str8upgaypornawardsAs announced last month, the 3rd annual Str8UpGayPorn Awards will return to the Avalon in Hollywood on January 12th, 2020. Over the next few months, there will be several announcements about the awards, and today I have news on all of the categories being presented during the ceremony in January.

For the 3rd annual Str8UpGayPorn Awards, there will be 28 categories (all of which are listed below).

8 categories will be voted on by our returning panel of judges, which includes adult industry members, journalists, writers, film critics, and other gay media professionals.

20 categories will be voted on by fans online. Last year, there were nine categories voted on by fans, but we’ve now moved a majority of the categories into fan voting, giving viewers and fans at home even more of a role in gay porn’s biggest night.

There are 5 new categories being awarded this year, and they are:

Best Screenplay
Scene Of The Year
Favorite Fan Content Creator
Favorite DP Scene
Favorite Series

Here are all 28 categories, beginning with the 8 categories voted on by the judges panel. (Photos used here are from last year’s ceremony.)

    Other than the godly Austin Wilde, I don’t recognize any of the basic bitches in these pics.

    • Happy Camper

      Yeah, it kind of peaked with the first picture of him.

  • Silver64

    So glad you added “Favorite Fan Content Creator” My opinion is that Rhyheim Shabazz should take that one hands down, along with scene of the year with his scene with Sean Zevran. The only problem is that he just released a scene of himself and Cade Maddox tag teaming Sean Zevran, so he’d have 2 scenes, at least, in the running for scene of the year. Even I am hard pressed to put either of those scenes above the other, and then there’s also the 3some he shot with Jay Alexander and Rico Marlon that was beyond belief.

    Gee…can ya tell I’m a Fan? I’ve let some of my other subscriptions run out, but that’ll never happen with Rhyheim.

    Ya know, I just realized that I don’t have any studios I’m subbed to anymore. It’s all JFF, and the content is, for the most part, way better than what the studios release. And for the price of one Studio per month, I can get 2 or 3 JFF pages.

    What I would love to see is that the Fans pages hand the Studios their ass on a plate and take the majority of the Fan Voted Awards. With a few exceptions, it hasn’t been a stellar year in Studio based porn, but that just my opinion.

    Back to Rhyheim tho…even that idiot, BigC, admits that Rhyheim is in a league of his own…

  • Tellingthetruth

    Great list! Can’t wait! When do we find out the host?

  • Ty Huber

    I wish there were a way to recognize outstanding camerawork and lighting (“Best Cinematography” at the Oscars). It’s not a very sexy category, but it’s something essential to good porn that should be rewarded. “Best Screenplay” — I hope that includes scenes that indicate imaginative planning and structure but perhaps no dialogue. I wonder how many porn scenes even have a screenplay other than a checklist of activities and positions. Sure, several scenes start with a little skit that someone conceivably wrote, but that doesn’t constitute a screenplay, IMHO.

    Aw. I wanted a favorite g4p. For shits and giggles.

  • Burkeman

    Honestly, I am not sure if this has been a good year for gay porn.
    Since Randy Blue stopped producing original scenes, I wonder if gay porn has been steadily declining for years, offset a little by some good scenes at GISPs, Corbin Fisher, and CockyBoys.

    • CamCam

      Oh it’s been on a steady decline for years now and this year wasn’t any different. Most of the content isn’t good at all anymore whether it’s professional or amateur like OnlyFans & JFF (slightly better but not by much) and it’s sad to say that.

  • Jeffrey Duteil

    How do fans vote?

    • B.C.

      Right here. That was the case last year.

  • Jason

    what about daddies??

  • xxlcamran

    Will be great if I get nomination Favorite Fan Content Creator category )
