John Farnham was nominated for both 'Two Strong Hearts' and 'Age of Reason' in the Best Music Video category at the 31st TV Week Logie Awards in 1989.

He wins the Logie for 'Age of Reason', but accidentally makes his acceptance speech about the 'Two Strong Hearts' video instead, before pressing the reset button in a very funny but endearing Logies moment with Bert Newton. The production crew keep pace with the blunder and manage to cross to those people Farnham acknowledges in his success.

Also of note is that John won this award over Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan's duet 'Especially For You', which shows the depth of his popularity in Australia in the late 1980s.
