Home And Away's Meagher Takes Home Gold Logie

HOME AND AWAY veteran RAY MEAGHER was the toast of Australian TV on Sunday (02May10) after taking home top honours at the 2010 Logie Awards.
The 65-year-old soap star, who has played Alf Stewart on the series for 22 years, was presented with the Gold Logie after he was nominated in the category for the first time at the TV Week Logie Awards, which celebrates the best in TV Down Under.
Meagher saw off competition from Packed To The Rafters actress Rebecca Gibney as well as his Home And Away co-star Esther Anderson to win the prize.
He joked to the crowd, "These things have never meant much to me over the years, really, mainly because I've never held one. All of a sudden they seem unbelievably important...
"Just being in constant work for the 40 years I've been in the business has just been a wonderful reward. And certainly the last 22 years on Home and Away is more than enough reward. This is just like the icing on the cake."
TV comedy/drama Packed To The Rafters scooped three trophies, while MasterChef Australia also struck gold with two Logies. Game show Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation was named both the Most Popular and Most Outstanding Light Entertainment programme.
Veteran performer Bert Newton was given a standing ovation as he kicked off the Melbourne event, which he hosted just days after it was announced his actor son Matthew had been admitted to rehab to treat undisclosed personal issues.
