LAS VEGAS—Last weekend was the sixth annual Tranny Awards, held in Glendale, California, and Michelle Austin came home victorious. The adult performer was nominated for Best Internet Personality, Best Solo Site and the Voluptuous Diva award. On Sunday, Austin took home the Voluptuous Diva Award.
Austin was very emotional after winning her award. As she accepted her award on stage with a packed house applauding her, Austin said, “I’ve never won anything ever and to have been nominated for three years and have it finally happen!” She also thanked many people, including Grooby, for being one of the only transsexual porn studios to give her a chance.
“This award is dedicated to every girl who ever heard the word “No!” Don’t take no for an answer and if no company will shoot you, I will,” Austin said.
The night was full of of great moments, with Austin helping Rupaul’s Drag Race star Jujubee with hosting duties and interviewing the winners backstage. She got to talk to most of all the award winners after they accepted their awards.
Austin also mentioned in her speech that she will be retiring from in front of camera but will be producing some great new things in the future. When asked what she thought of winning, Austin said, “I am honored to win the first award dedicated to thicker/curvy Tgirls of porn. I have worked hard to create something great for fans of thicker tgirls, since most companies don’t shoot them. It was very emotional for me and really didn’t think I was going to win because I have lost in the past for awards. This award just solidifies that I am doing something right and that my industry has accepted me. Thanks to Grooby and everyone who nominated me and the judges who voted for me!”
