2008 gay porn awards

Here’s the blow-by-blow of the evening …(Somewhat more coherent coverage on The Sword, and Fleshbot.)

Roma & Phil St John are early arrivals.

Tables set …

Empty red carpet

Roma & friend await hordes

(l-to-r) Johnathan Vargas, Jason Ridge, Damien Crosse arrive.

Derek & Romaine arrive … but don’t punch Mike in the face (sadly.)

David Forrest

Paul Baresi

Lou Cass, who murdered me in “Dare”

Antonio Madera, Chad Donovan, Chris Steele

Chi Chi opens the show, reading Lady Bunny in that way drag queens love to dog each other

Lady Bunny makes a bunch of fart jokes.

When they announce Derek & Romaine, they bring out two actual houseplants and call Mike a “bad asshole”. Then the real D&R take the stage.

Romaine is obsessed! She keeps dogging Stabile.

Aden & Jordan Jaric are first trophy boys of the night.

Blake Riley wins first award of the night: Newcomer of the Year

Ricky Sinz wins best solo scene

Hall of Fame… Always most boring time of evening (Paul Barresi being inducted here).

Tiger Tyson is also inducted to the Hall of Fame. Isn’t he like, too young or something?

NakedSword’s Tim Valenti accepting his special achievement award

Ricky Sinz & Christian Cruz tie for supporting actor, fight over statuette.

Best Sex Comedy Goes To Lucas’ “The Intern”

Jake Deckard wins Performer of the Year

Ben Leon &Chris Ward win best director & best picture for GRUNTS

“Rehab” plays as crowd shuffles out

    Great pictures of the event, guys! It makes me feel like I was living last night all over again…

    Blake is a cutie, he’s hot and has a big ‘hug’ factor. I’m glad he won


  3. Critical Eye February 17th, 2008 at 9:55 PM

    Vargas is the hottest looking and the cutest too


  4. Javilicious February 17th, 2008 at 10:02 PM

    Paul Barrisi’s suit!?! He looks like he should be selling used Cadillacs afterwards.


  5. Critical Eye February 17th, 2008 at 10:04 PM

    Ahhh the Gran Damne’


  7. Critical Eye February 17th, 2008 at 10:07 PM

    Hello, life time achievement and TT? What’s this all about?


  8. lighthouse February 17th, 2008 at 10:08 PM

    TT=Tiger Tyson.I am very happy for him to win Lifetime Achievement, Congrats!!!!


  9. Mr Sarcasticus February 18th, 2008 at 1:09 AM

    What has Tyger Tyson done to deserve a LIFETIME achievement award (other than the obvious reason)?

    I can think of at least a dozen others that deserve it before him.


  10. Critical Eye February 18th, 2008 at 1:41 AM

    but the guy hardly has had a life…there are so many others, TT can be hot and sexy certainly in his very first movies but a life time achievement, hello?


  11. ttboy February 18th, 2008 at 2:39 PM

    You guy! Who cares about TT — what about the fact that Paul Baresi was inducted into the Hall of Fame?! He’s only ever directed CRAP.


  12. Ricci February 18th, 2008 at 2:45 PM

    I’m disappointed both eddie diaz nor tommy blade didn’t get an award : i’m a sucker for their porn skills


  13. Salami Joe February 18th, 2008 at 4:03 PM

    I agree about Bareessi. He’s been whining for years about not winning awards, now maybe he’ll shut up! The fact he’s directing for Falcon only serves to show how low that studio’s quality level has fallen.


  14. chriso February 20th, 2008 at 1:07 PM

    I love that there is a Lifetime Achievement award for porn in the first place. The industry just has more of a skewed perception of itself every year!


  15. Jae February 20th, 2008 at 9:14 PM

    I attended the awards for the first time. It was nice to see some of the porn stars in person. Some look better in person others not so much.

    I was happy to see Rod Barry win a Lifetime Achievement Award. He has always been one of my favorites and he’s still working. Oh, and he’s really handsome.


  16. Chi Chi LaLoo February 22nd, 2008 at 1:20 PM

    ^C’mon, give us a laugh – who looks like shit in person?


  17. tex February 27th, 2008 at 7:22 PM

  18. paul barresi October 15th, 2008 at 12:53 PM

    You jelly beans never pass up an opportunity to talk shit bout me. Wish one of you would only be man enough to say it to my face. Just one, please.
    Paul Barresi
