Dave Hughesâ€™ opening Logies speech was peppered with awkward â€˜oooâ€™s from the audience after he bridged some rather controversial topics.
One that truly divided the crowd was his handling of Grant Hackett.
Addressing the embattled swimming starâ€™s recent troubles, Hughes said, â€œGrant Hackett, â€˜Oh Iâ€™m going to rehab againâ€™, well listen this time, right!â€
â€œI love Grant Hackett, heâ€™s a great Australian but heâ€™s being a bit whingey.
â€œDid you see on Instagram he put a selfie of himself with a black eye and said, â€˜look what my brother didâ€™. Thatâ€™s what brothers do Grant, you bloody be a d**k and they give you a clip!”
