Judges will vote in 19 of the above categories, while readers and fans online will vote in the 9 “Viewer’s Choice” categories. Those “Viewer’s Choice” polls will be posted at 2pm PT today, and that voting will also conclude on September 24th. Congratulations to all of the nominees, and we’ll see you on October 21st!


  • Tristan Adler

    I am so honored. Bless all my companions and friends that earned me a nomination. <3

  • seeker630

    What’s the difference between “Best Gay Porn Studio Studio” and “Best All-Sex Gay Porn Studio”?

    • simple answer the studios on All sex Studio list do not have “scenarios,themes,scripted movie’s,videos or parody’s All Sex means exactly that no scene set ups just sex from start to finish

      • seeker630

        Thanks for the explanation. Bromo seems to feature a fair amount of themes & scenarios tho.

        • correct and such a distinction can be fuzzy at best you might say FratX/Sketchy Sex is an all sex studio yet the overall site has a theme(sordid sex reality show) 😉

  • Good nominations this year and I see some real favorites and outstanding performers getting recognized.I am very happy to see Austin WIlde and Logan Cross nominated for their GiSP scene one of the best last year and that led to Logan Cross nominated in Viewers Choice for Fav Pornstar as well. Logan is a highly underrated super bottom in porn!

  • doodlebug

    O.K., I’ve got to ask, where’s Blake?

  • Scrapple

    Interesting list. Some surprises here and there. I see one category which will have a certain segment of the population triggered for weeks. So thank you.

  • B.C.

    My favourites: best butt and best body – Sean Zevran. Best cock – tragically Jack Hunter is not nominated so it has to be JJ Knight’s lovely meat. Best debutantes Angel Rivera and Max Adonis. Best flip-fuck scene Ashton Summers and Calvin Banks for sure. Max fucking Elian – why aren’t they nominated? Best Daddy – Myles Landon without a doubt. Best twink? Don’t really care. Best studio – CockyBoys easily. Oh, and Dato Foland and Adam Ramzi need to win something.

  • Sandi

    For once I have almost no complaints about a nomination list, I do however have two.
    1. How did Max Adonis NOT make the Best Newcomer list?
    2. And this is the biggest one…WTF was the time frame for nominated scenes? Because, the Ricky Roman, Josh Moore and Logan Moore scene was a year AND a half ago, it was released 17 months ago. Seriously? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Ricky and Josh, but there were way better scenes than this to choose from. Ffs, Logan spent most of the scene looking checked out and dead-eyed.
    I hope they win but sheesh.

    Nice job Zach, nobody else in the industry seems to be able to keep a nomination list under 20 minutes long, you did so nicely.

    • Zachary Sire

      As noted earlier (, the eligibility period for nominees was March 1st 2017, through June 30th 2018. The scene you mention was released on March 31st, 2017.

      Max Adonis did not have enough scenes released in the eligibility period to be up for Best Newcomer, but he was nominated for Best Debut Performance, for his first scene in May (with Josh Moore), which you may have missed.

    • Betsy

      I believe the criteria was anything released between March 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. The Josh, Ricky & Logan scene was release around the end of March 2017 by CockyBoys.

  • Xzamilloh

    Corbin Colby in Best Butt and Best Cock category

    Why not just create a Most Genetically Blessed category and give him the trophy.

  • Eclipse

    Solid nominees across the board but legit shocked at the amount of noms Men garnered.

  • Eric

    Thought I might see some nominations for Tim Tales…Henrik Sommer scene for example.

    • Joey

      Right? For Best Bottoming Performance, at least. Those scenes of Henrik getting drilled within an inch of his steamy glasses are pure gold.

  • Max Adonis

    Thankyou @str8upgayporn for the nomination! Its an honor to be considered for anything this early in my career.

    • DaveAtom

      That’s because you’re so great this early in your career 😉

      • B.C.

        I second that. Scenes at CB with Taylor Reign and especially Cade Maddox are spectacular.

        • GayhawkAZ

          Looks like Max and Cade are an item, too. :)

          • B.C.

            Nice. I thought there was some extra spice and energy in their scenes.

  • Del

    Hoping Mormonboyz wins best Niche site!

  • Jax

    Do Dante Colle and Michael DelRay appear in straight/bi scenes? I wouldn’t have guessed.

    • Hari Kalyan

      yep I follow MDR on IG and that’s where I first learned about his other work. I believe his girlfriend is in the porn industry too.

  • Morgan

    I figured Family Dick would get a Niche Studio nomination based on the amount of ink they get on this site! Then again you’d have to fly the whole family in and they might get jealous of their siblings, stepdads, etc. based on table placement so maybe it’s for the best!

    Glad Michael DelRay got a nomination (who knew he did bi scenes?) but think he could have qualified in a few more categories, he worked hard this year. As did Henrik Sommer, who was shut out of Best Bottom scene?! How!?

    • Hari Kalyan

      Well Family Dick uses a lot of the same models as Mormonboyz (not sure if they’re owned by the same company?) so I guess it would’ve been like double dipping to nominate them both. But you’re right, its surprising to see MB nominated instead of FD considering the almost weekly coverage of that site on this blog (versus Mormonboyz which gets barely any coverage in comparison ). And Henrik not getting nominated in ANY category is… interesting… to say the least. But it is what it is I guess. Congrats to the nominees and kudos to all those who help but this together. Tracking performances throughout a YEAR AND HALF eligibility period is mind boggling. I can’t even imagine the work to even try to narrow down the nominees to only 5 or 6 in some of the categories above.

  • Hari Kalyan

    So are the viewer’s choice categories the ones that fans get to vote on, right? I wonder if write-in nominees would ever be allowed in the future.

  • Louis Leonardo

    this is great, but in the video announcement with the helix boys, that guy on the right (Kyle Ross?) looked like he would’ve rather stabbed himself in the eye than doing the video LOL

  • Harvey Cobb

    Guess blacks & latinos need to create their own awards shows, because it aint happening here lol.

  • Ney

    I think that the selection criteria should have been handled better and not be like the typical awards, which leave dissatisfied followers of the actors, studios and companies that run these awards. They have ONE YEAR between March 1st through June 30th. To collect and analyze the best videos to postulate them.

    For example:

    1. What criteria do you use for the selection of the category: Performer Of The Year?
    Here are not only some repeated, I do not think it is by quantity, but by the content of the video and what the actors that make the quality of the videos transmit. And there are other actors who have stood out more in this year than some of the nominees.

    2. In the category “Best Three-Way Scene”, it should be because the 3 actors stand out equally and make the audience see the pleasure. But in the Ricky Roman, Josh Moore and Logan Moore scene, although the three are excellent, Do not get me wrong, Ricky Roman was the one that made the scene have the quality that was required, Josh Moore tried to stand out but Logan Moore did not He did his best performance (and that Ricky throughout the video you could see the desire for Logan). And there were more scenes in the industry to apply.

    3. Instead, they would have better postulated in “Best Duo Scene” to Ricky Roman and Josh Moore for FLIPPED OUT, which deserved to be in this category.

    But the video that had to be included from the beginning to APPLY IN “Best Duo Scene” was that of TAYLOR REIGN and RICKY ROMAN, released on 03/10/2017; very good compatibility (good sex, chemistry, pleasure, the performance looks real and has quality … time and time again, and it always makes you hot, that’s entertainment for adults that the cinema should project).
    This is what they should see when they are selecting candidates and if not many awards are the same (they always favor the same actors and sponsoring studios), this video was to have won a Grabby, Prowler European Porn Awards, or GayVN Awards; If you really took the time to study the industry in general and it was not every year more disappointing.

    4. In the category “Best Gay Porn Studio and best All-Sex Gay Porn Studio”, although the selection of studies is good, I miss the list was a little more extensive. Now there are more independent studies that have edited good videos. Although I agree and congratulate that you have NOT selected those pornographic studies that denigrate the integrity of the actors and make that industry a mediocrity, just by selling cheap pornography and being recognized for it.

    5. In the category “Best Topping Performance”, there were more actors who deserved to be nominated and with better scenes (without offending the nominees, but this year many other well-known actors stood out but almost not taken into account for these categories).

    6. In the categories “Best Butt and Best Body”, as they are based on this choice. Some postulates are not so attractive to meet the guidelines of what the name of these categories says. For example: Many actors have said in their scenes and videos that this model and actor Ricky Roman (previously mentioned), is admired not only for his personal beauty, but also think that it is completely attractive, spectacular body and a big butt, with good contour and very desirable. And this postulate is not.
    So it happens with other actors that obviously would stand out more in this category.

    7. In the category of “Viewer’s Choice: Favorite Twink”, the selection of postulates was not. With all due respect, but there are more actors outside helixstudios, and this year that list would have been more varied.

    8. In the category of “Viewer’s Choice: Favorite Daddy” …. They are for men older in age and some postulates are still young. Also it should be longer, there are good applicants who were outside and more international would be good.

    9. As in many other categories, this: Viewer’s Choice: Favorite Gay Porn Star. It is a very important one, but once again and I repeat, with a whole year to go selecting the best of the best, I miss better elections in many postulates.

    Hopefully, our suggestions as an assistant public will be taken into account. Because I like the Str8UpGayPorn page.

  • Jay

    Sorry but no thanks. Same ole stars heavily populated from 3 studios. Big question….what happened to gay porns “Star of Summer” Roman Todd?? All the blogs couldn’t stop breathlessly singing his praises. Nowhere!!!! I’d say that screams a problem in your nominee selection. I can’t take this award show seriously. C’mon. I’d need a lot of caffeine to get through this one. There’s always next year.

  • Dean

    Josh Brady has been doing it for lately…
