In news that certainly won’t shock you, given the current state of affairs – the 2020 Logies has officially been cancelled.

Bauer Media released a statement this evening, citing COVID-19-related challenges and “government restrictions” as the impetus for the cancellation.

“All parties agree the most positive outcome is to not hold the TV WEEK Logies, including public voting, in 2020, but to stage an even bigger event on the Gold Coast in 2021,” Fiona Connolly, publisher at Bauer Media, said. “The TV WEEK Logies is loved because it is a live event, with viewers at home enjoying seeing the red-carpet glamour and the entertainment community coming together to celebrate the television industry.”

“While we are postponing the TV WEEK Logie Awards for 2020 and returning in 2021, the 2021 Logies will be an epic event that will take into consideration the 12 months of television just past, as well as all programs that will air for the remainder of this year.”

The Logies was meant to kick off on the Gold Coast in June.

This’ll be the first time the event won’t be held since ye ol’ ’59.
