WEST HOLLYWOOD — A shocking tie for Best Picture between WRONG SIDE OF THE TRACKS 1-2 (Rascal Video) and DANGEROUS LIAISONS (Lucas Entertainment) produced cheers, boos and even ice thrown from the audience that pelted an award-winning producer. The latest GAYVN Awards was a night of unexpected wins, no less than for Best Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of gay porn’s hoi polloi were in attendance for the Eighth Annual “Adult Video News” GAYVN Awards at Rage nightclub in West Hollywood Thursday, March 9th. During an awards ceremony that produced stunning upsets in half a dozen categories, the biggest shockeroo of all came during the final award — Best Picture of 2005 — when megabudget, critically acclaimed pics from Rascal and Lucas tied for the top honor, gay porn’s most prestigious kudo.

The crowd gasped as one when presenter Dean Phoenix announced the stunning tie; moments later, as DANGEROUS LIAISONS producer/director Michael Lucas took the stage, bedlam nearly broke loose when he was pelted with ice thrown by an irate audience member. “Fuck you to everyone who didn’t vote for me!” he declared from the podium to equal parts applause and boos. “Well, thank you to everyone who voted for ME,” exclaimed WRONG SIDE… producer/director Chi Chi LaRue. In a nod to their ongoing publicity war in the press, directrix LaRue thanked Mr. Lucas for being “the best press agent a girl could have all year long. He mentioned me [on his blog] more than he [mentioned] himself!”

Rascal Video Exclusive Johnny Hazzard was the belle of the ball with three major awards — Best Solo Performance, Best Actor and Best Sex Scene (shared with Tyler Riggz, all for WRONG SIDE OF THE TRACKS). In a nod to the seesaw nature of the awards, DANGEROUS LIAISONS star Gus Mattox nabbed the prestigious Performer of the Year trophy.

But Bel Ami superstar Lukas Ridgeston was not to be outdone! The megastar picked up Best Actor–Foreign Release for LUKAS IN LOVE, his swan song to gay XXX, and the film additionally won Best-Renting Title of 2005 as well as Best Foreign Release.

Among the hotly contested categories was one of the night’s most sought-after awards: Best Newcomer. That hardware went to Falcon Exclusive Roman Heart, who beat out acclaimed newbies Benjamin Bradley, Tober Brandt, Jake Deckard, Alex Fuerte, Derrick Hanson, Huessein, Andy Kirra, Pete Ross, Francois Sagat, Jason Tiya and Chris Wide, as competitive a category as the GAYVN Awards has ever seen.
