Grabbys Predictions Part 2: Who Will Win, Who Should Win, And Who Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell

Posted May 21, 2015 by with 8 comments

GrabbyAd2015The 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 is in Chicago with live, 24/7 coverage through Monday (I apologize in advance for all the drunk tweets), and here is Part 2 of my annual predictions for who will win, who should win, and who doesn’t stand a chance in hell. (Part 1 is here.)

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.

Luke Adams
Jay B
Blue Bailey
Jake Bass
David Benjamin
Hans Berlin
Duncan Black
Brenner Bolton
Brent Corrigan
Mike De Marko
Seven Dixon
Sean Duran
Jimmy Fanz
Darius Ferdynand
Alexander Gustavo
Jesse Jackman
Killian James
Brandon Jones
JD Phoenix
Johnny Rapid
Liam Riley
Armond Rizzo
Andy Taylor
Johnny V
Sean Zevran

Will Win: Jimmy Fanz or Armond Rizzo
Should Win: Brenner Bolton
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Jay B

As with every Grabbys category, there are simply way too many nominees here, but Brenner, Armond, and Jimmy are definitely worthy of their noms. Of course, wouldn’t the nomination feel more special if you were one of just five nominees (or even 10)? Instead, there are 25! Absurd. Also, who in the fuck is Jay B?

Dalton Briggs

Dmitry Dickov
Alexander Greene
Tayte Hanson
Dylan Knight
Sebastian Kross

Dean Monroe
Valentin Petrov
James Ryder
Rocco Steele
Tyson Tyler
Jarec Wentworth
Christian Wilde
Sean Zevran

Will Win: Rocco Steele and Dalton Briggs
Should Win: Dmitry Dickov and Rocco Steele
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Jarec Wentworth

As hilarious as it would be to hear Jarec’s name called, it’s not happening. If the Grabbys select one cut and one uncut cock, I predict Rocco and Dalton, which would be great. Watch out for Dmitry Dickov though, whom I’m rooting for.

Hans Berlin
Paul Canon
Colby Chambers
Dmitry Dickov
Jimmy Fanz
Tyler Hanson
Colby Jansen
Adam Killian
Mikey Knox
Damien Kyle
Paddy O’Brien
Johnny Rapid
Billy Santoro
Andrew Star
Tyler St. James
Kevin Warhol
Austin Wilde

Will Win: Austin Wilde
Should Win: Austin Wilde
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Tyler St. James

Given that literally every gay porn star is a web performer, I have no idea what this award is supposed to signify, other than another chance for the Grabbys to roll out a long list of names? With that said, the success of Austin’s studio should secure him a win. If you’re wondering who in the world Tyler St. James is, join the club. He did eight scenes for Men.com, the last of which was released in 2012! I can’t.

Do people other than bloggers care about this award? I doubt it, which is why I left my predictions off. That being said, anyone who reads porn blogs should have a pretty clear idea as to who deserves this award…

Should Win: Johnny Rapid and Dirk Caber in Stepfather’s Secret
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Vance Crawford and Bryce Evans in So You Think You Can Fuck 4

I haven’t even seen it, but based on what commenters have said, that Vance Crawford/Bryce Evans scene was one of the worst things released in 2014. As far my “should win,” Stepfather’s Secret was actually pretty good (for a Men.com scene), and it at least deserves to win here. But, Dirty Rascals will likely be shut out of all the other categories, so the Grabbys will want to give NakedSword at least one award, and the Tommy/Dato duo is deserving.

Will Win: Jake Jaxson
Should Win: Jake Jaxson
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Dominic Ford

It’s true that Jake Jaxson won this award in 2013 for Project GoGo Boy, but that won’t stop the Grabbys from awarding him again, for an even more ambitious and more beloved movie.

Will Win: Answered Prayers
Should Win: Answered Prayers
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Gay Of Thrones

Gay Of Thrones is my personal pick for the worst movie/series released in 2014 (or any year, tbh), and it’s embarrassing that it’s even nominated here. This award will wrap up the sweep for Answered Prayers, if my predictions are right.

Will Win: Ryan Rose and Tommy Defendi (alt: Colby Keller)
Should Win: Ryan Rose, Colby Keller
Doesn’t Stand A Chance In Hell: Jason Phoenix

Remember: The Grabbys always pick two winners in this category. Tommy Defendi has never won a major award like this (he has won Best Cock), and he’s way overdue. Ryan Rose, meanwhile, has had an almost flawless year, with one great performance after another, so he’s pretty much a lock. The one complication? Colby Keller. He was already voted Str8UpGayPorn’s Best Gay Porn Star Of 2014, and he deserves this more than anyone for his epic, 11-year career in gay porn (remember, he started at Sean Cody in 2004). If he sneaks in here (despite not being an exclusive for any studio or having a manager/agent to promote him), it would be a fantastic surprise.

    My picks: Performer Of The Year: Ryan Rose, close second Darius Ferdynand. Best Porn Blog: Str8UpGayPorn. No contest. Damn, I’m glad I really believe this because if I thought another Blog was better, I might be afraid to say so because I know how little Zach likes criticism. LOL

  • Diogenes Veritas

    good luck in the porn blog category zach. my vote would go to you if i had one. would love to read about your win on your twitter but since i’ve been blocked i guess i’ll have to read about it somewhere else. 🙁

  • Nickolas

    Congratulations to Manhunt Daily for winning Best Porn Blog.

  • Todd

    Zach — be sure to get pics with Nica, Jed and Brent if they are there !! Or at least Jason Phoenix, who should have plenty of time for photo opportunities.

  • Dutch Courage

    You gained a lot of weight Zach! Writing about gay porn seems a stressful business ….
    *
    If QueerMeNow wins best blog category I would be very upset. The guy blocked me probably because I wrote some critical things about Michael Lucas.
    *
    CockyBoys is the critics favorite but the middle of the road viewer just shrugs and jacks off to Sean Cody or BelAmi. Porn is not art and if you try to mix the two you get a parody most of the time.
    *
    I see you like bareback porn but the Grabbys is all about safe sex.

  • Garland

    I would say my blog doesn’t stand a chance in hell just because I’m the baby of the group, only been around since Nov and even though I’ve got over 20,000 readers I’m still finding my footing and what works for my blog. I would be very surprised if I win…..

  • Michael Talerico

    Zach – everyone knows you’re in love with Ryan Rose so anything you say about him is null & void.

  • Cosmic

    Since Rocco is openly poz is it safe to assume anyone he breeds on camera is poz as well?
