If James Stewart wins a Logie this year, he already has his acceptance speech prepared, and fans will be surprised to learn who he thanks.
The 47-year-old Home and Away star stated on Thursday that he does not believe he can beat out the other contenders in his category, which includes Ray Meagher and Sam Neill.
However, he added that if he wins Most Popular Actor, he will thank the Home and Away cameramen, according to The Courier Mail.
‘I just want to thank our crew – they’re the ones working all of the really hard yards, 14 hours a day,’ remarked the actor.
‘They witness us at our finest and worst. And, you know, if a cinematographer who’s been doing this for 30 years approaches you and pats you on the back and says, “That was good,” you know it was, because he’s seen a million of them.’
‘I’d like to thank them, but I’ll only have about four seconds before Sam Pang [host] makes a joke at my expense,’ he added.
The biggest night in Australian television is approaching.
For the first time since 1986, the TV Week Logie Awards will be held in Sydney on July 30.
While voting for the prized tournament is still open, bookmakers believe they have a solid notion of who will take home a trophy.
Bet Right think comedian and Lego Masters presenter Hamish Blake is extremely likely to be awarded the Gold Logie for most popular personality on Australian television.
The company’s bookies are so confident he will take home the trophy that there is a large gap in odds between him and the second most-likely star to win, Channel Seven’s Sonia Kruger.
Hamish’s odds on the website are $1.45 as of Thursday night, while the Big Brother host is at $7.50.
‘They see us at our best and at our worst. And, you know, if a cameraman that’s been doing this for 30 years, if he comes up to you and gives you a pat on the back and goes, “That was good,” you know it was, because he’s seen a million of them,’ he added
