Let me just start off by saying that this is one of my most memorable weekends of the year! Being apart of what the industry calls “The Oscars of Gay Porn” was seriously an honor. It brought some of the industry’s most recognized names, hottest guys, and overall hot messes together for one weekend at the Hard Rock hotel in Chicago. So you can imagine the craziness, suite parties etc etc that went on this weekend. & Being able to do it with my CockyBoys family was another!
At this year’s Grabbys I was honored to have been selected to Co-Host alongside some other pretty intimidating people… & I can’t explain how nervous I was to be honest. Luckily, It was a lot more fun than I expected. I got to present the awards for Best Group Scene & Best Screenplay as well as introduce the clip for Belami’s 2nd edition of their Americans in Prague dvd. If you were there you would know that while showing the clip, well that there was TECHNICAL difficulties haha… & well I had to improv my way through it without crying. I’m glad I survived… & it’s awesome to see my performance paid off because I was named and gaven a SWORDIE for “The Host with the Most” by THE SWORD!
Going into this I wasn’t really expecting winning anything, I mean being nominated 6 times was really a honor on it’s own… & you know the night got even better when I was awarded 2013 Best Newcomer of the YEAR! I’m still processing it really… I mean this is only my first year in the business and It’s just crazy to be awarded and recognized for everything I did this year. Especially when some of those other people in the category were bigger names and have all worked just as hard as me. So this is a big achievement, because it doesn’t matter if it’s porn, or drawing a coloring book, or cutting my parents grass, I ALWAYS give my 100%. I’ve always been self motivated in that way… because that way I can NEVER regret doing it. & to be honest I am so proud of everything I’ve done and filmed that it’s nearly impossible 5 years from now to regret it.
Cockyboys took home a smacking 4 Grabby Awards this year!! Jake Jaxson was recognized for his immense talent in directing and blurring the lines of reality and porn, My first project I ever did that also starred Jake Bass, PROJECT GOGO BOY, took home the BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR and SteamWorks Fan Favorite!!!!!!!!!!!! We are incredibly grateful and we couldn’t have done it without the continuous support of the fans for pushing us to well push the boundaries.
We also hosted our Cockyboys Summer Tour Kickoff Party, The Tim and Roma Show, Recovery Brunch, and it’s so crazy how I even have the enrgy to write this post right now! Like I said I’m still processing it… but we are all so thankful for our recognitions & we are excited to get back to work! We have big things planned and maybe we will see you at the Grabbys again next year ;)
