Ah, the Logies. Australian television's night of nights; or, should I say, the night when Australia's top c-grade celebrities and a couple of imported f-grade American celebrities come together to celebrate the remnants of the Australian television industry: McLeod's Daughters, Rove Live and a couple of soapies and lifestyle shows.
If the Logies is anything to go by, the Australian television industry is remarkably homogenous. So many thin blonde women. So many young starlets who I can barely tell the difference between since I don't watch Home and Away or Neighbours.
Case in point: apparently the person on the left of the above shot, 'Pippa Black', is a different person to the 'Eliza Taylor-Cotter' of the next shot. Can you tell the difference between then? I'm certainly struggling.
Jessica Alba looked pretty, but the girl could look stunning in a paper bag.
Avril Lavigne was her typical monosyllabic, underdressed self.
Green seemed to be the colour of the night. I wasn't particularly impressed by any of the dresses though.
The award for worst dressed of the night wasn't a hard decision. I'm singling out Nicky Whelan for this hideous floral ensemble. It doesn't look that bad from this angle, but trust me, it is that bad.
Michala Banas had an equally horrible dress on, but I seem to locate a photo of it. Perhaps all the photographers were too horrified to click their cameras when they saw her outfit.
Runner up for worst dressed is Natalie Saleeba. She looks a bit like a tiered wedding cake.
As for the best dressed of the night, it's a tough call. There were plenty of nice frocks out there, but they were all kind of boring.
So just because they dressed a little differently, I'm giving props to Tania Zaetta for wearing a sari...
... and to Jeanne Little for being her own crazy self in a boring television world. Forget the Gold Amercian Express dress, here's the next big thing: Frill-neck lizard stylin's, brought to you by Mix FM.
The I-have-no-idea-what-to-say-about-this award goes to Sandra Sully. Anyone want to help me out here? I can't decide if I hate it or like it. Maybe she thought the night had a Strictly Ballroom theme?
The WTF award goes to Megan Gale and Andy Lee for being the odd couple of the century. He looks ok in this picture, but really, how on earth did this man score Megan Gale?
I. Just. Don't. Get. It.
You've got to feel a little sorry for Anna Jennings-Edquist, girlfriend of Hamish Blake. She looked nice, but standing next to the Amazon that is Megan Gale she just looked... really short.
On a final note, I think
Til next year! Well, if there are any Australian shows left by then.
