Australia's biggest stars are prepping for TV's night of nights

Gold Logie nominees for 2019 are Hard Chat's Tom Gleeson, The Project host Waleed Aly, Doctor Doctor star Rodger Corser, Sunrise presenter Sam Mac, Living Room's Amanda Keller, Neighbours actress Eve Morey and Gardening Australia's Costa Georgiardis.

"Do I have any regrets, no, I got a result".

"I'm taking it as a win for comedy because comedy to me is really important. So maybe I do deserve this award", he added.

"According to Grant Denyer I've ruined the Logies and it's never going to happen again, but at least I won this all by myself".

And there were indeed many wins for the ABC, with the national broadcaster scooping the most awards of any network or platform. "The last time the ABC won was Norman Gunston, who inspired this campaign", he said of Garry McDonald's iconic character.

"What I want to say to Grant is the two-year plan worked beautifully, mate, thank you for conspiring with me". "I love jokes", he said.

"It's done a lot of great things for a lot of great people.... for me it represents a joke, but I love jokes, I really enjoy them, I really think we should all lighten the fuck up".

He said the aim of his campaign had been "to have fun with the whole thing".

The 2019 TV Week Logie Awards were just as much about the fashion as the awards themselves.
