2015 Cybersocket Awards: Who Will Win, Who Should Win, And Who Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell
Here we go again. It’s an annual tradition for me to try and predict the basically unpredictable Cybersocket Award winners, so let’s get to it. The winners are usually based on a combination of two things: 1. Which studio spent the most money buying ads in Cybersocket magazine, and 2. Which performer/studio actually got the most fan votes.
Sometimes the wins are legit, and sometimes they make absolutely no sense. And sometimes, even the nominations make zero sense, as Colby Keller, Tommy Defendi, Austin Wilde, and even Paddy O’Brian were all snubbed this year.
That said, the Cybersockets are always a fun event, and it’s a great opportunity for a bunch of insane people to get together and get blackout drunk (myself included). Follow Str8UpGayPorn on Twitter tomorrow night for drunk tweets from the show until either I or my phone dies.
As I say every year: I’m usually about 99% wrong, so keep that in mind. “Who Will Win” is based on who I really think will win; “Who Should Win” is who I think is most deserving of a win; “No Guts, No Glory” is who I think doesn’t stand a chance in Hell.

Who Will Win: GayHoopla.
Who Should Win: Sketchy Sex. They aren’t necessarily the “best,” but they had a lot of people talking this year (probably for all the wrong reasons).
No Guts, No Glory: Jet Set On Demand. LOL, this now defunct studio hasn’t made a movie in years, so how was their streaming site (featuring ancient content) even nominated? Your guess is as good as mine.

Who Will Win: Has there ever been a category filled entirely with people who didn’t deserve to win? Just kidding! This could go to mr. Pam, but since she’s hosting the show, that might seem like favoritism?
Who Should Win: Sister Roma.
No Guts, No Glory: While it’s a joke that I’m nominated here, it might be an even bigger joke that Chris Crocker and Michael Lucas are, too. Any one of us winning would be embarrassing, and it’ll never happen.

Who Will Win: Ryan Rose or Jake Bass or Jimmy Durano or Boomer Banks. All deserving. And given that all four of them are attending the event, one of them is going to win. (Winners are notified ahead of the event to insure attendance.)
Who Should Win: Ryan Rose. Like him or not, he had the most solid, “busiest” year in gay porn.
No Guts, No Glory: Seth Fornea. He’s never even done gay porn.

Welcome to L.A Randy Blue
Who Will Win: Stepfather’s Secret. Men.com has MindGeek’s money, so they could have picked themselves up an award with this controversial movie, featuring Dirk Caber’s triple-penetration scene. The movie was also a fan favorite, so a win could actually be deserved.
Who Should Win: Answered Prayers. Even though the complete feature hasn’t even been fully released yet, there was no higher quality movie that generated more buzz and acclaim than AP.
No Guts, No Glory: Breeding Marcus Issacs. I dare the Cybersockets to give an award to a studio known for its snuff films.
Abraham Al Malek
Who Will Win: Tayte Hanson. A no-brainer. His fans are insane, and their frenzied voting probably crashed Cybersocket’s website.
Who Should Win: Liam Riley and Colton Grey. Liam Riley was a true breath of fresh air in 2014, and then Colton Grey’s hotness took my breath away. Alternates: Luke Adams and Rocco Steele.
No Guts, No Glory: Hans Wunderkind!
