Hamish Blake took out the night time’s greatest award with a hilarious speech – however the place was all people else? Here’s what occurred on the Logie Awards.
The 2022 Logie Awards had been a prolonged and infrequently bumpy affair, with shock no-shows, awkward sledges and quite a lot of unfastened moments because the night time wore on.
Earlier, a slew of native celebs walked the pink carpet on the Star on the Gold Coast earlier than the ceremony bought underway.
After a four-hour-plus ceremony – was it at all times this lengthy? – listed below are the highlights and lowlights from the 2022 Logies:
Hamish wins the Gold
The Lego Masters presenter – “a man who’s wife is so rich he can play with Lego all day,” as presenter Dave Hughes quipped – took house the night time’s greatest award.
And his speech was nice – he pretended to learn some nice print on his statuette: “‘Congratulations, you have won 2022 Gold Logie. As there was no Gold Logie in 2021 or 2020 they jackpotted. This counts for three.’ Oh my god. I won one two years ago. To win four of these? That’s too much.”
And he paid tribute to his spouse and his kids – who had been already in mattress however who he stated would watch his win on YouTube tomorrow, “when I make them.”
And because the ceremony pushed previous the four-hour mark, he wrapped issues up with a thank-you to the followers: “If you are watching this, you’re an insomniac. If you are also somebody that supports Australian TV, we would not be here without you. So thank you to the people at home.”
Chrissie completely nails it
Chrissie Swan was hilarious presenting one of many night time’s first awards from the second she bought on stage with co-presenter Karl Stefanovic. As the solid of Home and Away lingered on-stage after accepting the final award, she catcalled of their path: “Irene… get back to the cafe.”
She had a joke for each nominee within the Most Popular Lifestyle Program class – the lifeguards on Bondi Rescue made her wish to “unlearn how to swim,” whereas she longed for the host of Love It Or List It to “come over to my house and telling me how disgusting and unlivable it is.
But she saved her best burn for her co-presenter.
“I came to the rehearsal, so I get to do the honours,” she stated pointedly when it got here time to open the envelope and announce the winner – a jab which drew gasps from the group and a sheepish rationalization from Stefanovic.
“I was having cocktails, living my best life and getting on it,” he advised her.
Minutes later, cameras reduce to Karl at his desk, having fun with a beer with a packet of Panadol in hand. Let’s see how he’s feeling at 5:30am tomorrow morning internet hosting Today…
A little bit later within the present, Stefanovic’s Today co-host Ally Langdon copped a sledge from her co-presenter, Sunrise’s Sam Mac – and this one was positively beneath the belt.
He advised her Today was Sunrise’s greatest breakfast TV rival – effectively, “behind the ABC.” Langdon winced on the joke, a reference to Today just lately falling to 3rd within the brekkie TV rankings conflict behind Sunrise and the ABC’s News Breakfast.
Big winners had been no-shows
There had been barely awkward scenes as lots of the night time’s foremost winners weren’t current – Most Popular Actress winner Kitty Flanagan, Most Popular Actor winner Guy Pearce, Most Outstanding Actress winner Anna Torv and Most Outstanding Actor winner Richard Roxburgh all didn’t come to the Logies.
Torv was the one one to movie an acceptance speech video.
“Richard Roxburgh isn’t here – and he also didn’t send in an acceptance speech video, so you’ll have to imagine what he might have said,” quipped Tim Minchin after one more award went out to an absent actor.
At least a few of the winners who had been there gave good speeches.
Have You Been Paying Attention gained Most Popular Comedy Program and star Sam Pang confirmed why throughout their speech: “I did want to acknowledge running into the 1967 Gold Logie winner Hazel Phillips who is here tonight. 92 years of age,” he stated, earlier than turning to the present’s host Tom Gleisner.
“Bit awkward for Tom. It’s weird when you run into an ex.”
Elsewhere, Hamish Blake gained the Most Popular Presenter award, and Tony Armstrong the Graham Kennedy award for Most Popular New Talent.

Big laughs for Tom Gleeson and Sophie Monk
Reigning Gold Logie winner Tom Gleeson offered an award with Sophie Monk – they usually had been each equally humorous. Gleeson began by referencing his – ahem – animated 2019 Gold Logie speech.
“I am not apologising for being drunk; at least I was drunk late at night at an awards ceremony where it belongs. I wasn’t drunk early in the morning in the third-highest rating breakfast show, am I right?” he requested, because the digicam reduce to Karl Stefanovic.
“By the way, if (Karl) wins the Gold Logie tonight, we will know they have gone back to what they used to be – rigged.”
Monk landed a couple of humorous one-liners of her personal, principally at her personal expense – however maybe the funniest was once they revealed the Most Popular Actor Award had been gained by an absent Guy Pearce.
“Guy Pearce could not be here so I will accept it on his behalf…. but I bet he would be stoked,” she introduced.
Julia Morris’ controversial opening monologue
The very first thing viewers noticed after two Logies-free years was a prolonged and at instances fairly wild opening monologue from comic Julia Morris.
“What sort of night do we have ahead of us when we let a loose unit like me open the show,” stated a pantsuit-clad Morris.
“The deal was that I could open the show as long as I dressed like a man,” she continued, telling viewers that whereas she was wearing a go well with, “I do identify as a woman.”
“Instead of a rich white man opening the show, they’ve gone for a white woman earning 30% less,” she stated.
Then she railed in opposition to “cancel culture,” asking who within the room had been cancelled – and went on a spectacular rant about what precisely it takes to be a 54-year-old girl working in tv.
“I’m a 54-year-old woman. I dye my hair. I wax my legs. I have botulism injected into my forehead. I have fake nails. I have age spots lasered off my décolletage. I’ve had the hoods cut back in my eyes guys. Literally my eyes cut right back and opened. I have hydro facials. I’ve a personal trainer. 54 to try and stay on the television. You know the worst thing about looking this good is?” she requested.
“No-one is allowed to tell me anymore.”
As she wrapped her speech, Morris remarked that she used to look at the Logies from house and surprise why “the same seven people” bought a lot of the awards and work within the TV trade.
“Here is the thing – now that I am one of them, I don’t want that to change. If we could not change that.”
It was an at instances bumpy journey, with a couple of moments that fell flat within the room – and jokes about Twitter being irrelevant didn’t win her many followers on, shock shock, Twitter, the place her title was trending – with many complaints it had been an unfunny opening to the present. Others questioned whether or not her joke about “identifying as a woman” had been actually essential.
Patti Newton’s shifting tribute to Bert
Facing her first Logies with out husband Bert Newton by her facet, Patti Newton offered a brand new award in his honour – and admitted she wasn’t positive if she’d be capable to do it.
“This beautiful man of mine, isn’t he fabulous,” she stated of Bert, briefly talking about her late husband within the current tense.
“What am I going to do without him? I actually didn’t think I was going to be able to do this tonight, because it is still very raw and I will never get over him not being here. But I know he is with me,” she stated.
