And ahead of the ceremony, Daily Mail Australia looks back on some of the trashiest moments in the awards show’s history.
From Nick Cummins’ wild partying to Karl Stefanovic’s drunk live broadcast and THAT nudie run: The Logie Awards’ trashiest moments revealed ahead of TV’s night of nights
Perhaps the Logies’ most memorable controversy occurred when Karl Stefanovic hosted the Today show drunk the morning after 2009’s ceremony.
Karl reporting from Melbourne’s Crown Casino looking visibly worse for wear, and even confessed on air that he hadn’t had any sleep.
In a 2014 interview, the journalist admitted he was ‘smashed’ and that it would have gone unnoticed if it wasn’t for the popularity of YouTube.
Big night? On 2009, Karl went down in Logies history for reporting from Melbourne’s Crown Casino looking visibly worse for wear after the Logies, and years later admitted he was ‘smashed’ during the live TV appearance
Cheeky: A year later, he caused a stir once again when he thanked his then-wife Cassandra Thorburn’s ‘a**e’ while accepting the Most Popular Presenter award and the Gold Logie
‘This was the first Logies when stuff really started working on the Internet,’ Karl said.
‘I remember seeing it on Today Tonight and going, “Oh God”. I really was drunk… or at least I certainly looked and sounded drunk.’
In 2010, Karl was banned from the bar and made to work as a red carpet correspondent to prevent a repeat performance.

A year later, in 2011, Karl caused a stir yet again when he made a lewd comment about his then-wife Cassandra Thorburn while accepting an award on stage.
He said: ‘My beautiful wife Cass, who lets me go on these weird and wonderful excursions around the world… a great influence in my life. And she’s also got the best a**e I’ve ever seen!’
Another memorable moment took place in 2018, when The Bachelor’s Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ raised eyebrows after having a bit too much to drink.

Back in 1998, A Current Affair’s Tracy Grimshaw famously locked herself out of her hotel room by accident completely nude.
Whoops! Back in 1998, A Current Affair’s Tracy Grimshaw also sparked controversy after attending the Logies, having accidentally locked herself out of her hotel room completely nude. Pictured on the red carpet at the 2007 Logies
She previously blamed the embarrassing incident on the tequila shots she’d been drinking with her good friend James Packer.
Her ‘nudie run’ was widely known within the media industry, but didn’t become public knowledge until 2013, when Tracy shared a few small details on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
She finally told the whole story last year, telling News Corp: ‘I locked myself out of my hotel room starkers. It was 3.45am and there was no-one in the hallway.’
‘It was 3.45am and there was no-one in the hallway’: Somehow everybody in the industry knew about it the next day, but it wasn’t until 2013 that the incident made national headlines, after she divulged minor details to The Kyle & Jackie O Show
In her drunken state, she’d mistaken the entry door for the bathroom door, thus explaining how she ended up in the hallway without her keys.
In 1999, comedian Andrew Denton famously sat on James Packer’s lap when he was tasked with hosting the ceremony.
Perching on a bewildered James’ knee, Andrew said: ‘I’ll sit on your lap and I’d like you to drink this glass of water if you could while I talk.’

Baffling display: Perching on a bewildered James’ knee, Andrew said: ‘I’ll sit on your lap and I’d like you to drink this glass of water if you could while I talk’
‘Would you mind just drinking that, James?’ he asked, much to the amusement of the giggling audience.
Then, peering down the camera lens, he added: ‘I’d just like to say all the opinions expressed by me tonight are mine and not those of the Packer family.’
In 2004, Sophie Monk made headlines when she passed out on the red carpet and had to be carried out of the event.

Last year, Sophie revealed the seeds of the incident were sewn when she realised she was ‘too big’ for her dress.
‘It was my own fault,’ she said. ‘I was a little too big for the dress and they couldn’t zip it up. So, they said, “Just go in the sauna and come out every 15 minutes, and do that for a while.” But, they didn’t tell me to drink water.’
Sophie added that the worst thing about her collapse was that is distracted from the winners at that year’s ceremony.
‘We look like Nicole and Tom… only reversed!’ In 2006, US comedian Joan Rivers took to the stage with Today’s entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins, and appeared to be in very high spirits indeed
It’s not just Australian celebrities who have caused controversy at the Logies, as many international stars have also made headlines over the years.
In 2006, U.S. comedian Joan Rivers took to the stage with Today’s entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins and appeared to be in very high spirits indeed.
‘We look like Nicole and Tom… only reversed!’ she said after being handed the microphone.
She continued to make further jokes about former Hollywood couple Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise before barking, ‘Grow up, Australia!’, in a bid to liven up the crowd.
When Richard tried to intervene, the Fashion Police star snapped back: ‘Call me Ms Rivers, like you do in the United States’.
She then gestured towards the audience, saying: ‘They don’t know who the s**t I am’.
