Chris Hemsworth solves the case of his missing Logie award from his Home and Away days

It was where?! Chris Hemsworth finally hunts down the missing Logie award he received while starring on Home and Away

Chris Hemsworth has an illustrious acting career decorated with awards, but there has been much mystery surrounding the whereabouts of one particular award. 

The 39-year-old Thor actor’s 2005 Silver Logie for Most Popular Actor went missing during his time as a dreamy soap star on Home and Away. 

It later turned up in his friend Luke Zocchi’s home after going on the strangest journey, Hemsworth told the Daily Telegraph on Thursday.

‘So my Logie, it is funny… I had no idea where it was. My mate [personal trainer] Luke Zocchi, it was at his house,’ the movie star said.

‘It was at my parents house in the toilet at one point. It was in the living room at another mate’s house and then it miraculously turned up recently.’

He went on to reveal the award was now ‘in the toy box for the kids’ and his wife, actor Elsa Pataky, still didn’t understand what it was.

In 2005, Hemsworth also won Most Popular New Talent Male before once again winning Most Popular Actor in 2006. 

The awards honoured his performance as Kim Hyde in Home and Away from 2004 to 2007, which led to his big Hollywood career. 

Most recently, Hemsworth received the Trailblazer Award at the 2022 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards in Sydney on Wednesday night.

Hemsworth beamed as he stepped on stage to receive his award from pal and fellow actor Russell Crowe, with whom he starred in Thor: Love and Thunder.

Crowe, 58, who is the president of the Academy Awards, burst with pride as he watched Hemsworth give his acceptance speech from the side of the stage.

Speaking to red carpet host Angela Bishop ahead of the ceremony, Hemsworth spoke of how he felt after being informed he’d be receiving the Trailblazer Award.

He went on to reveal the award was now 'in the toy box for the kids' and his wife, actor Elsa Pataky, still didn't understand what it was. Pictured: Hemsworth and Pataky with their twin boys Sasha and Tristan

‘I got a text from Russell [Crowe] about it,’ the Bondi hunk explained. ‘And I said, ‘Oh, my God, that’s amazing!’ Then I said, ‘Would you present it to me?’ He said, ‘Absolutely.’ So I’m honoured from every angle.’

It’s the first time the Ghostbusters star has received a prize from the organisation, with his only nomination coming in 2020 for Global Star of the Decade.

The former soap star, who joins previous winners Simon Baker, Isla Fisher and Rose Byrne, said he didn’t take his start in the Australian screen industry for granted.
