2008 Grabby Noms
The 2008 Grabby nominations have been leaked to TheSword.com. Like Bette Milder, The Grabbys got their start in a bathhouse, but they’ve since moved on to tonier digs. Dubbed the “People’s Choice” of gay porn awards, the Grabbys used to differentiate themselves from the GAYVNs by being the “fan-oriented” one as it was open to the public (although both events are now open to the public and since neither allows fans to vote, the metaphor sort of falls apart.)
Grabby categories and noms are a tad less tedious than the GAYVNs, although they are by no means free from the absurd (“Hottest Bottom” always makes me chuckle), or free from controversy; Michael Lucas’ lack of screener submissions led to his movies being omitted for the consideration in the awards.
More shocking perhaps is the fact that my star-turn in Falcon’s Dare has been overlooked for Best Non-Sexual Performance yet again. (Was I THAT bad? OK, please don’t answer that).
