Sevens’ reality cooking show, My Kitchen Rules, may have taken out the most watched program last night with 1.647 million viewers, but it’s Nine’s broadcast of the TV Week Logies that has everyone talking this morning. Particularly presenter Carrie Bickmore’s acceptance speech.

The Logies nabbed just shy of one million viewers (971,000) in a five-city metro, during its 7-11pm broadcast, according to OzTam preliminary ratings, and it’s the talk of the town this morning, thanks to Bickmore’s call to raise awareness of brain cancer.

After picking up the Gold Logie and deemed the most popular personality on TV, Bickmore, donning a beanie, used her acceptance speech to talk to the audience about brain cancer and her husband who had passed away from the disease in 2010.

“Everyone thinks it is this rare form of cancer. It is not. It kills more people under 40, and it is a lot of you in this room, more people under 40 than any other cancer,” she said.

“It kills more kids than any other disease. In 2010, my husband, Greg, was one of the unlucky ones.”

Bickmore stressed she wanted everyone who is in TV to slap on a beanie this morning and use the hashtag #beaniesforbraincancer. The hashtag is currently trending in Australia with a number of Aussie presenters pulling on one of the woolly head-warmers.

Twitter users have jumped on the hashtag and have begun sharing their own photos too.

Bickmore also took out the Most Popular Presenter Logie for her work with Ten’s The Project.

Asher Keddie, from Ten’s Offspring and Party Tricks, won the Logie for Most Popular Actress. The Most Popular Actor went to Home and Away star Steve Peacocke.

Most Outstanding Drama was awarded to Foxtel’s Wentworth, with Seven’s Home and Away taking out Most Popular Drama.

Digital: Is it Time to Call a Spade A F@cking Shovel?

In his latest post, B&T’s favourite industry contrarian, Robert Strohfeldt, argues the word “digital” is clouding and confusing too many aspects of advertising and its outcomes… Just looked at another of the many “online” advertising/marketing papers I receive. There are so many, I can’t keep up. You would think traditional media is no longer relevant, […]
