2010-TLA-Gay-Awards-logo-artMega-retailer TLAvideo.com has recently launched the genre-specific site TLAgay.com — which includes both blue movies as well as mainstream titles and other products — and announced an inaugural slate of adult-biz award nominees. The initial batch of TLA Gay Awards were determined in-house; the final winners will be decided, in part, by public vote. “Everyone has an opinion, and if you’re reading this mini-missive then you no doubt have some very specific opinions about gay pornography,” reads an open letter on the awards website. “So does the industry, as there are countless awards doled out annually by nearly every magazine and blog, all anointing what they claim to be the very best in adult filmmaking. Well, as the biggest gay adult retailer in North America we figured it high time we do the same.” Among the nominees is Gay Porn Times in the category of Twitter-Mania: Most Prolific in the Biz. The deadline for voting is March 31 and winners will be revealed April 15. CLICK HERE for the full list of nominees…

    Congrats J.C. for your nomination; it’s splendid to see TLA exhibiting such keen insight and good judgment HA! and for coming up with such quirky/fun categories.These are right up my (back)alley.Gotta take a closer butchers, but I’m loving that ‘Best ‘n Biggest Badass ‘ and especially ‘Best Hair’ (ROTFLMFAO)!

  2. Mark Wilson on March 1, 2010 5:08 pm

    Where is my fav boy Cody Kyler on that newcomer list?

  3. Crabby on March 1, 2010 7:31 pm

    REALLY? Another set of ‘awards’?? Too funny.

  4. Damien on March 1, 2010 9:50 pm

    How is David Taylor a Newcomer? I can see Landon Conrad and some of the others but if you have been in the industry for over two years then you aren’t a newcomer. I’m fine with David as a performer but he isn’t a newcomer.

    Conrats on your nod.

    My initial reaction (read: tweet) to this was that the interesting noms were only so if by interesting TLA means just the same old-same old. Really, is there anything different or new among the lists of “big boy” studios, directors, and the rather loosely-defined “newcomers”? And how insulting is the term “big boy” (and I don’t mean to them)?

    So, since the Gayvn awards are most definitely a #fail, TLA seems to be ready to step up. The question is, to what end? Will these “awards” be just another sham gay porn awards iteration? It’s not looking promising when, at the outset, TLA says they nominees were selected by their in-house experts, and these “experts” obviously look at the industry with the same pair of rose-colored glasses as the “editors” at Gayvn.

    “rose colored glasses” or not, we are proud and very excited to have been nominated as an up & coming studio and thank TLA’s in-house experts!
