Here’s Who Won the ‘Oscars of Gay Porn’ for 2020

A triptych of porn stars at the GayVN 2020 Awards.

Yes, there were the SAG Awards this Sunday, and we’ve seen the Golden Globes come and go, but the glitzy names of Hollywood aren’t the only ones one the award show circuit at the moment. While those events have been going full steam ahead, so has the porn circuit for gay porn, with the Str8UpGayPorn Awards, Cybersocket Web Awards, and the GayVNs all having recently taken place — the Grabby’s, which are referred to as the “Golden Globes of Gay Porn,” happen in May in Chicago, taking place on the same weekend as International Mr. Leather. The juxtaposition of the shows can make for some interesting realizations.

“The gay porn awards nominated more female directors than the Oscars,” porn performer Ty Mitchell tweeted after the Academy Awards released this year’s nominations. The announcement came the morning after Str8Up’s Kathy Griffin-hosted award show where mr. Pam was nominated for Best Director alongside Chi Chi LaRue for their work on NakedSword’s Scared Stiff 2. But Monday night hosted the big kahuna of the circuit: the GayVNs, commonly referred to as the “Oscars of Gay Porn.”

This year’s GayVNs boasted Alec Mapa and Nicole Byer as hosts — Shangela made an appearance to officially hand over the hosting duties — with the likes of King Princess and Alyssa Edwards as performers. As in years passed, it included a line up of official GayVN Awards as well as a selection of fan voted, fan favorite awards. 

There was a little news. When the Helix Studios team went up to accept Best Feature for Vegas Nights, Kyle Ross announced that the show “may be” his last time on stage as he plans to retire from filming, to work on the corporate side of the business. Considering Vegas Nights won Best Feature at the GayVNs, Best Picture at the Str8UpGayPorn Awards, in addition to Best Group and Best Movie at the Grabbys, he’s certainly going out on a high note!

The night also marked the first time that a Black performer won Best Actor with DeAngelo Jackson winning for his work in Icon Male's Blended Family. The move comes only three years after the award show suffered cricism for "Ethnic" categories.
