Kylie Wins Best Actress at the 1987 Logies
At the 29th Annual TV Week Logie Awards ceremony, Kylie took home the Most Popular Actress award for her role as Charlene on Neighbours.
This awards footage shows a 19-year-old Kylie at the beginning of her rise to superstardom. It was her role on Neighbours that cast her into the limelight in Australia and the UK, where the soap opera enjoyed phenomenal popularity.
After receiving her award from actress Belinda Giblin and guest presenter Harry Hamlin, Kylie gives a speech that is both brief and humble, in a manner that has become characteristic of the star – even after decades in the spotlight.
The 29th Annual TV Week Logie Awards ceremony was held on 3 April 1987 and broadcast live on Network Ten.
She went on to receive the Gold Logie for Australia's Most Popular Television Performer at the 30th Annual TV Week Logie Awards in 1989.
