Well, the GayVN Awards have come and gone and we're disappointed we didn't come away with any wins but offer our whole-hearted congratulations to all the winners announced Saturday night at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. (See official pics here). This year's award show was a fast-moving, well-orchestrated and often downright hilarious affair and it didn't hurt that every time I looked around there was another hot porn star! Even after having directed some of these guys in our hot movies, I still get a little star-struck when I meet a them in person.
Of course, I got to see some of our favorite hot daddies we've worked with there -- I ran into sexy, sweet and H-U-N-G Nick Moretti, one of the stars of our newest video Bears in Paradise, at the over-crowded bar upstairs, Jake Mitchell in line at the bathroom (men's line: crazy long, women's line: none at all) and Tim Kelly (also in Bears in Paradise) with Matthew Rush at the after-party. My editor Kris Fields has had a mad crush on those two ever since she helped edit their hot scene from Brief Encounters (she has their poster on her fridge at home and her boyfriend doesn't seem to mind...) so she was super-excited to meet them in person. I think pictures were taken but at that point I was on my fourth gin and tonic and my memory is, well, foggy.
But the highlight without a doubt was seeing Janice Dickinson, the self-described world's first super-model (of America's Next Top Model fame) in person. First, she actually looks better in person than she does on television. She has the body of a 12 year old boy, with breasts, and her crazy-mouth so evident on television seems less crazy in person. But she... well, I think she is crazy and I LOVE it! She got up on stage and simply had a blast and clearly said anything that came to her, uhh, mind. She determined, for example, that she's a top (no doubt) and Margaret Cho is a bottom (to Margaret's famous hand-waving delight), and that Margaret should have won the award for best bottom given out that night.
The best parts, however, were when they had to navigate her down the stairs off the stage -- I'm not sure if she was somehow impaired or simply that her skinny legs were incapable of holding her up. Janice was a-teetering and I thought for sure we were in for a fall but she made it down and then (here's the best part) she sat down right in front of us! Janice's mad murmurings continued from her seat and she had a comment about everyone and everything (which, for reasons of propriety, I will not repeat here). I love you, Janice. I really do.
