And The Logie Goes to...

PartyAustralian media’s night of nights sure put on a show for the country as Tom Gleeson opened the awards ceremony by ripping on almost everyone in the room.

The night was full of upsets, one of the biggest being that both Nine Network and Seven Network both went home empty handed as Ten and ABC finally turned up to the party.

The night also had a number of amazing performances including Jessica Mauboy, Guy Sebastian and Delta Goodrem taking main stage, along with international artist Why Don’t We performing their smash hit ‘I Don’t Belong In This Club’.

Dylan Alcott received the Graham Kennedy Award for most popular new talent and spoke about the lack of diversity in Australian media when it comes to people with disabilities.

Legendary journalist Kerry O’Brien was inducted into the TV Week Hall of Fame with an exceptional acceptance speech that outlined a number of issues in the media scene.

He brought to light the problems ABC is currently facing, making a joke about the Federal Police raids that happened earlier this year.

"The ABC is still forging its way through strong headwinds, probably never threatened more than it is today by a combination of forces, cash strapped ... and still confronting the same, sad ideological prejudice," he said.

"Now even the Federal Police, some of whom have themselves leaked to us in the past, have seen fit to raid the place.”

He also went on to describe the problems between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

"We all have an opportunity together in this term of the Federal Parliament to make a genuine effort to understand and support what is embodied in the Uluru Statement From the Heart, a remarkable document, forged in unity by more than 250 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders representing the oldest surviving culture on the face of the Earth, a culture that adds a richness that is unique to this continent. And yet we other Australians are mostly ignorant of it," he said.

It's safe to say that the 2019 Logies went off with a bang, as it always does.
