Grabbys Predictions Part 1: Who Will Win, Who Should Win, And Who Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell

Posted May 19, 2015 by with 15 comments


The 2015 Grabbys will be held this Saturday, May 23rd at Metro in Chicago, with returning hosts (for the 900 millionth time) Chi Chi LaRue and Honey West. Joining them as co-hosts are Tayte Hanson, Boomer Banks, Billy Santoro, Tommy Defendi, Jimmy Fanz, and Ryan Rose. Str8UpGayPorn will be there with live, 24/7 coverage from Wednesday through Monday (I apologize in advance for all the drunk tweets), and here is Part 1 of my annual predictions for who will win, who should win, and who doesn’t stand a chance in hell. Part 2 is coming later this week.

Like every year, I usually get most of these dead wrong, so please keep that in mind. The Grabbys are known for dividing up the awards as diplomatically and equally as possible, so the only real guarantee to be made is that everyone always wins at least one award. Full list of nominees here.

Rocco Steele
Billy Taylor

Will Win: Tayte Hanson and Sebastian Kross
Should Win: Liam Riley, Tayte Hanson, or Rocco Steele
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Jason Phoenix

Weird how so much can change in a year. At the 2014 Grabbys, Chi Chi LaRue’s model Jason Phoenix was made a Grabbys co-host. This year? He’s fallen off the face of the earth, and he definitely won’t be winning in this category. As far as who will win/should win, this is by far the hardest category to predict. I can guarantee that one of the names called will be a CockyBoy, and I’m leaning toward Tayte Hanson since the Grabbys obviously love him (they made him a co-host). As far as the second name (Best Newcomer always has two winners), it’ll definitely be one of Raging Hot Falcon’s exclusives. But if I had to pick, I’d go with Rocco Steele, as no one has blown up in 2014/2015 like Rocco has.

Best Twink Performer:
Jay Bentley
Killian James
Dylan Knight
Zach Knight
Logan Milano
Jessie Montgomery
Hunter Page
JD Phoenix
Axel Rhodes
Ken Riley
Liam Riley
Tyler Rush
Riley Tanner
Andy Taylor
Ashton Weber

Will Win: Liam Riley
Should Win: Liam Riley
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Jay Bentley and Killian James

If they don’t give Liam the Best Newcomer award, they’ll make up for it here—and it’d be deserved either way. Jay Bentley and Killian James being nominated in this category is one of the oddest things I’ve ever seen the Grabbys do.

originalBest Actor:
Jake Bass / Answered Prayers / Cocky Boys
Dirk Caber / Stepfather’s Secret /
Mike De Marko / Sentenced / Channel 1 Releasing
Joe Gunner / Head Hunting / Kristen Bjorn
Colby Keller / Last Call /
Ryker Madison / Scandal at Helix Academy 2 / Helix Studios
Connor Maguire / Dirty Rascals / Nakedsword
Hunter Marx / Bad Cops / Titan Men
Valentino Medici / The Secret Gift / Kristen Bjorn
Evan Parker / Scandal at Helix Academy 2 / Helix Studios
Nick Prescott / Morning Wood / Titan Men
Rogan Richards / The Tourist / Raging Stallion Studios

Will Win: Connor Maguire or Jake Bass
Should Win: Jake Bass
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Valentino Medici

Jake Bass and the Jake Bass’ character (Jinks) were integral to the success of Answered Prayers, and in a lot of ways he (along with Levi Karter) carried the film. At the same time, Connor Maguire was given a lot of comedic dialogue in Dirty Rascals, which he pulled off quite well. This one’s a true toss-up. Dark Horse to keep an eye on: Dirk Caber. His creepy stepdad routine was incredibly believable, and this might be the Grabbys’ one way to give Men/Mindgeek their first Grabby.

Best Supporting Actor:
Doug Acre / Scandal at Helix Academy 2 / Helix Studios
Abraham Al Malek / The Tourist / Raging Stallion Studios
Levi Carter / Answered Prayers / Cocky Boys
Brent Corrigan / Jacked / Falcon
Tommy Defendi / Dirty Rascals / Nakedsword
Trenton Ducati / Sentenced / Channel 1 Releasing
Jessie Jackman / Sweat / Titan Men
Dean Monroe / Answered Prayers / Cocky Boys
Jason Phoenix / Dirty Lil Brother / Channel 1 Releasing
Ryan Rose / Easy Inn / Falcon

Will Win: Trenton Ducati
Should Win: Levi Karter
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Jason Phoenix

If the Grabbys want to make this an Answered Prayers sweep, they’ll give this to the rightful winner: Levi Karter. But, the Grabbys always like to spread the love, so they’ll probably give this to Trenton Ducati for his work in a Chi Chi LaRue movie.

Am I being too naïve in thinking that the Grabbys will get this one 100% right?

Will Win: Rocco Steele or Boomer Banks
Should Win: Andrew Stark or Diesel Washington
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Topher DiMaggio

Most of the guys in this category are fully versatile, which makes picking a winner almost impossible. When in doubt, go with the biggest dick, right?

Predictions coming later this week: Hottest Bottom, Hottest Cock, Best Movie, Performer Of The Year, and more!

  • sxg

    What’s your reason for Topher not winning hottest top? Has he won it already?

    I’d really like to see hottest top go to either Rocco Steele, Andrew Stark, CutlerX, or Valentin Petrov. I’m not overly fond of the rest of the noms in this category as tops, especially Boomer. My god is he boring to watch as a top! And not only that, he’s not that hot either.

    As far as hottest versatile, I want to see Sean Zevran win that one!

  • Luca

    how irritating is a list of 20 nominees?!

    • Alan

      Not as irritating as 5 co-winners…

  • Taylor
  • Todd

    Too bad there isn’t a Grabby for ‘Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell’

    “And the winner I ……….Jason Phoenix !!”

  • moondoggy

    Colby and Tayte make Baby Jesus cum. I wish they fucked bareback, gawd knows I do.

  • andrew

    My two favorites in the Best Newcomer category are: Sebastian Kross for most beautiful and Tayte Hanson for sexiest performer. Best Versatile: Ryan Rose. Hottest top: Andrew Stark.

  • DPS

    Best vers should go to Sean Zevran! THAT is a performer. Colby is good and with much connection to his partners but Sean just has that certain “you wouldn’t think that I would be like that but I am” factor.

    If these awards were truly credible they would narrow the list to about 4. This is really just gratuitous shit all told.

  • Nickolas

    Are there any scenes with daddy Rocco Steele bottoming? I wouldn’t mind seeing that.

  • John

    How come the best (IMHO) companies, Bel Ami, Sean Cody and Corbin Fisher are not represented? Is it only for condom only stars and for American companies?

    • Zachary Sire

      There are a few exceptions, but for the most part the Grabbys do not nominate anything with bareback.

      • John

        Thanks. The current pool may get smaller in coming years then.

    • Multiverse Inhabitant

      Because they don’t kiss ass.

  • Zealot

    I’m a little confounded by Jason Phoenix. I mean, he’s GOR-JUSS and hung and versatile all all. So, wonder why he isn’t catching on? Don’t know much about him other than the usual studio hype stuff. I’d like to think he’s truly bi and versatile, but he screams “TRADE”!! Maybe he’s met his contractual obligations and decided to call it “quits”. Quite the conundrum.

  • Deli73

    I really hope the models you’ve named are the winners, but as much as I think Jake and Colby deserve awards in their respective categories, they just don’t have the best history at the Grabbys.

    God, the character of Jinks was great though (along with Levi K as Puck)
