READ TIME: 3 MIN.
Award season is here, but you likely didn't find Entertainment Weekly on the red carpet at the GayVN Awards ceremony in Las Vegas on January 25.
With 33 awards, of which 17 were voted on by fans, the awards covered the breadth of the adult male industry, bringing dozens of performers to Vegas for the ceremony at the Resorts World Las Vegas hosted by comic Alec Mapa and adult male superstar Cade Maddox.
Amongst the winners is Rhyheim Shabazz, who won the Performer of the Year Award. After his win, he wrote on Instagram: "I want to thank everyone at @thegayvn @avn for the honor of being presented with Performer of the Year at last night's ceremony.
I am truly humbled by the honor! I can not wait to see what all the great creators have in store for the future of our industry! Much Lovel!:
Adult superstar Austin Wolf won two fan favorite awards -- Favorite Dom and Favorite Porn Star Creator. He posted a slide show of photos from the event on IG, along with this statement:
"The GayVN Awards (@gayvnstars ) is THE night of the year and our AYLO crew looked AMAZING!!! Congratulations to all of the Winners and Thank You to my amazing fans for voting, I'm the proud Favorite Porn Star Creator & Dom because of you... WE DID IT!
Relatively new to the industry, Derek Kage made a big splash winning two awards: Best Newcomer and Best Leading Actor. He was seen on the red carpet speaking to underwear expert and IG reporter Tyler Dantuma dressed in a sports jacket, leather pants (no underwear), and a knotted green rope harness. Addressing the roping, he said: "So this is Rope Art called Shibari. And it is just Japanese rope art used in BSDM. And since I am an official BSDM, I figure I would do a little homage."
Also winning two awards was another newcomer -- Drake Von, who took home two fan awards: Favorite Twink and Favorite C*ck.
He told Out Magazine on the red carpet: "It's just been such a good year. I've met so many new people. This industry has been so nice to me and I love it. I couldn't ask for anything more."
