I failed so miserably at predicting the GayVNs and the Cybersockets, it only makes sense to be wrong again about more gay porn awards. Here then, the first in The Sword’s three part series on Grabbys predictions, all leading up to the show on May 28th in Chicago.
Check back over the next two weeks for more predictions. And, I’m only going through the categories that interest me so, sorry, no predictions on who will take home Best Affiliate Program or Best Live Cam. All the nominees are here.
Also, these are just predictions and not necessarily reflective of my personal opinions, except in cases where they totally are. As usual, “will win” goes to the most politically likely and safe choice, “should win” goes to the one considered most deserving, and “no guts no glory” goes to the dark horse who doesn’t stand a chance.
Best Original Content
Bel Ami Online
Channel 1 Releasing
Next Door Studios
On The Hunt
This could also be called the award for Best Studio, as the line between traditional DVD and online-based studios no longer exists in 2011. All the “old school” (for lack of a better term) studios release their content online before shipping DVDs, and of those (e.g., Falcon, Raging Stallion, Titan, Lucas, etc.) Channel 1 and Hot House were the only ones to make the cut in this category. Then again, there’s also a category for Best Video Company Site, where Channel 1 and Hot House are nominated again (with Falcon and Raging Stallion), along with Bel Ami, Dominic Ford, and Next Door, who are also nominated again. I’m confused.
Will Win: Randy Blue
Should Win: Bel Ami Online
No Guts, No Glory: Cocksure Men
Best Porn Star Blog
The one person who should have been nominated isn’t, and some of these blogs are barely updated once a month, if at all. So…

The Grabbys love Channel 1, and they really love Brent Everett and Roman Heart (who was a co-host last year), so this is tough. But my heart and my boner belong to the King/Cutler flip-fuck, which is the hottest duo on this list (even though it was released in 2009 and is somehow eligible?).
