CHANNEL 10's golden girl Carrie Bickmore was awarded the Gold Logie tonight.

The Project co-host, who is currently on maternity leave after recently giving birth to her daughter Evie, used her time on stage to raise awareness for brain cancer, the disease took the life of her husband Greg Lange almost five years ago.

"Every five hours someone is diagnosed with brain cancer and eight out of 10 who are diagnosed will die of brain cancer," Bickmore said.

"It kills more people under 40 than any other cancer… no one should have to go through that."

She encouraged her small screen colleagues and the viewing public to wear beanies in support of brain cancer sufferers and their families, to whom she dedicated her Gold Logie.

"Please believe there will be a brighter day for you, please believe that," she said.

Her plea has now gone viral with #beaniesforbraincancer now trending on Twitter.

Bickmore also took home a Silver Logie for Most Popular Presenter.

Fellow Gold Logie nominee and previous winner Asher Keddie won her her sixth straight Silver Logie for Most Popular Actress.

"Even I myself thought it should be someone else's turn this year," she joked.

The awards were broadcast live his year, and presenter Julia Morris made the first slip-up when she forgot to introduce the nominees for Most Outstanding Entertainment Program and jumped straight to the winner, The Voice.

"Why did it have to be me? Why couldn't it happen to someone groovy?" Morris said.

Love Child star and NIDA graduate has been branded as the one to watch on Australian TV after picking up both Most Popular New Talent and the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding Newcomer.

"I wrote a speech because an actor needs a script," Tapsell said when accepting her first award of the evening.

"Thank you to everyone who voted for me, even the ones I'm not related to.

"Put more beautiful people of colour on TV and connect viewers in ways which transcend race and unite us. That's the real team Australia."

While neither of them won gold, Hamish and Andy did win Most Popular Entertainment Program and had one of the funnier moments of the evening when they hosted their own Bachelor-style rose ceremony while presenting the Most Popular Reality Program Award.

Channel 7's long-running soap Home and Away was also inducted into the Logies Hall of Fame.

Ray Meagher, who plays beloved Summer Bay patriarch Alf Stewart, accepted the award on behalf of the cast and crew.

Over the show's 28 years, it and its cast have won a combined 42 Logie Awards.

 "None of those Logies have been more important to us than this one," Meagher said.

Wentworth was another big winners of the night.

The Foxtel drama, set in a women's prison, was named Most Outstanding Drama Series and star Danielle Cormack was named Most Outstanding Actress.

The show is gaining popularity in the US where it was released on Netflix.
