‘I just heard a flock of cockatoos in my lounge room, then realised it was only Julia Morris,’ tweeted one.

‘Julia Morris hosting the Logies is just not helping the rankings along with her “humour”. Quite sarcastically in her opening monologue she’s criticising Twitter and now I’ve come here to criticise her,’ said one other.

The 54-year-old also upset a couple of folks for jokes about her gender identity.

‘For everyone watching at home, don’t adjust your television sets. I do discover as a girl,’ she said.

‘The deal was I could open the show just so long as I dressed like a person.’

The joke upset one viewer, who tweeted: ‘Were the “jokes” about gender identity really essential during Pride month?’

‘Totally agree,’ responded one other person, while one wrote: ‘That was so on the nose, did someone log out on this or…?’

Despite the vitriol on social media, there was also a handful of fans who enjoyed Julia’s monologue.

‘A number of people bagging #JuliaMorris on the #Logies2022 but you’ve got to ask, “Who’s brave enough to open this gig?”‘ asked one.

‘Truthfully, I’d watch Julia Morris do absolutely anything,’ gushed one other.

‘Love Julia Morris. So funny. Hope she wins the Gold Logie. I voted for her. Go Julia,’ tweeted one admirer.

Julia’s 10-minute opener spanned numerous topics, including cancel culture.

‘I just don’t need to get cancelled!’ she told the audience. ‘Cancelled appears like it hurts to me.’

She then screeched: ‘Shout out within the room when you’ve been cancelled!

‘Cancelled is just not that bad when you’re here within the room. You are here on the Logies. I feel it’s all excellent news, guys.’

She also made fun of her salary by bringing up the gender pay gap.

‘It’s totally good that the Logies team hasn’t just gone with one other wealthy white man opening the show,’ she said.

‘They’ve gone for a thirty per cent-less wealthy white woman!’ she added.

On a more serious note, she said: ‘We’re finally talking about this wage disparity between men and girls. I feel it is time. Am I right?’ 

Her statement was met with rapturous applause form the audience.
