She is a showbiz veteran with her finger on the pulse.
And on Friday, Kerri-Anne Kennerley insisted The Living Room’s Amanda Keller is the only contender for the Gold Logie.

‘This woman has filmed many different shows, she has done brilliantly in radio, she’s on Friday night prime time television- she’s really put in the hard yards.’
The Studio Ten star was passionate in her ringing endorsement of her fellow blonde TV host.
She added: ‘I just think she’s a great personality and everybody else is great, but they haven’t done what she’s done. It should be her.’
In addition to her work on The Living Room, Amanda co-hosted the Dancing with the Stars reboot alongside Grant Denyer and is also the co-host of WSFM’s Jonesy & Amanda radio show.

Amanda has some tough competition for the Gold Logie this year, including The Project’s Waleed Aly, comedian Tom Gleeson, and Sunrise’s Sam Mac.
It comes after Amanda was targeted in a smear campaign by Gold Logie rival Gleeson ahead of the TV night of nights.
But despite reports The Living Room host was ‘struggling’ with his tactics, Amanda said the Hard Quiz host was just playing ‘the game’ as a nominee.
Talking on Channel 10’s The Project on Wednesday, the 57-year-old comedian said she wasn’t phased by Tom’s smear campaigns against her and is letting the fate rest in the public’s hands.

Who will take away the Gold? Amanda and Tom are up against other nominees Waleed Aly, Eve Morey, Rodger Corser and Costa Georgiadis
‘I’ve seen a couple of articles that have said I’m very upset by Tom, and that’s actually not the case,’ she told the panel.
‘It’s not as controversial or contentious I think as everyone thinks it is, we’re just all in the soup, going about being nominees – it’s a public vote so you can’t argue with that.’
‘On the night the person with the most votes wins and that’s the game and it’s as straight forward as that,’ she added.
The TV Week Logie Awards will take place at The Star Gold Coast on June 30.
