CHICAGO — The 2008 Grabby Awards were held Saturday night at the Park West Theater in Chicago, hosted by Chi Chi LaRue and Honey West.

Also onstage to help with the presentation: Raging Stallion exclusive Jake Deckard, TitanMen exclusive Dean Flynn, as well as Trevor Knight, and customary “trophy studs” slots were filled by Jet Set’s Aaron James, Rascal Video’s Blake Riley, COLT Man Ricky Parks and Hot House’s Ross Hurston.

It turned out to be a big year for ties, with multiple winners being honored in several categories.

Best Actor honors went to both Jason Ridge for his performance in “A Rising Star,” produced for his own Ridgeline Films, and Erik Rhodes in Falcon Studio’s “Ivy League.”

The coveted Best Newcomer award also was split between Raging Stallion exclusive Steve Cruz and Rascal exclusive Blake Riley.

The Best Performer category was a toss up for the judges, who gave double honors to Jake Deckard and Jason Ridge.
