EGPA-logoThe 2008 European Gay Porn Awards have been announced. Constant Readers will recall some controversy I stepped into last year following the announcement of the inaugural slate of EGPA nominees; many bareback studios and films were cited, and there was some fighting in this space about who, exactly, sponsored and financed the show, which bills itself as a kind of European “People’s Choice” of porn awards. If it sounds like I’m talking about the David Awards, I’m not; this is the other European gay porn show that launched last year. Like the Davids, they aren’t working very hard to promote (or include, for that matter) U.S. companies. Only two Stateside films won any 2007 EGPA trophies: U.S. Male‘s DADS ‘N LADS 2 for Best Bear Film, and DADS ‘N LADS 3 for Best Non-European Film. This year, a whopping 27 (!) guys are up for Best Actor and 31 (!!) movies are up for Best Film. Some U.S. studios and performers—Bel Ami, Dark Alley Media, Jet Set, Hot House, Lucas Entertainment, Titan Media—are in the mix. Stay tuned for more nominees. In the meantime, read on…

    Well, I guess Titan should withdraw their nominations now since they have already stated that they don’t have any desire to be a part of an awards program that will also honor bareback videos.

    Things that make you go Hmmmmm – especially since the nominations appear to be made by the studios on their own behalf…

    What’s the difference between this or the David Awards?

    Yes, each studio is asked to nominate in each categories… I thought they would make a shortlist, but obviously not!
