Logo Announces Nominees For The 2012 "NewNowNext Awards"

Online Voting Begins Today on NewNowNext.com

Winners Revealed on the Fifth Annual "NewNowNext Awards" Telecast Premiering Monday, April 9th at 10/9C on Logo

NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2012 -- Logo, today announced the nominees for the 2012 "NewNowNext Awards." Now in its fifth year, this highly praised and always unpredictable telecast continues to go beyond where traditional award shows dare to go as it showcases who and what are on the verge of a pop culture explosion in 2012. The "NewNowNext Awards" will gather icons, trendsetters as well as stars-on-the-rise to uncover what's hot in TV, music, film and fashion long before they hit the mainstream.

Starting today, February 27, the public is invited to visit NewNowNext.com or m.newnownext.com/awards to view the entire list of nominees and cast their votes across a wide range of outrageous categories including "Cause You're Hot," "Beyond Style," and "TV You Betta Watch." Additionally, users can vote for the NewNowNext Awards nominees on Twitter by including the nominee name and the hashtag #NNNAwards in their tweet. Nominees for the "NewNowNext Awards" were chosen by the "NewNowNext Academy" - a mix of tastemakers from various creative industries across the country.

Winners will be revealed Monday, April 9th at 10/9C, on Logo's "NewNowNext Awards" 2012 show. The 90-minute special will be taped in front of a live audience of today's hottest emerging and seasoned artists at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA on April 5th. Performers, presenters and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.

Logo's "NewNowNext Awards" have earned a reputation for breaking new ground in pop culture. Lady Gaga gave her first televised performance at the show, Rooney Mara was a nominee well before an Oscar Nominee, Wendy Williams was handed "Guiltiest Pleasure" before she was handed her own talk show, and the cast of Bridesmaids made their first televised appearance together at the 2011 show.

The "NewNowNext Awards" builds on Logo's acclaimed NewNowNext franchise, which includes Logo-owned pop culture and lifestyle blog NewNowNext.com and on-air music video show "NewNowNext." On air, "NewNowNext" is the home of indie pop artists you need to hear, as well as style, travel and entertainment segments from companion website.
