Grabby Awards Nominators Give Manville’s ‘Twinky & the Bear 2’ Pair Of Noms

VAN NUYS, Calif.—Manville Entertainment has good reason to be proud of its latest parody release, Twinky and the Bear 2: More Beary Gay XXX Tales: It's received two nominations for the 2017 Grabby Awards for Best Art Direction and Steamworks Fan Favorite.

The Adult Erotic Gay Video Awards (better known as the Grabby Awards, or The Grabbys) are presented annually in Chicago to honor work done in the gay adult erotic video industry. The Grabbys is run by Grab magazine, Chicago’s premier LGBT publication, and continues the annual tradition of celebrating the best in the gay adult entertainment industry.

 “It is an incredible honor to have a movie recognized by the highly respected Grabby Awards,” stated Manville Entertainment executive producer, writer, and director Austin. “A great deal of love and care goes into each project, and recognition for both Art Direction and Steamworks Fan Favorite is truly gratifying. And credit has to go to my partner-in-creative-crime, Jock Rollins.”

The Steamworks Fan Favorite award is sponsored by Steamworks, a premier private men’s gym, sauna, and bathhouse, with locations in Chicago, Toronto, Berkeley, Seattle, and Vancouver. Fans may vote for Twinky and the Bear 2 as a Fan Favorite at the Steamworks Baths site here.

The 2017 Grabby Awards will be held Saturday, May 27, in Chicago. Tickets for the event go on sale April 7; for more information, visit

Written and directed by Austin, Twinky and the Bear 2 revisits the original 2014 theme of hairy muscle bears paired with smooth, sexy twinks, this time in vignette form. The twinks are Alex Killborn, Ian Levine, Levi Jaxx, and Josh Stone, with Damon Andros, Aarin Asker, Christian Matthews, Bryce Barrington, and Doug Jeffries as the studs.
