Amanda Keller has opened up about being snubbed in this year’s Gold Logie Award nominations.

The Living Room presenter – who was nominated the last two years – admitted on her WSFM’s Jonesy and Amanda radio show, the results sparked ‘an interesting spread of emotions’.

‘So the last two Logies, I was up for the Gold and it’s hard yakka having to spruik yourself. It’s such an accolade, I was so proud to be nominated,’ Amanda, 60, said.

‘I took it very seriously. It’s an important part of Australian television history, to be nominated meant the world to me.’

Amanda admitted the last Logies campaign was ‘really hard’, because of the competition between herself and Tom Gleeson, who won the Gold Logie in 2019.

‘He had a comedy routine about it, the trope was, ‘this is meaningless, but I’m going to rort the system’, and he kind of sledged it along the way,’ she explained.

‘So normally, (nominees) just run their own race but I wasn’t capable of running my own race because that narrative was picked up by the press, and it became ‘Tom versus me.’
