We recently asked our Constant Readers to suggest potential picks for next spring’s GAYVN and Grabby Awards (and we’ll be coming back to that soon…) But those nominees won’t be revealed for months yet. We do have an appetizer, however. This month, however, Germany’s GAYeLINE Magazine (a gay porn trade mag) sponsors the 2nd Annual David Awards (named for Michelangelo’s David, natch) in conjunction with the Hustlaball and the 11th Annual Venus Erotic Expo in Berlin. Check out the official website at Venus-Berlin.com.

They aren’t exactly making it easy to locate a complete list of nominees, but a few have leaked out. Two studios have circulated press releases touting their nominees: Channel 1 Releasing is crowing about citations for Best American Actor: Blake Riley; Best American Cover: IN HIS DREAMS: and Best American Director: Chi Chi LaRue, a category the directrix claimed last year.

Meanwhile, Titan Media is boasting about their four nominees: Best American Actor: Alex Baresi; Best American Director: Joe Gage; Best American Fetish Film: FOLSOM LEATHER; and Best American Studio, which Titan took last year.

Spencer Quest was named 2006’s Best American Performer and Lucas Entertainment’s BARCELONA NIGHTS Best American Film. Francois Sagat began his 2006 awards swing with the David Award for Best European Performer.

Stay tuned for more specifics.

    For an update on the Grabbys, I wanted to let you know that I think Playback is the best directed video of the year (so far). Of course, the 800 pound gorilla waiting in the wings is Grunts. My review for Playback will be at grabbys.com soon, and will also likely appear even sooner on the ragingstallion.com website. Have you checked out the opening scene with Jake Deckard and Remy Delaine? It’s a whopper, and even better if you have a hi-def DVD player! I’d sure like to know what your readers are thinking about it.

    It would be great if there was a full list of nominees available on the internet. I have been to the VENUS convention site and looked for info on the GAY eLINE Site and I did not find anything regarding the DAVID Awards. I even Goggled it. Nada! Only the studios that self promoted their nominations made news but other studios and actors got nods as well. For example Mirage is up for best American Film. Anyone out there have an idea where inquiring minds can get the FULL list of nominees? Thanks guys!

    Matt — Thanks for the thoughts on PLAYBACK. I love anything with Remy Delaine. Yowza.

    Steve — Believe me, I’m trying to get a full list of nominees. Their publicity department is a bit lacking…
