Sunday night was the 59th annual TV WEEK Logies, and the true stars of the night were undoubtedly the Johnson siblings.

Nominated for both the Gold Logie as well as Best Actor for his role in Channel Seven's docudrama miniseries "Molly", Samuel Johnson took home both trophies, making sure to dedicate the first to his sister Connie.

Diagnosed with terminal cancer, Connie has worked with Samuel on the charity Love Your Sister where they have been spreading awareness, and providing support for families who have been affected by cancer.

During his first speech, he mentioned Connie's efforts to break a world record for longest line of coins, asking for donations and support on their website which soon crashed due to a massive spike in traffic.

Sharing a video to the Love Your Sister Facebook page, Connie sat with her fingers crossed, crowded around a phone (the TV was broken), watching Samuel accept the Best Actor award. The screams of joy were soon hushed as her brother took the stage to dedicate his first award of the night to Connie, and to their cause.

But the celebrations didn't stop there as later in the evening Samuel took home the biggest award of the night, the Gold Logie.
