'Welcome To The Last Ever Logie Awards': Tom Gleeson's Savage Opening Monologue

The controversial Gold Logie nominee didn't hold back while opening the show.

Gleeson has made this year's Gold Logie race very interesting, trying his hand at lighthearted smear campaigns against his competitors like Amanda Keller, Sam Mac and Eve Morey.

Taking to the stage to open the show, Gleeson didn't hold back, totally taking the feedback of how he's run his Logies race on the chin.

"Welcome to the last ever TV Week Logie Awards," the comedian joked, "I've wrecked it. I'm oh-so-sorry."

Taking aim at the other Gold nominees, Gleeson broke them up into categories calling Amanda, Waleed and Rodger Corser the "business class nominees", joking that Eve, Sam and Costa were the "Jetstar nominees".

"Anyway," Gleeson continued, "Where is [Costa]? I think I saw him out the front selling a Big Issue."

It wasn't just his fellow nominees Gleeson took aim at, singling out the 'Married At First Sight' cast.

"Congratulations to 'Married at First Sight' by the way for their monster ratings," Gleeson said, "Channel 9 were happy to cash in on your ratings by showing off your tacky weddings... and fired Karl Stefanovic for having one!

"Karl, you're back. When will they take you off the bench, Karl? Today Show needs you," Gleeson added. "I was on The Today Show the other day to promote the Logies. Ratings so low I felt like I was keeping a secret..."
