Helix’s “Lifeguards” Takes Best Picture At The Str8UpGayPorn Awards [Complete List Of Winners]

Posted June 22, 2017 by with 43 comments

IMG_3996I’ll have a full photo gallery of the red carpet and Str8UpGayPorn Awards ceremony coming soon, but first, here are all the winners from the show, along with a couple photos I took after the show. (I didn’t have time to do photos during the show, but don’t worry, we have a real photographer with real photos of everything coming up. And, if you missed the live stream earlier, the show was recorded so I have that coming, too.) Above, it’s Sean Cody’s Brandon (probably one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met, tbh) and Liam Riley.

Winners of the night were Helix (they took the Best Picture prize for “Lifeguards”), CockyBoys, GuysInSweatpants, Ryan Rose, Carter Dane, Blake Mitchell, Brent Corrigan, Sean Ford, Johnny Rapid, Levi Karter, Mickey Knox, Colby Chambers, Evan Parker and Tyler Hill, Boomer Banks, Chi Chi LaRue, Bruce Beckham, and Austin Wilde (he won the most of the awards of the night: Best Body, Best Duo, Best All-Sex Studio). The one surprise of the night was probably FraternityX’s win for Best Group Scene (“Grab Him By The Mussy.”). Winners are noted in bold.

  • WhimsyCotton

    Very funny. Now where are the real winners. Don’t worry, I can wait. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6ca66bfb948c980e032dfc386095b33614acfe286a269ad8450916445b761a0a.gif

    • Maximus

      You know you’re Mariah Carey when you’re willing to risk drinking red wine on an airplane while wearing an all-white ostrich feather coat because you can easily afford a new one if it gets stained.

  • Scrapple

    I hope someone sends Teo a picture of his award.

    • sanfv

      Already sent!

      • Scrapple

        That’s nice of you. And I’m sure you took the picture and gayed it up with rainbows, glitter stickers, crude dick drawings and a picture of Donald Burns dragging an unidentified piece of ass to a car dealership.

        • sanfv

          I had a gift card from Joanne’s and a free Friday night, can you really blame me?

          I also drew a trump wall- just to scare him , cuz it’s been 2ish years and no body knows if he’s being deported or not.

          • Scrapple

            That’s nice. He can use the gift card to buy a throw pillow and repurpose it as a fuck pillow. They say the first thing you lose in prison is your arch support. Followed by your dignity.

            I thought that part had been settled. At the rate we’re going, deportation might not be such a bad thing.

  • jimboivyo

    Honestly Zach, you should be very proud. This awards show left them all in the dust. Even with a few minor glitches, it recovered with professionalism which reflects the hard work and planning which you and your team invested in this production. It truly was everything and more.

    Well done, Sir!

    • James Johnson III

      I wholeheartedly agree. Glitches (which, for a first year, are certainly to be expected) aside, the entire show was brisk, lively, and entertaining. Well done to all involved. My one gripe: Not enough shirtlessness but I’m sure that will be rectified by next year. Again, congratulations on a successful night!

      • jimboivyo

        keeping a show like this moving, with video, presenters, winners, etc., is no small task. Especially when people are partying and having a good time. This was a sleek, sophisticated and well produced program.

        I hope Zach’s getting his groove on right about now.

  • James Johnson III

    This is just the post I need. Now I can watch all of the nominees/winners and not have to remember who they all were. Awesome

  • Hari Kalyan

    i dont remember the newsmaker category present on the live stream? was it?

    • in • vizi • bro

      There were a few minutes where the livestream dropped all together; for me that was before the viewers pick for best couple was announced… so I’m assuming it happened around there

  • edginghours

    “Grab Him By The Mussy” (Models Unidentified—Fraternity X)


    • Scrapple

      Evil Ryan was sooo sexy.

    • Joey

      Omg lol ikr?

      The ~upset of the night.

    • Birdy65


  • Dazzer

    I’m drunk.

    The “live-feed” hasn’t worked at all. I couldn’t be there – even in spirit.

    I don’t think the prizes given out represent the ethos of St8UpGayPorn’s readership.

    To be honest, I’m depressed.

    I’m depressed and I’m going to bed

  • sanfv

    Amazon night and award shown Zach henny.

    Two things though.

    1) Sean Ford in a transformers, dark of the moon t shirt burned my eyes a little.

    2) who ever is giving Sandra her testostorne injections is pumping her with horse hormones, it seems

    *couldnt resist throwing shade*

    • Scrapple

      Was it Dark of the Moon or The Last Knight? Either way, I’m applauding his master plan to use Moschino and Transformers to throw shade at Helix like “I didn’t age out, I peaced out! Bitch!”

      • sanfv

        I had someone inception into my mind to erase all memories of The Last Knight-thanks for bringing them back.

        Sean threw massive shade, yasss! And to believe he was going to “age out ”

        And here I thought he was going to go to college , but alas, poverty reminded him that working for Starbucks is just too much of hassle.

        • Scrapple

          Well a life change was needed because something has to keep the young master in ear studs, neck chains and designer tees. Selling ombre frappes ain’t gonna do it.

    • Maximus

      I’m disappointed in Moschino for sullying its brand by collabing with the Transformer movie franchise, which, by the way, needed to die four movies ago.

      • Jon

        Moschino has no brand to sully, they’re pretty bottom of the barrel themselves with those hideous Jeremy Scott designs.

  • Donald Horn

    I’m laughing my ass off at Johnny Rapid’s win. Was he there to receive his award or was he at a bowling alley trying to set up a three way with an underaged girl? The world may never know…

    • Luis Iván Román Valero

      I know… WTF?????? If he is straight I’m fucking Britney Spears man! I can’t even!

  • Pertinax

    Day will come when pornography will be recognized as intangible cultural heritage of humanity.


  • jimboivyo

    And not a single mention from QMN blog on the biggest night in the industry! Zach brought the fierceness and they now finally realize who the queen bee finally is!

  • ChuckyFromKentucky

    Blake Mitchell loves dick so much,but yet he claims to be ”bisexual” just because he’s another self hating gay begging for his father’s acceptance

    • jimboivyo

      The box you live in must be quite small and without ventilation.

    • Maximus

      You know, it is possible to both love dick AND love lady parts. Not all bisexuals are just homosexuals who are in denial and/or trying to save face.

  • Maximus

    I love the trophy design, Zach. Very sleek and sexy, something that any homosexual would be proud to display in his living room or home office. At the same time, it looks like something that would shatter if a jilted lover or malicious ex-business partner tried to use it as a murder weapon, which is very socially conscientious of you.


    • Scrapple

      Can you imagine if one of these porn models attacks his partner with that award and then Zach has to report on the incident and the eventual court proceedings? Talk about awkward.

  • DPS

    I gave up on the live stream, drop after drop. Very disappointing but thank you Zach for providing one for those who could view. Looking fwd to the replay (I think?)

  • trex

    How do you give an award to a website-Guysinsweatpants-that doesn’t update its site for almost 6 months, with no notice or explanation to its paying members? Seriously, how?

    • Logan Fisher™

      have a feeling since Austin won 2 awards this is a little lip service because a certain someone really likes him

    • Mike Julius

      Because when they do update, the quality isn’t shit. So rather than churning out excrement for months *cough* Sean Cody *cough*, it had a hiatus and then continued with quality content. GISP deserved that win.

      • WhimsyCotton

        Is it a hiatus if it’s unannounced and provides no explanation to paying customers though?

        • Mike Julius

          hiatus: an interruption in time or continuity : break; especially : a period when something (such as a program or activity) is suspended or interrupted

          No mention of an announcement in the definition from Merriam Webster. Huh.

          • WhimsyCotton

            Well when you’re right, you’re right.

            That said, it still isn’t right for a company to do that to their subscribers.

  • John McKee

    Oh to be a fly on the wall on some of those fuckfests going on last night/this morning.

  • John

    I almost NEVER am pleased with either the nominees or the winners at contests. I was really pleased with the winners this year. I was also pleased that BB and international entries were allowed. Much better than the Grabby’s. Congrats on a success! I was especially pleased the Austin Wilde and his studio got recognition! John

  • Logan Fisher™

    A Str8UpGayPorn award for Best Actor to Ryan Rose (this is SHOCKING!!!) never could have guessed that in a million years LOL (sarcasm). Hmm being a “lifeguard” myself I don’t know if we just stand or sit around & just look good & not actually get wet & do some actual lifeguarding LOL not exactly a very accurate depiction but whatever floats your boat, the sex is kinda blah too.
