Gogglebox Australia

Gogglebox Wins At The 2016 Logies!

Gogglebox has cemented its place as a national television favourite with a win at the TV Week Logies!

The reality show, which takes viewers into the homes of other TV-loving Australians like themselves, was awarded a Silver Logie for Best Factual Program.

The families and households on the show were thrilled to have the highest honour to their names.

 

Gogglebox wasn't the only Foxtel show to receive a well-deserved nod.

Celia Ireland also received the gong for Best Supporting Actress for her role in SOHO's Aussie prison drama, Wentworth

However, the shining moment of the night went to Noni Hazlehurst, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The A Place To Call Home star has lit up our screens for over two decades and is only the second woman to receive the Hall of Fame honour. 

Upon accepting her award she made an incredibly moving speech, touching on Australia's issues with prejudice and discrimination.

"I'm only the second women to be given this honour is merely a reflection of the prevailing zeitgeist, as is the odious suggestion in some quarters that the eligibility of our esteemed colleagues, Waleed Aly and Lee Lin Chin, to be considered for the gold is questionable," she said, brushing over the gender and racial inequality still pervading the television industry.

"Things are clearly changing, but they are changing glacially slowly. The great thing about glaciers is that if you aren't on them, you go under. I've been riding that glacier for 40 years and I'm staying on top of it.

“Change only happens when enough people put up their hands and say ‘we’ve had enough.'

"I look forward to the day where it’s not an issue whether a man or a woman, or an Asian person or a Muslim gets anything in this country. We share more similarities than differences and I think I’m really keen to promote that idea because I think any other idea is divisive and potentially disastrous.”

Gold Logie winner Waleed Aly also made a similar speech of the night touching on diversity in Australian television.
