4. When Kitty Flanagan ripped into her waiter-like outfit.

"I’m not actually wait staff. But table 47, yes, Ita, I will bring you one more round of Jäger bombs and then I’m cutting you off. It’s a long night, pace yourself woman, pace yourself.”

"I’m not actually wait staff. But table 47, yes, Ita, I will bring you one more round of Jäger bombs and then I’m cutting you off. It’s a long night, pace yourself woman, pace yourself.”

5. And when she took a dig at the copious amount of cooking shows on Aussie TV.

Nine Network

"It's pretty easy to get in. I keep seeing all these people on MasterChef, My Kitchen Rules. 'Cooking has always been my dream'. I wish someone told them about TAFE. Obviously TAFE is a little bit different. You will learn to cook with ingredients and utensils rather than 'cooking with your heart'. You will also learn to put food on the plate rather than 'putting yourself on the plate'."

6. Or better yet when everyone took a dig at the 60 Minutes crew.

15. When Tim Minchin called out the "get over it" attitude some Australians have.

Nine Network

“I think it’s incredibly important we keep telling the story of the true history of Australia. It’s extremely complicated and painful and it’s hard to know how to tell a story respectfully and how to make sure we amplify the right voices, but I do know that ‘let’s get over it and move on’ doesn’t cut it and never has in any culture in the history of the world.”

22. And when Waleed won the Gold and explained why it was so important that he did.

Nine Network

"Me being here, right now, really matters to them, and it matters to them for a particular reason, and that reason was brought home when someone who is in this room, and I’m not going to use the name they use in the industry, came up to me and introduced themselves and said to me, ‘I really hope you win, my names Mustafa, but I can’t use that name because I won’t get a job.’ He’s here tonight. And it matters to people like that that I’m here.”
