2010-TLA-Gay-Awards-logo-artPress Release Roundup: Winners of the first annual TLA Gay Awards have been announced and Lucas Entertainment‘s MEN OF ISRAEL won the marquee category of movie of the year, a trophy it also snagged from the Cybersocket Web Awards. “The polls are closed, the dust has settled, our chads are dangling and the results are in,” said a TLA rep. Directrix Chi Chi LaRue won best director while Brent Corrigan snagged best performer and Samuel Colt was singled out as favorite newcomer. Titan Media walked away with honors as best studio — they also recently won the comparable category at the recent XBIZ Awards for the third time — while web studio Randy Blue was also cited as best new-to-DVD company. And Gay Porn Times lost out for “Twitter-Maniac” to performer Rob Romoni. CLICK HERE for the full list of winners…

The mega-retailer announced its nominees for the 2010 TLA Gay Awards in early March. The initial roster was determined in-house and the final winners decided by online voting (see the links at the bottom of the page for the full list).

“Everyone has an opinion… about gay pornography,” read an open letter that accompanied the announcement. “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.”

    Good for you, JC, for celebrating the winners despite your loss. Stay Classy.

    I like this TLA Gay thingy. Its an upbeat, cheery awards concept in an otherwise drab time for gay adult.

    Thanks, TLA, for showcasing a broad range of what this vibrant industry does, the old and reliable (Sorry Chi Chi Tea), the young (and of age, no less, Brent) and the off-beat.

    There’s no accounting for taste.

    “Men of Israel” was a great film… but “Inside Israel” was even better.

    Can’t take an award show seriously that doesn’t include David from ‘Active Duty’.
