STARS SHINE AT THE
2010 XRCO AWARDS
| ( HOLLYWOOD, CA ) - On a clear cool spring night in Hollywood , the brightest stars in the adult industry came out to shine for the 2010 XRCO Awards. For the 26th year, the X-Rated Critics Organization gathered to honor the best performers, movies and performances the world of adult films has to offer. |
Hosts Nikki Benz, Lisa Ann and Sean Michaels took to the stage and with the help of Heart-On Girls Chanel Preston and Angel Vain handed out over more than two dozen XRCO Awards to the very best in adult entertainment.
A big night for Will Ryder and X-Play began with a win for the hit comedy “Flight Attendants” as Best Release. Their parody “Not Married With Children XXX” was named the winner in the "Best Comedy or Parody" category, narrowly defeating Ryder's other hit "Not the Cosbys XXX" to win that honor. Both movies were directed by Will Ryder who rode the success of his comedies to capture the award as "Best Director: Features."
Two stars from “Married with Children XXX” also took home big awards. Eric Swiss who played Al Bundy in the parody won the XRCO Award for "Best Actor: Single Performance." Kagney Linn Karter who portrays the ditzy sexpot Kelly Bundy was named as "Best New Starlet."
Matching Ryder’s impressive night, Elegant Angel’s William H walked home with a pair of trophies. His “Big Wet Asses 15” was named as "Best Gonzo Movie," helping William H capture the "Best Director: Non-Features" award. Elegant Angel got another win in the "Best Ethnic Series" category for Big Black Wet Asses.
Tori Black capped her huge 2009 by taking home the award for "Female Performer of the Year." Having won virtually every award possible, the beautiful brunette adds the XRCO trophy to her impressive resume.
Evan Stone was doubly honored, collecting a win as "Male Performer of the Year" on the same night he was named to the "XRCO Hall of Fame."
Wicked Pictures’ “2040” was named as the "Best Epic for 2009." The futuristic adventure also featured a collection of bonus material that took home the award for "Most Outrageous DVD Extras."
Kimberly Kane added another award to her growing collection for her highly acclaimed performance in “The Sex Files: A Dark XXX Comedy” taking home the "Best Actress Single Performance" over a deep and talented field.
Super sexy superstar Bobbi Starr walked away with a pair of coveted awards. She was named "Orgasmic Oralist" for her notorious deep throat skills and "Superslut" for her volcanic on-screen energy.
Co-host Lisa Ann didn’t have a long walk to accept her award a "MILF of the Year." She beat out an impressive collection of cougars to take home top honors.
Industry veteran Tom Byron saw his Seasoned Players line take home the coveted “Best Gonzo Series” award. Girlfriends Films’ “Women Seeking Women” was named "Best Girl/Girl Series."
There was a rare tie for "Best POV Movie" as Mike John’s POV Pervert 11 and Jonni Darkko’s Jugg Fuckers 2 shared the title.
