Now the hype has died down a little, the 61st Annual TV Week Logie Awards were held on Sunday June 30 at The Star Gold Coast. If you’re a D-Generation / Working Dog fan, it was a fun night.
To begin with, Tony Martin was invited back to be the announcer of the awards, after the success of the 2018 presentation. But more on that later…
The Working Dog team had two entries for the one award – Most Popular Comedy Program – which Have You Been Paying Attention? and Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventures were up against each other. When the winner was announced, HYBPA? became victorious, and Tom Gleisner picked up the prize.
Later on, Mick Molloy and Jane Kennedy presented Best Lifestyle Program, but not before some sparkling rep-ar-tee… with Tony making reference to Bargearse, and Mick and Jane giving themselves gentle ribbings over Frontline and The Mick Molloy Show.
Even further into the night, Have You Been Paying Attention? took away the Logie for Most Outstanding Entertainment Program.
Finally, we here at Champagne Comedy watched all 3 & 1/2 hours of mayhem to give you the best bits of the night – the Tony Martin supercut.
PS: No champagne and pingers this year.
Congratulations everyone involved!
