Scott Cam wins most coveted Gold Logie for Most Popular TV Personality

The Logie’s drew some unexpected results this year, with The Block’s Scott Cam taking home the Gold Logie for Most Popular TV Personality to prevent a second-time win from Offspring’s Asher Keddie.

An ecstatic Cam accepted the award from host Kylie Minogue, "Well, this is really unbelievable. I just kissed Kylie Minogue. That's pretty cool," Cam said.

Curiously, Cam took out the top award but The Block lost the top award to Hamish & Andy's Gap Year Asia. My Kitchen Rules also came out ahead of both seasons of The Block.

This was likely as a result of the two seasons of The Block (The Block – The Block: Sky High and The Block: All-Stars) included in the same category, causing a split in the votes.

Asher Keddie didn’t disappoint, taking home two Silver Logie’s for Most Popular Actress and Outstanding Actress for her performance in Offspring.

Another shock upset was Home and Away winning Most Popular Drama Logie in its 27th year of production, ahead of popular shows Offspring, House Husbands, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Winners and Losers.

Comedies were in favour this year, with SBS winning the Logie for Most Outstanding Light Entertainment Program for the second season of Housos and Hamish and Andy taking out the Most Popular Light Entertainment Program against The Voice.

Lachy Hulme won outstanding actor for his role as Sir Frank Packer in Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch Story.

Chris Lilley won his first Silver Logie as most popular actor for his comedic portrayal of a private school in Ja’mie: Private School Girl.
