Photos: Here Are The Winners And Presenters At The Str8UpGayPorn Awards
Once again, a gigantic thank you to everyone who presented awards at the Str8UpGayPorn Awards last night (full show can be viewed here), everyone who won awards (full winners list here), all of the nominees, each of the 12 judges, and everyone who attended. Above, it’s winner Chi Chi LaRue with her Best Comeback award.
Another huge thanks to our presenting sponsor Pornhub, and co-sponsors Flirt4Free, Fleshjack, and Orbital Pay, who all made the show possible. And, of course, thank you to host Sandra Bernhard, red carpet hosts Bruce Beckham and mr. Pam, and performers Detox and Trinity Taylor. Below, it’s me, Chi Chi, Sandra, and Detox:
Next, Will Wikle presented the award for Best Gay-For-Pay Star, and it went to Johnny Rapid:
Ryan Rose and Sean Ford presented Best Duo scene to Austin Wilde and Jack Hunter, for their GuysInSweatpants duo:
Kyle Ross, Helmut Huxley, and Shangela presented Best Cock to Boomer Banks. Then, Austin Wilde took the stage to accept his Best Body award, while eating a donut:
One of the wildest moments and show highlights came during Detox’s performance, after she brought Marc MacNamara on stage for a sexy lap dance. Well, that lap dance ended with Marc’s chair accidentally falling over backwards:
Max Carter, Evan Parker, and Tyler Hill presented the clip from Lifeguards:
The Best Comeback award was one of four ties throughout the night, and winners Chi Chi LaRue and Bruce Beckham gave two of the best acceptance speeches of the night:
BelAmi was presented two awards from Flirt4Free for their Live Webcam shows. First for being Flirt4Free’s number one gay adult studio, and then for Kevin Warhol being Flirt4Free’s Best Crossover Cam star. Hoyt Kogan, Jerome Exupery, Helmut Huxley, and Christian Lundgren accepted the first award (which may or may not have caused me to die, given their combined hotness), while Phillipe Gaudin was on hand to accept Kevin’s award:
Colby Keller and Asa Akira took the stage to present two awards: Best Studio and Best All-Sex Studio.
Another memorable speech came from the Viewer’s Choice: Favorite Gay Porn Star winner Brent Corrigan, who thanked his fans and reminded the audience how important fans and supporters are to performers:
RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up Trinity Taylor gave the second performance of the night:
Detox’s La La joke played extremely well with the crowd, although, I’m sure the five Best Picture nominees were anxiously waiting for her to read the name of the actual winner. After a few seconds, she corrected her “mistake” and revealed the winner: Lifeguards: Summer Session from Helix Studios.
Congratulations to all of the winners and nominees. Being able to acknowledge everyone’s great work at such a celebratory event was an honor for me, and I’m incredibly grateful to have had everyone there.
