A Bigger, Better Grabby Awards Show!
Page 2 -- by Matthew Cronin


Trophy Studs Anthony Holloway and Tag Adams stand watch over the awards.

Readers of the previous year's Grabby article may remember that this reporter was quite taken with the blinding beauty of Falcon exclusive Matthew Rush. You may be interested to know that I have fallen for yet another dazzling tower of handsomeness, but Rush will always hold a special space in my heart. Introduced this year as "the biggest porn star in the world" by cohosts Wolfe and Steele.

Presenters Matthew Rush and Damian Ford

Rush strode onstage with copresenter Damian Ford bedecked in black jeans, black hat and the big black boa. Ford , in blue with blue boa quickly awarded Best International Video to Bel Ami's Just for Fun, and Rush named Tag Eriksson as the recipient for Best Solo Performance in The Hole.

It was here that infatuation blossomed afresh in my heart as Eriksson left his table just a few feet away from my own to accept his award. Long and lanky Swedish-born Eriksson approached the microphone and confessed in charmingly halting English that he was nervous. He thanked his attractive husband sitting just a few feet in front of him and revealed that only five years ago he considered himself heterosexual. He closed by thanking the crowd and confirming that he now, indeed, finds himself happily homosexual and hopes to continue to make as many films as he can in the future. Be still my beating heart!

Big Daddy Ferguson (with the the yellow boa Matthew Rush bestoded on him upon introuctution) awoke me from my reverie as he stood center stage and introduced columnist Billy Masters to the stage to help announce two Editor's Choice Awards. Masters entered wearing a beautiful white wedding gown and asked Big Daddy if he would his accept his rose. Roars of laughter and applause rippled through Park West when Big Daddy placed the rose between his teeth and Masters executed a grateful curtsey to the crowd.

Once the audience subsided, Big Daddy awarded Editor's Choice statuettes to Jett Blakk and Doug Jeffries, two up-and-coming directors that he feels will be the superstar filmmakers of tomorrow. A clearly surprised Blakk thanked Big Daddy and Gay Chicago and then gave us a preview of what's to come from Red Devil Entertainment including, "Nick Capra bottoming for the first time."

Internet columnist Jason Seachrest and cohost Bret Wolfe then presented a wicker basket overflowing with bottles of lube graciously donated by sponsor ID Lubricant to the an individual they felt "most likely to use this entire basket" in the very near future. A clearly overwhelmed Michael Knight was called to the stage to accept this most slippery of awards. This popular bottom offered one of the wittiest lines of the show as he thanked "the endless number of inches who have entered me." Enough said!

Hostess LaRue appeared once again with a new outfit that included a see-through top that revealed a pair of incredibly life-like female breasts. Co-hostess West couldn't keep her hands off of them until LaRue admonished her with a reminder that "these tits cost me $250!"

Our newly buxom hostess then introduced industry favorite Will Clark and olive-skinned cutie Nick Capra to awards for Hottest Cock and Best Newcomers. Chad Hunt found himself with his third award of the evening as his supersized appendage was named top of the past year. Hunt quipped, "It just goes to show you that 11 by seven is nothing to sneeze at." I don't think anyone thinks of sneezing at what you have between your legs, Chad!

Tag Eriksson and Tag Adams were named Best Newcomers, and both appeared sincerely surprised and elated at the dual honor. Adams amusingly noted that he had "worked his ass off for this all year," while Eriksson told of nervousness at receiving the script for The Hole and wondering why there were so many lines to memorize for a what he thought was a simple porn movie. I'm sure I wasn't the only one thinking about a sexual matchup on film between these two adorable Tags. Don't be surprised if such a scene happens within the next year or two!

Presenters Peter Dixon and Michael Knight

Super bottom Michael Knight and blond titan Peter Dixon next presented the second of our surprise awards, for the Hottest Cum Shots from 2003. It turned out to be a multiple award for the underwater cum shot scene featuring Ray Dragon, Marcus Irons, Dave Angelo, Rob Romoni and Matt Colmar from Colt Studios' Reload. Romoni and a representative from the newly relaunched Colt accepted the award on behalf of their coworkers. Michael Soldier was named Best Actor for his exceptional work in Raging Stallion's runaway smash A Porn Star is Born.

LaRue introduced one of the next two presenters, Dick Wolfe, as someone who makes her sincerely weak in the knees, while cohost Bret Wolfe named him "an amazing kisser." Dick Wolfe then hit the stage with luscious Alex Collack to award statuettes for Best Art Direction and Hottest Versatile Performer, the third of four special awards that evening. The darkly sexual circus atmosphere of Carny from Titan Media easily claimed the prize for art direction while an otherwise occupied Anthony Holloway was cited as the Hottest Versatile Performer. Holloway appeared to be in the men's room as his name was called but quickly ran to the stage to thank Gay Chicago for "the first award" he had ever won. Sweet!
