TLA Raw is hosting their own little awards this year which they are calling “the smutties”. I pretty much figure they developed this award thing as a means to promote their own products. For example, they put in the best movie category POPPORN: The Guide to Making Fuck along side movies like Wicked’s 2040 and Digital Playground’s Teachers. I’m not saying Popporn’s movie isn’t okay but let’s be real here – not even close to being anything that can be considered in the same category as 2040 or Teachers.
They also listed their POPporn movie in the category of best sex comedy. And of course the director of that movie, Mike Quasar they nominated for best director and also in the category of best twitterer. Keep in mind he only tweets once or twice a day, and lately his tweets have mostly just been insults to others in the industry. Here is some of his insightful tweets that got him nominated for best tweeter.

Really that category should include stars who tweet all day long to their fans like Nikki Benz, Teagan Presley, Eva Angelina and Sunny Leone.
The biggest disappointment was however the category BEST FREAK OUT OF THE YEAR. They left out a few major freak outs which is of course Shawna Lenee’s well actually she’s had a few but I guess the biggest and most well known one would be on the Opie and Anthony show. Then they could add in Donny Long for one of many freak outs he has had this year and maybe even Chasey Lain in her battle with Donny Long.
They couldn’t be more obvious with that they are doing. Do they really think customers are so stupid that they won’t see through this very obvious and blatant attempt at self promotion? They could have at least pretended to put some effort into the categories.
Now all of this aside, you know what isn’t included? VIVID – one of the biggest studios out there – and while they may no longer be #1 they are still a major player in the adult industry. But TLA Raw completely disregards them and doesn’t nominate anything Vivid related in any category – movies, directors, porn stars – nothing.
Is there something going on behind the scenes that we don’t know about?
While it’s true that almost every awards show includes nominations of some kind for Wicked Pictures, Digital Playground and Vivid as a standard – maybe TLA Raw just didn’t agree. Could it really that the powers that be at TLA Raw found no Vivid product viable in any single category – no Vivid girl worthy, nor any Vivid director or movie??? Could it really be that innocent or is there something going on behind the scenes that we just don’t know about yet?
I guess only time will tell, or maybe we’ll get someone to leak us some information on what could be brewing behind the scenes between Vivid and these guys.
