Carrie Bickmore TV Career
Bickmore debuted on television in 2006 with the variety show Rove Live, where she hosted the “Carrie @ the News Desk” part for each episode. The news articles were frequently based on true events, but the punchline was always a surprise. Bickmore’s unusual openings, in which she inserted a remark, typically playing off social trends, music, and current culture, were a running gag throughout the segment: “Good evening, everyone. Carrie Bickmore here, and don’t you wish your partner was as attractive as I am?” Bickmore returns to the show in 2007 with a larger role.
Since 2009, Bickmore has been a presenter on Network Ten’s The Project, which airs weeknights and has helped to raise her status as a television host. For her performance on Rove and The Project, Bickmore won the 2010 Logie Award for Best New Female Talent on May 2, 2010. The Drum’s editor, Jonathan Green, and officials from the Australian coffee industry chastised Bickmore in December 2010 for pushing McDonald’s in a piece for The Oprah Winfrey Show, which McDonald’s claimed was paid promotion.
Following the loss of her spouse, Bickmore returned to The 7PM Project after a hiatus of several months. In 2012 and 2013, Bickmore was nominated for the Gold Logie Award for Most Popular TV Personality. Bickmore was nominated for the award again in 2014, prompting the media to dub her “the golden girl” of Network Ten alongside Asher Keddie. In 2013, it was revealed that Bickmore would star alongside former American Idol judge Paula Abdul in a reimagined edition of So You Think You Can Dance Australia for Network Ten. Bickmore earned the Gold Logie award in 2015. During her victory speech, she wore a beanie to raise awareness for her late husband’s battle with brain cancer, and she encouraged her peers to do the same, citing her husband’s anxieties about his scars and the use of beanies to hide them as the inspiration for the symbol. She then created Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer in November 2015, with the goal of raising $4,200,000 for brain cancer research, which she accomplished two months later in January 2016.
