LO­GIE AWARDS

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

Chan­nel 9, Sun­day, 7.30pm ★★★★ It was the late, great co­me­dian and ac­tor Mau­rie Fields who, be­tween sips of beer at a Lo­gie Awards cer­e­mony, qui­etly sug­gested you’d have rocks in your head to take on the host­ing gig. He had a point. Win­ning over the crowd in a Lo­gies ball­room is con­sid­ered one of TV’S all-time tough tasks. Prob­a­bly ex­plains why this year therewill be a num­ber of pre­sen­ters rather than a solo host. Here’s hop­ing therewill be some mo­ments this year that are gen­uinely good — singers Tony Ben­nett and Seal should add some class — but we’ll also be on the look­out for mo­ments that are mem­o­rable for all thewrong rea­sons. Can we please have a booze-spiked ac­cep­tance speech from award nom­i­nee Karl Ste­fanovic? And who will be the at­ten­tion-crav­ing star­let who’d have had more flesh cov­ered up if she’d ar­rived wear­ing a cou­ple of Band-aids? DD
