The biggest names in Australian television have turned their backs on this year's Gold Logie winner, Tom Gleeson.
In a blistering red carpet interview before Sunday's ceremony, Karl Stefanovic labelled the Hard Quiz host a '24 karat gold tosser'.
Tom, 45, had ruffled plenty of feathers in the lead-up to TV's night of nights by lobbying for votes in a political-style 'dirty' campaign.

When he eventually won the Gold Logie, Tom gloated in his acceptance speech as the bookies' favourite Amanda Keller watched stony-faced in the audience.
He smugly claimed the Logies were a 'joke', before mocking the candidates who had 'sincerely' campaigned for the top industry prize.
Towards the end of his speech, the ABC comedian even said his victory was a win for 'taking the p**s' and 'not giving a s**t'.
When asked for his thoughts on Tom before the ceremony, Karl didn't hold back.
