Waleed Aly won the 2016 Gold Logie Award for Best Personality On Australian TV


The 2016 TV Week Logie Awards have come and gone with Australian TV icons and celebrities alike dressing up for an evening of laughs and celebration at the Crown Palladium last night in Melbourne.

The 58th Annual Logie Awards featured a number of talented TV icons accepting awards with comedian Kitty Flanagan and The Project host Pete Helliar stealing the show with their own hilariously outrageous styles of comedy.

TV presenter Waleed Aly won the Gold Logie Award for Best Personality On Australian TV and a Silver Logie for Best Presenter ‘The Project’, honouring his wife and colleagues while throwing in a few jokes in to match the overall jovial theme of the night.

The 37-year-old journalist, commentator and now TV host gave a powerful speech after accepting his Gold Logie, thanking those around him for the support they gave him.

The night was not without a few awkward moments though, with past Gold Logie winner Craig McLachlan providing one of the most awkward moments of last night’s ceremony while presenting an award with actress Miranda Tapsell.

“It’s a good feeling winning a Logie — in fact, it’s a feeling I know. I won the Gold Logie in 1990,” he said.

“Really? I was like, three, in 1990,” Tapsell said jokingly.

The most awkward moment came as McLachlan tried to introduce footage of more of his former Logie wins, while Tapsell pushed him away from the mic, with cameras cutting away to unapproving nominees.

What the nominees wore also caused a stir at last night Logie Awards as Anton Enus and Jessica Marais stole the night with their sleek and dashing attire.

Of course, there were a few fashion blunders and unique outfits, yet SBS World News Australia presenter and journalist Lee Lin Chin’s outfit managed to say ‘I play by my own rules’ while still looking great.
