Fan backlash against Grant Denyer after he beats industry veterans to take home ...

Grant Denyer delivered an emotional and poignant speech after he scooped the Gold Logie at Sunday night's Logie Awards at The Star Gold Coast.

And while the Family Feud host, 40, was brought to tears by the honour, some viewers believed he was an undeserving recipient.

Several fans suggested on Twitter that Australian TV's top honour should not have been presented to a bubbly game show presenter.

'Why did @grantdenyer [win]? I'm sorry but there were others more deserving of the Gold Logie,' one social media user fumed.

'Grant Denyer was simply axed because he couldn't pull the ratings through... I'M OUTRAGED.'

Another viewer tweeted, 'Grant Denyer winning the Gold Logie for a show that no longer exists',  alongside the crying with laughter emoji.

Grant hosted Family Feud for four years before it was cancelled by Network Ten earlier this year.
