The 2022 TV WEEK Logies nominees have been announced and, like always, we're celebrating new and emerging Aussie talent.
In 2006, the Graham Kennedy Award for New Talent was introduced to recognise Australia's newest stars who have made their mark in the entertainment industry over the past year.
Up for the Most Popular New Talent Award this year are Matt Evans, Alessandra Rampolla, Carlos Sanson Jr, Melanie Bracewell, Tony Armstrong and Will Lodder.

Matt Evans shot to fame in September last year when he joined the cast of Home and Away.
"It is crazy how much I've learnt. It is like getting paid to go to school. My first day in the studio, I kind of had a bit of a freak out because it's just a lot of people around and I didn't know what I was doing. I'm just trying to learn on the job," he said of his Summer Bay debut.
But the 25-year-old isn't just known for his portrayal of Theo Poulos on the soap. Matt's first foray into television was on The Voice in 2020, where he showed off his singing chops.
