The NewNowNext Kids On The Block

Last night, LOGO held its inaugural NewNowNext Awards at MTV Studios in Times Square, NYC where a bunch of really fun awards were handed out to some very deserving folks. An academy of voters made up of editors from national gay weeklies and newspapers, artistic directors of gay film festivals, musicians and bloggers voted for the recipients for the on-air component of the NewNowNext Awards which were handed out at the ceremony last night. Here are a few pics from the award show red carpet:

I'm very proud to announce that my boo David Hauslaib's blog Queerty.com was nominated in the TOTALLY MOST RAD SICKEST BLOG EVER category along with my good friend Andy Towle's blog Towleroad.com. Unfortch, they both lost the award to Michael K, who writes the devilishly hilarious DListed.com -- who deserves much love and congrats for the win. Christian Siriano won the NewNowNext Award for MOST ADDICTIVE REALITY STAR, Leona Lewis won the KYLIE AWARD: NEXT INTERNATIONAL CROSSOVER and my favorite thing on Earth EVER Planet Unicorn won the OMFG INTERNET AWARD. Other nominees for these awards include Cheyenne Jackson (Sonny Malone in Xanadu), Xanadu itself, Torchwood and Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt from The Hills. The online awards (which can still be voted for HERE) will be announced simultaneously during the on-air premiere Saturday, June 7, 2008 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on LOGO. This awards show sounds really fun and I love that the categories are whimsical and not at all serious by any means. Congrats to all the winners and make sure you tune in on June 7th to see who else will walk away with one of the first NewNowNext Awards. [Source]
