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.
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.
