our Australian television awards

Greetings all,
Now i don't watch Neighbours, reality shows, Home & Away (ooppss, my cousin has been on it again this year, sorry Alyssa) or morning television - which eliminates MOST of the people who attended the Logies Awards last night . . . as a lover of fashion & glamour, entertainment & fun, i'll make an attempt at posting about it anyway, however unqualified i am.
I do watch/ obsess over OffSpring though, Asher Keddie, you are a fashion icon.  I don't care who dresses you, hair, make up, clothes, you totally OWN every look from jeans to formal.
 Chrissie Swan, i adore you.  Sure you might mock yourself saying "look at me, back to my pre-baby figure" but it's not annoying, it's endearing.  That joke you made about Lincoln Lewis & being his naughty babysitter, had me giggling, especially when you were distracted in your own thoughts about it & forgot for a moment, where you were & to announce the nominees. 
 Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins is always going to look stunning . . . this is for my husband who doesn't see a lot of girls or glamour in Afghanistan . . .
 i find you faultless, beyond pretty, your complexion can carry any colour, you always look so friendly & approachable too.  Have you been in a show i missed??  Maybe on pay television??  Anyway, you looked gorgeous.
 Oh Kat Stewart, look at you, minutes after popping out a baby.  Can i just say a big hurrah to anyone not making a big deal about how slim Kat looks after said baby - some women, celebrity or not, are naturally skinny & indeed, have a baby & kapow, are skinny again, without fad dieting, working out, obsessing.  I have friends & family who were the same, even me - back in my 20s & baby making, had my size 10 pre-baby body in a week, a little jiggly but the 25kg disappeared, just like that, every baby, especially after the twins!!  For me it was breastfeeding, best weight loss EVER!! 
 Now if you said Michelle, Flo & Megan were coming over for Morning Tea, you'd be expecting the ladies from the Country Women's Association, an upsidedown pineapple cake & scones??  Michelle Bridges, fitness queen, adore; Flo Rida, rapper, fantastic (where do i get me a microphone like that); & Megan Gale, supermodel, gorgeous.
 Yay, Poh Ling Yeow, you are just too perky & adorable for words.  Do you think Poh ever has a bad day??
 I used to be big fans of Hamish & Andy on the radio.  Not sure if i'm getting old or now they're 30+ i find the 'getting laid humour' ridiculous, but the love between these two boys & Hamish Blake's Gold Logie speech . . . absolutely fantastic.  My husband has a best mate & they act like these two (only jokes on them - they have 6 daughters, including 2 sets of twins between them now, mwahahaha, plus our boy - who they take fishing & camping to de-girl themselves.)  I so hope our son has a best mate as close & wonderful when he grows up.
Special mention to Mick Molloy's homage to the television greats who passed away in the last year; Adam Hill's exposed leg Angelina Jolie style; Denise Scott's presentation; & the performances - i still find the One Direction boys a bit whimpy & breathy, cheering a little that no one in this household is a fan. 
Now the Logies are over, do we go into gawd-awful non ratings television time, no, wait a moment, OffSpring is back this week, yay!!  Love Posie

Logies is a good show to sew to which I enjoyed last night - and yep, you picked all the best parts for me too.

Pip said...

thanks for the Logies commentary, I was too tired to watch. Like you I love Asher Keddie and whatever she wears. Jennifer Hawkins IS friendly and approachable, I saw her with some little girls one day, they wanted her autograph and she happily signed and then posed for photos with them.

Thanks for your fab tips on carpel tunnel surgery - I have passed them on. Our house is not so lucky as to avoid the One Direction obsession. I take the 'this too shall pass' ethos to keep me sane... lol

Sally said...

Yes. I'm not sure what all the fuss about "one direction" is about. They could barely sing?

Special 'K' said...

Totally agree with every letter of this post! Have a great day. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

I love Offspring (its like shes inside my head sometimes!) Im so glad Asher won

Sarah B said...

Asher Keddie was my fashion pick, she looked stunning. Yes, I'm a big fan of Offspring, so excited it's back this week, but she was fab in Paper Giants as well x

I watched the red carpet arrivals and then couldn't keep my eyes open (ah the joys of a baby). I loved Jennifer Hawkin's dress - I know she could wear a paper bag and still look stunning but I loved that hers was stylish without being too revealing (apart from the flash of her gorgeous legs) - such a beautiful colour and loved the choice she went with for shoes/nails.

Another Asher Keddie fan here Miss Posie - I guess she attracts fans of all ages! How the Logies have changed over the years. No one collapsed in a drunken heap last night. How disappointing.

I don't know if I have watched the logies before, but I did last night (I still like Hamish and Andy- despite the picking up girls humour, I like their self deprecating, inclusive humour) anyway- I was surprised how much I liked it! It seemed so 'Aussie' to me. Kind of like, it was all trying to be 'pomp and ceremony' but couldn't do that without abit of taking the mickey out it itself as well- I loved that...Our night of nights...and what about hanging it on X for what they said last year, or letting Chrissie read it out in case she doesn't get invited back next year. Made me laugh!

Can't wait for offspring! Yay!!

Have been very scarce on internet this year, just trying to catch up a bit on your blog. Hope you have been well, xx Sannah

Ooh, I love that summary of the night's events. Especially seeing that I totally missed it. But now I think I have all the things that were important. And I'm off to watch Offspring for the first time tonight!

Thanks for the reminder gorgeous!
