It’s that time of year – Adele swept the board at the Grammys, La La Land scooped Best Film at the BAFTAs, and the Oscars are just around the corner.
Although it seems that porn award events are spread a bit more evenly though-out the year, there’s a few things happening at the moment.
The X-Awards began in 2013 and are given to people, businesses or enterprises which have made a contribution to the European leather and fetish community. I actually didn’t realise it for a little while but Sleazy Pig Lads made the nominations for Fetish Film Of The Year! I did post a little tweet about it when I found out, but if you follow me on Twitter you’ll probably notice I don’t tend to constantly hammer out tweets all saying the same thing to promote scenes or ask for votes etc.
This is probably a very self-defeating way of using social media – it seems to be all about constantly hyping and promoting oneself over and over (because Twitter is primarily a real-time stream of messages rather than an archive of messages – more like this blog is).
Surely the whole point of making a film like Sleazy Pig Lads is so that people can see it – and the more people that see it the better – but I’ve never been very good at hyping/boasting/bragging/selling my own achievements and instead just let these things naturally find their own way to other people.
The results are being announced at an event on Sunday night (19th February) as part of the LeatherPride Belgium weekend – so I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Also nominated for Fetish Film Of The Year are Cazzo’s ‘Berlin Sneakers‘, Treasure Island Media’s ‘Sick Fucks‘, and Nasty Daddy’s ‘Ducati Breeds‘.
Also being announced later this month are the results of the 2017 Raven’s Eden Awards for which I received or am associated with a staggering ten nominations (including Best Fetish Star, Best Director, and Best Performer Blog!) – the winners will be announced on February 25th – so again, fingers crossed!
