Ah, the Logies … it’s not about whether you win or lose … it’s about how fabulous you look on the red carpet at Crown Casino.
I’ve never been to a Logies ceremony despite spending vast swathes of my life embroiled in entertainment journalism, though I did judge an industry category one year. Oooooh-er.
Channel 9 and TV Week lifted the ban on celebs using social media during the ceremony so it was selfie central.
Here are some of my fave Instagram snaps.

And … the Gold Logie went to …
Carrie Bickmore, who gave a moving speech while wearing a beanie to raise awareness of brain cancer, which killed her husband in 2010.
“Throughout his cancer journey, he used to wear a lot of hats and he used to wear a lot of beanies and that was because he felt embarrassed about his scars and his head.
“I used to say to him don’t be embarrassed, scars are really, really cool and beanies are also really cool.
“I want to ask anybody that is on TV in Australia tomorrow, to whack on a beanie. I want to get the nation talking about brain cancer.”
Later in the night, Hamish Blake donned the beanie for this fun shot …
He captioned it: “Brilliant work Carrie. #beaniesforbraincancer.”
