2012 Grabby Awards Co-Host & Nominees Announced!

In what seems to be the last remaining gay porn award shows, the annual Grabbys Award Show in Chicago is back and dedicated to highlighting the top talent and performances in the gay erotic film industry. This year, our very own website, GayPornGossip is alongside some of the best web blogs named as a nominee for the category, Best Blog. We’ve scattered a number of pics throughout this post from Grabby shows of the past.

The first Grabby Awards (formally known as Adult Erotic Gay Video Awards) were given in 1991, when the awards were listed in the year-end issue of Gay Chicago Magazine. Award’s given that year included “Burnout of the Year”, “Comeback of the Year”, “Fresh Surprise of the Year”, “Best Supporting Actor”, “Best Newcomer”, and “Best Overall Performer”.

The event is made possible by Grab Magazine. If your company is interested in being a sponsor this year of the event or participate in a number of opportunities in the program guide, please show your support and contact Mark Nahel at 773-504-2430 or via email. Advertising with the Grabby Awards is a great way to promote your company or organization among scores of the leading gay adult businesses and among the fans of this industry. The Grabby Awards is the only fan based show of this kind.

Tickets to this event go on sale Tuesday, April 3rd at Grabbys.xxx. Hard Rock Hotel is the sponsoring hotel again this year, you can book your room now (while they’re still available and will not last long) for as low as $129 a night.

Last year, the boys from AustinZane.com stole the show on the red carpet and at all the pre-parties. This year, the boys of AustinZane are taking over! As one of the stars of the show, Austin Andrews has been voted “fan favorite” to co-host The 2012 Grabby Awards this year alongside adult entertainment icon Chi Chi LaRue, legendary drag performer Honey West and gay porn superstars Adam Killian and Tom Wolfe. The ceremony will be held over Memorial Day Weekend at Park West Theater in Chicago, Illinois.

This marks the first time in the fifteen-year history of the show that an Internet-based porn star is co-hosting the evening’s festivities. Having never had the exposure of being in a movie for a major DVD studio, Austin’s win for “fan favorite” signifies a shift in the gay porn world wherein a web star can now be just as popular as the “superstars” of today’s biggest studio exclusives.

This year’s nominees, listed by category are as follows:
