Another blow for the Gold Coast, with a major event called off due to the coronavirus crisis.
The 2020 TV WEEK Logie Awards – which were due to be held at The Star in June – have now officially been cancelled, with organisers abandoning alternate options to go ahead with the event.
They’ve now decided to call the whole awards event off this year, and work on making next year’s ceremony bigger and better.

It’s the first time in over 60 years that the event has been cancelled, though the 2021 show will still be held on the Gold Coast.
“All parties agree the most positive outcome is to not hold the TV WEEK Logies, including public voting, in 2020, but to stage an even bigger event on the Gold Coast in 2021,” said Fiona Connolly from Bauer Media.
“The TV WEEK Logies is loved because it is a live event, with viewers at home enjoying seeing the red-carpet glamour and the entertainment community coming together to celebrate the television industry.
“We would like to thank Queensland for being a wonderful Logies host and partner in delivering this event over the past two years and we cannot wait to return to The Star Gold Coast next year.
“While we are postponing the TV WEEK Logie Awards for 2020 and returning in 2021, the 2021 Logies will be an epic event that will take into consideration the 12 months of television just past, as well as all programs that will air for the remainder of this year,” Ms Connolly said.
