Thoughts on Awards Shows + xBiz Nomination list

Its awards season throughout the industry so I suspect this will be my first of many blogs I will post about nominations, and later awards, that some of the projects we have been involved in have garnered. These accolades include – but are not limited to – xBiz, Xcritic and the AVN Awards. And yes, this is one part shameless gloating, one part promotion and 2 parts patting ourselves on the back for a lot of hard work and a job well done.

That being said, I want to thank everyone who worked so hard with us on these (and many other) projects. An award-winning movie does not just happen. It is a culmination of months of planning, a company that believes in the project enough to back it, good casting and a core team of people working together in harmony (most of the time) with a common goal of creating the best possible product. All to often the praise goes to those that are in the public eye and those on the crew get overlooked or forgotten, especially in the adult business where there are no awards categories for some of the people who put in the longest hours. Lighting technicians, sound engineers, production managers and production assistants are included in this list. In more recent years categories honoring other facets in the production end of adult movies have been added; Makeup and Hair, Editing, Screenplay, Special Effects, Publicity and Set Design to name a few.

I guess what I am trying to say is that when a movie wins an award, even when a project gets nominated, it is an honor to be shared by the entire cast and crew, pre and post production…for each person is an intricate cog in the machine of movie magic. Even if the project is a porn movie.

Tonight we will be attending the xBiz Awards. The nominations listed below are only for the specific projects that we have worked on. If I went through the entire nominations categories and listed my congratulations and wishes for good luck for every person and company I know, am friends with, have worked with over the years or that I believe deserves the nomination or win…well, I would be writing this blog until next Thursday.

(I will update this blog after tonight’s event. Wish us luck!)

Thank you everyone at xBiz for your nominations. It is an honor.
