Hamish Blake is the winner of the 2012 Gold Logie! The comedian and star of Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year, who told us he thought his chances of winning were extremely low, beat last year’s winner Karl Stefanovic, Carrie Bickmore, Adam Hills, Asher Keddie and Esther Anderson to be crowned this year’s most popular personality on TV. (An error saw the Herald Sun posting about Hamish’s win before the telecast had aired.) During his acceptance speech he thanked the other nominees, his fiancée Zoë Foster (he called her his “best friend” and “rock”), the people he works with, and of course, partner-in-crime Andy Lee, who he said he loves more “off-screen.” Hamish said he was humbled by the win and praised the Australian TV industry, saying it was filled with “good people.” He finished off his speech by saying his “first act as president” was to introduce his “man slaves” One Direction, who performed their hit “One Thing” to close the 2012 Logies show.
