Gold Logie Nominees Amanda And Waleed Promise They Haven't Been Feuding
The competition is on between our Gold Logie nominees Amanda Keller and Waleed Aly.
Chatting to 'The Sunday Project' from the Gold Coast where the Logie Award nominations were announced today, the pair displayed their sportsmanship in vying for the same gong.
"We're very good friends, we haven't been feuding," deadpanned Amanda.
"It's FRIENDLY, isn't it, Waleed?" she joked.
Waleed revealed he actually wanted Amanda to win the Gold last year but his feelings had changed considering they're now both in a heated competition for the same TV Week statuette.

The newly minted ~frenemies~ then revealed the deliciously petty victory laps they'd take part in if they win the Gold next month.
"I'd celebrate by knocking on Amanda's hotel room door, showing her the award and running off giggling like a school girl," said Aly.
And Amanda? She promised that she'd prank call Waleed at 4 am and do the same.
Waleed is being recognised for his work on 'The Project' this past year, including his powerful interview with New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern in March following the Christchurch terror attack.
While Amanda has received the nomination for her work on both 'The Living Room' and 'Dancing With The Stars' prompting Lisa Wilkinson to ask whether she'd consider a program that blended the two concepts together.
"Wouldn't that be great? All the guys have got the legs for it, let's face it.
"Or we go the other way and every contestant on 'Dancing With The Stars' has to construct some kind of cupboard while they're dancing. And maybe clear the glands of a dog at the same time!" said Keller.
We'd definitely watch that.
