Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 22/04/98

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Gusworld at the Logies

I'm sure some kind of temporary insanity must have overtaken me on Sunday night when I decided to watch the Logies. After all, there are certain things which we can practically guarantee will happen on television's night of nights:

If you sensibly decided not to watch the telecast, rest assured that all these things did in fact happen. Indeed, the only mild surprise of the evening was that Rob Sitch was nominated for an outstanding achievement by an actor award for his work on Frontline. By no means am I knocking the Sitchmeister's performance; it's simply that this award is actor-voted, and I'm surprised that someone who entered the industry via medicine and comedy sketch-writing made it past the first post.

Actually, the evening's high point came when the Frontline team went onstage to accept their Outstanding Achievement in Comedy award. Jane Kennedy warned the audience that winning an award that late was very dangerous, since they'd been drinking all night. Sitch then proved the point by repeatedly grabbing the mike and singing 'Don't Fall In Love With A Dreamer'. Well, it worked for me.
