Ready, set, red car­pet

So­nia Kruger and Jules Lund share their 2014 Logies sur­vival se­crets

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

BE­TWEEN them, red car­pet hosts So­nia Kruger and Jules Lund (left) have at­tended 25 Logies, so they know a thing or two about sur­viv­ing Aus­tralian TV’s night of nights.

Their tip for this year’s Gold Lo­gie, from the field of Scott Cam, Andy Lee, Steve Pea­cocke, Asher Ked­die, Essie Davis and Car­rie Bick­more, is un­sur­pris­ing: Nine’s Cam. But their big­gest tip? Ap­proach the night with hu­mour.

SO­NIA: “Of the cer­e­monies I can re­call, I think I’ve at­tended about 15. My sense of fash­ion evolved over the years and I stopped repli­cat­ing my high-school for­mal look. You have to make sure your shoes are com­fort­able, and go easy on the free bub­bly. My most mem­o­rable Logies mo­ment was dancing with Flo Rida dur­ing his open­ing num­ber two years ago.

JULES: “This is my 10th Logies. The first year I didn’t get in­ter­viewed on the red car­pet, no mat­ter how many times I walked up and down. The next year I got air­time by host­ing the damn thing. About eight years ago Sophie Monk fainted in front of me and I caught her. She still won’t call me her knight in shin­ing ar­mour, per­haps be­cause I stole her clutch while she was out cold. I’ve col­lected pics that would de­stroy a few house­hold names if they got out.”
