DeAngelo Jackson Becomes the First Black Adult Film Performer To Win ‘Best Actor’ At The GayVN Awards

DeAngelo Jackson Becomes the First Black Adult Film Performer To Win ‘Best Actor’ At The GayVN Awards

The 2020 GayVN Awards were held on Monday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and it was quite the gay affair.

Performers, directors, producers and fans of adult entertainment came out to celebrate and hand out trophies at the event that’s been called “the Oscars of Gay Porn.”

Alec Mapa returned to hosting duties alongside new co-host, comedienne and TV host Nicole Byer. There was also musical entertainment by King Princess and a special performance by Alyssa Edwards.

At the event, Dallas Steele – who was nominated for Best Group Sex Scene and Favorite Daddy – reportedly said that he feels the event helps to de-stigmatize the porn industry.

“You look around at all these beautiful, well-dressed people,” said Steele. “If my mom were still around I’d be proud to have her here. I think it’s incredibly positive about our industry.”

Some history was made when DeAngelo Jackson became the first Black performer to take home the trophy for Best Actor for his work in Blended Family.

Cade Maddox won for Performer of the Year.

Among the winners was also Rhyheim Shabazz, who took home the fan award for Hottest Newcomer.

    DeAngelo won best actor?
    How????
    I mean, I kinda like watching DeAngelo because I like muscles on men, but he’s not all that na. There’s several actors I can reel off the top of my head that are better than him in every regard.

    Shaa, I agree with Cade Maddox’s win.
    And Rhyheim Shabazz’s.
    I mean, nigga came outta nowhere to become like a demigod in the industry.

    PS: I’m low-key hoping for some magic to happen between him and Armond Rizzo. That picture they took at the event was all kinds of sizzling. If they do a video together, they’d be making me and a lot of other people out there very very very happy.

      My dear, this one finish me. He’s beautiful, very muscular and all that, but “BEST ACTOR”?

      Believe me, my dick almost goes limp if I stumble on his video when I’m wanking to different videos in a porn collection. He’s too passive (like the very passive kind of passive) when he fucks, and worse when he’s fucked.

      Eeew!

      Next customer, please!

    Deangelo is interesting to look at, but he’s not that great a performer biko. He’s even kinda dull. But yay to diversity. If Rhyheim was not on the newcomer nomination list, he should win that award. That guy came and seized the world of porn in a storm. We were so not ready for him.
    And as for Cade Maddox, I often say he fucks like a black man. That man is such a porn god.
