AWARDS SEASON

Just How Gay Will Logo’s NewNowNext Awards Be? And How Is Willam Up For An Award?

With Logo shifting away from a queer-centric lineup this month, we were curious to see how that would affect the channel’s annual NewNowNext Awards, airing April 9 at 10pm.

Last year saw appearances by Lady Gaga, Robyn and the cast of Bridesmaids. If this year’s lineup of presenters and performers is any indication, it’s a transitional period for the network: Willam, Ross Matthews, Adam Lambert, Perez Hilton and TV personality George Kotsiopoulos definitely fit the three-dollar bill, and you could file Real Housewife Kyle Richards and Cougar Town’s Busy Philipps under “friends of the family.”

But Aisha Tyler? Heather McDonald? And we had to look up Lamorne Morris. (He’s on Fox’s The New Girl.)

The categories are also all over the Kinsey Scale, with Best New Indulgence nominees including AbFab (gay!), Seamless.com (straight!) and Pinterest (ac/dc): and Cause You’re Hot nods are going to Channing Tatum and Henry Cavil (gay!), Naya Rivera (lesbian!) and Novak Djokovic (um, who?).

We’re scratching our head over the Next Must-See Movie picks: Everyone, gay and straight, is gagging to see Avengers, Magic Mike and Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. But Ted, the movie in which Scott McFarlane plays a talking teddy bear?

Did they buy a bunch of ads or something?

We’ll be watching the Most Addictive Reality Star category quite closely: In addition to Mob Wives’ Big Ang and Dance Moms‘ Abby Lee Miller, ousted Drag Race contender Willam got a nomination.

Do NNN producers know something we don’t? (like maybe Willam is the queen coming back on tonight’s episode?)

Damn it, you know we’ll be watching!

      “Did they buy a bunch of ads or something?”

      Hmm – just when I was going to comment they had to pay you to promote this. Perez and Willam. I tell you, my price for watching it would be quite high.

      Meh, don’t watch these made up awards. Actually ONLY watch RuPaul’s shows on Logo, other than that, nothing worth watching on the Bravo/Lifetime mashup channel. One Girl, 5 Gays= cable access dreck.

      I only watch Ru’s show, too, and it certainly wasn’t for Willam. Really – with Sharon Needles practically stealing each show (and certainly heavily featured in every preview online of the next show) with her one-liners, Willam is the “addictive star” of that show? Hardly believable.

      @ Mark-I love Sharon Needles, too, but Willam was definitely a force to be reckoned with on Drag Race. Personally, I hope Willam returns in tonight’s episode of the show; he was egotistical, but that was part of his persona (not to mention, besides Kenya, he was the prettiest and-unlike Kenya- one of the most talented queens on Drag Race this season.)

      @Frederick: Oh Kenya is coming back you could predict from the letter segment in UnTucked. You know, when she was eliminated and wrote a letter to the remaining queens that PhiPhi read. Very critical of everybody but PhiPhi. I’d be shocked if it was anybody but.

      From what I understand, Willam was DISQUALIFIED, which means he CANNOT win. I think Kenya will return. Wish it was Alissa Summers. We barely got to see her (and he looked HOT as a boy!)
