Neighbors star Ryan Moloney has weighed in on the minimal attention to the cast at the Logie Awards after 37 years of production.
On Sunday, actors Daniel MacPherson and Natalie Bassingthwaighte presented the Most Popular New Talent Award, recognizing the legacy of star discovery, with a montage of soap operas.
But the audience didn’t get a chance to give the cast a standing ovation by not getting them on stage.
Speaking to Hughesy, Ed and Erin of 2Day FM, Moloney said: “We got there, and we did our obligatory three hours talking to people on the red carpet. When we got to the room we were eventually split up and stuck on two different tables, it was awful!
“In fact, our table was stuck behind the cameras. We couldn’t even see the stage… So we thought we weren’t going to get a performance then.”
Asked if he felt let down, he replied: “Honestly, that’s incredibly disappointing the package they’ve put together,” Moloney said.
Elsewhere, he continued: “Daniel (MacPherson) and Nat (Bassingthwaighte) are just absolutely wonderful people and absolutely nothing against them, but we have people who have been on TV for almost 30 years each, and I think the least they can probably do is let’s say something…I mean we’re in the fucking Hall of Fame that’s not how you treat a show that’s in the Hall of Fame I mean good luck to the Logically really,” he said.
