OH YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT: if you’re a performer, presenter or nominee at Sunday’s 60th annual Logies, the ‘Strayan Golden Globes – a term that is definitely in parlance, don’t @ me – held for the first time in the Gold Coast this year, you’ll be stumbling home with a goodie bag chockers with the good stuff, like cute, patterned socks, maybe with pugs on ’em, and a seven-day unlimited pass to Warner Bros Movie World, Sea World and Wet’n’Wild, but only one night’s accomodation at The Star Hotel Gold Coast (and a $250 voucher to The Star).
Because we, like everyone in the entire world, love free shit, let’s take a look at the $1680.55-worth of swag the super glam celebs in the Australian TV industry are scoring at this, the annual celebration of the versatility of Scott Cam.
Now, if you can just clear your mind of the mental image of Karl Stefanovic hooning about on a water slide in a pair of socks with watermelons on them or some shit, let’s consider the rest of the celebrities’ hauls:
We’ve got free choccie; a personalised luggage tag; a candle and diffuser; spesh Logies tea; headphones; a pack of colouring pens and fineliners; a chopping board; a silver bracelet; a bottle of plonk; a portable charger; a shitload of beauty products for men and women; and finally, an issue of TV Week‘s souvenir 60 Years of TV Week Logies edition, with national treasure Bert Newton on the cover.
Bet you wish you applied to be a Bachelor contestant and copped a Most Popular New Talent nom like this guy, huh:
FYI: this year the TV personalities vying for the coveted Gold Logie are Amanda Keller, Andrew Winter, Grant Denyer, Jessica Marais, Rodger Corser and Tracy Grimshaw, after Samuel Johnson scored the shiny gold statuette last year.
So there you go: if you’re interested in watching Australia’s annual celebration of our collective cultural cringe, you can watch it live on Channel 9 on Sunday from 7pm.
