Here are the nominations for the 15th annual Cybersocket Awards, honoring the very best (and in many cases, the very worst!) in gay porn. (Coverage of last year’s ceremony: videos and photos.) Just when you think you’re starting to mostly agree with a particular category’s long list of nominees, one will pop up and make you say, “The fuck?” That’s just part of the charm of the Cybersockets!

Here are the most significant categories and deserved/ridiculous nominees:

Playgirl? When was the last time you looked at Playgirl on your mobile phone, let alone anywhere? When was the last time you even heard the word “Playgirl”? Looks like someone bought a Cybersocket ad. (But curiously: Playgirl has money to buy a Cybersocket ad?)

This is the most embarrassing and horrific list of nominees in any category. CocksureMen has been recycling terrible European content since 2014. Dallas Reeves, Jason Sparks, and TIMFuck are insane horror shows that should be shut down. Jet Set Men hasn’t released any new content since 2013. Even Dominic Ford himself isn’t stupid enough to watch the content on DominicFord.com. Icon Male forces its models to sleep in a house full of rodent feces. And Playgirl. Did Playgirl spend extra on their ad to make their name appear in ALL CAPS every time?

Malachi Marx came back and did two scenes, and he’s up for Best Porn Star? Trevor Knight and Kirk Cummings haven’t filmed any gay porn since like 2011. And while many of these guys deserve to be here, it has to feel pretty gross being nominated alongside someone like Dallas Reeves. Just give this award to Curtis. Or Playgirl.

Notable snubs this year include Jarec Wentworth (if Michael Lucas can be nominated, why can’t a convicted felon?), Tom Faulk, Colt Rivers, Ricky Roman, and Mickey Taylor.

Awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on January 12th, 2016. Location TBD. Full list of nominations here. Fan voting (through December 5th) is here.

  • Eric AS

    Tbh baitbus sticks out to me as the most ludicrous, but then again last month I bought a buddy’s GF a 1987 playgirl with Mel Gibson on the cover for her dirty 30. Therefore I might be overly biased.

  • FrenchBug

    What’s the story on JasonSparks. Their stuff isn’t very good but I didn’t realize they had a TIM or Dallas Reeves-type reputation. What did I miss?

    • loyalty888

      They’re very sketchy in their recruiting. Preying on young impressionable models, not testing them before pairing them together for bareback sex. Stories of Jason having sex with all models behind the scenes (not exactly uncommon in the industry but not professional either), paying shit for scene rates. These are the sort of things I’ve come across of Jason Sparks being called out by Diesel Washington, FabScout Howard and others on twitter. I’m sure there’s more in depth stories out there.

  • Luca

    Is there ANYONE that hasn’t been nominated for best porn star?!

    And I know approximately 20% of the names of the list for Best Newcomes…

    And I really should end every post with PLAYGIRL!

    It really gives that added bite.

    PLAYGIRL!

    • Capello

      Paul Cannon for example hasn’t been nominated for BPS.

  • R.A.M.J

    Really, some of those people for best personality and best porn star paid for nominations right? who did they suck off or let suck them off for a nomination. There are a few who have no business being on that list.

  • gaypornfanatic

    who knew Playgirl had an app called Playr? What is even the point? I may download it out of curiosity.

    • Zachary Sire

      If you do, maybe you’ll meet someone from 1985.

      • Stuart

        It’s like Back To The Future, only sluttier.

      • jimboivyo

        I don’t think anyone is currently looking to meet Michael Lucas.

  • S .

    60+ nominations for best porn star? WTF.

    Do the Oscar/Emmy/Grammy thing and just make it 6.

    Then the fur (or freshly waxed/shaved) would fly.

    • boner

  • beariac
  • jimboivyo

    ..

  • Stuart

    Slightly disappointed PLAYGIRL didn’t get a nomination for Company of the year.

  • snoopyfo

    LMAO, i was literally crying, this is one of the funniest articles ever, you made my day today zach, the playgirl joke is just too much lol, i hope you win all your nominations zach!!!

  • Todd

    There was a mistake. I bought a nomination for Best Wessonality, not Best Personality.

  • john

    I cant wait for the big night!!

  • andrew

    My choice for Best Newcomer is Rhys Jagger. I think Best Porn Star should go to Johnny Rapid. He’s easy on the eyes, the most prolific and a damn good performer.

  • Todd

    Where’s my fucking nomination ? You know you want this big, hard cock … http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mc9zmw4X8I1qdyumjo1_400.gif

  • pangelboy

    I just want “Twinks Destroyed from Bareback Monster Cocks” to win their category based on that title alone.

    Also, congrats to Str8UpGayPorn and Zach for the nominations.

    http://i.giphy.com/bvUMY0my1e5W0.gif

  • R.A.M.J

    What is best personality? Honestly?

  • CK

    Do nominations even mean a damn when you nominate everybody? Hell, the only way to not get nominated was to be a Ethnic performer or a site catering to that demographic.

  • Casey Scott

    Tom Faulk deserves nothing. NOTHING!

  • Maximus

    Based on the nominees, I can’t tell whether these awards are honors or insults……

  • Zealot

    Zach…how about you come up with your own set of on-line porn awards? It would have to be 100x more amaze-balls than this tired list of PLAYGIRLS, Dallas Reeves and the like. You could consider: “Best Outfit Worn While Extorting Donald Burns”; “Most Racist Tweet”; “Most Ridiculous Go Fund-Me Campaign”; “Best Incest-Themed Scene”; “Straightest Gay Porn Star”; “Whitest Cast”; “Hottest Mug Shot”; “Most Creative Cum Substitute”; “Best Non-Neon Paint-Spattered Set”; “Best On-Set Fight (physical and Twitter-based categories)”; “Most Incoherent Tattoo”; “Best Facial Wince While Being Butt Fucked by Rocco Steele (with AND without condom categories)”; “Filthiest Set”; “Most Bounced Checks”; and “Best Excuse For Messing With Porn Talent”. I’m sure I’m overlooking something incredibly obvious here….

    • Maximus

      Genius!! How do we convince Zach to make this happen?

    • Hereweare

      Absolutely hilarious!!

    • Sed

      Most racist tweet. LMAO

    • boner

    • beariac

      Brilliant list, but I think you may have overlooked an award that Ryan Rose could win. “Biggest Narcissist” perhaps?
      https://media1.giphy.com/media/ohi979zEnEu4w/200.gif

      • Zealot

        Yes, or “Best Life Save” (self-awarded).

  • “It’s an honour just to be nominated along with my four dozen fellow nominees…”

  • DPS

    And now we get what? Six months of begging incessantly for votes? It is like when the election ads start and I wanna slit my wrists as to hear another “I approved this message”.

  • WhimsyCotton

    All these nominations seem so odd to me. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say most of them are just bought. I’m sure MEN, Helix, and Cockyboys will be the big winners (as they always are at awards) barring some event of Biblical proportions. I can’t pretend I wouldn’t be fascinated to see Curtis actually get flown in to accept an award if he somehow won.
