& # 39; I was about to get out of my chair! & # 39; Matty J remembers how he thought he had won a Logie … but instead sat awkwardly beside the winner
He was nominated last year for The Graham Kennedy Award for Most Popular New Talent at the Logie Awards, but lost the comedian Dilruk Jayasinha.
And Matty & # 39; J & # 39; Johnson has now announced that he thought he would win the coveted trophy and he was almost caught on camera and left his seat in front of the podium.
Speak up Nova FM & # 39; s breakfast show on Saturday, the bachelor star, 31, from a hot tip from Osher Gunsberg during the ceremony confronted him with extreme red.
Awkward! Matty Johnson announced that he thought he would win a Logie last year and was almost caught on camera and left his seat in front of the stage (pictured with fiancee Laura Byrne at last year's awards)
Matty revealed that bachelor coach Osher explained to him that it is easy to say who won his category because the cameras position themselves for that person.
He said: & # 39; I was nominated there and I think it was Osher who came to me, clearly my first accommodation, I was very green. & # 39;
& # 39; He went, & # 39; hey Matt, I'll give you a little hint, if your category is named, you know if you're the winner, because they'll have a camera crew with you and start filming you when they start calling out the nominees. "& # 39;
Oops: Speaking of the Nova FM breakfast show, the Bachelor star said he was embarrassed when he realized that camera crews were actually filming the winner Dilruk Jayasinha sitting next to him
Matty explained that he and Dilruk had sat side by side at the awards and both were nominated for the same category.
& # 39; When they started writing names, a camera crew came straight up, a light shone in my face and started filming me & # 39 ;, Matty told his radio co-hosts.
His fiancé Laura Byrne sat on the other side of him during the ceremony and Matt revealed: & I praised Laura and I said, "baby, I think I'm going to win." & # 39;
Nominee: Matty was nominated in 2018 for Most Popular New Talent at the Logie Awards after his appearance on The Bachelor in 2017
& # 39; I had no speech, nothing was planned, suddenly my nerves just touched me, I started to shake, & # 39; I will thank my mother, I will thank Channel Ten & # 39 ;, I was literally about to step out of my chair and walk up and it was Dilruk, Dilruk had won, & he confessed.
Matty claimed that he & # 39; so close & # 39; was to record a Logie, while radio presenter Matt De Groot remained amused and told his friend that it was & # 39; amazing & # 39; would have been if he had risen and started his way to the podium.
Reality star Matty & # 39; s confession comes as Australia's TV stars prepare for this year's Logie Awards taking place on Sunday at The Star on the Gold Coast.
