Awards Season – XBiz 2018


XBiz held their annual awards show on January 18th. This year the big multiple award winner was the dark Half His Age: A Teenage Tragedy, along with Half His Age director Bree Olsen. Half His Age won Best Feature Release, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. Bree Olsen won Best Director of the Year- Features for her Pure Taboo, and Olsen won Best Director for her body of work. It was a very big night for Bree.  Director Greg Lansky, who cleaned up at least year’s awards, also did well this year, with Best Vignette Series of the Year and Best Director- Non-Feature Release. It was also a very good night for Wicked, with eight wins.

One of my faves, Brandi Love, did well with two awards, MILF Performer of the Year and Best Actress in an All-Girl Release. The prolific Joanna Angel also had a great night, with Best Sex Scene for Jews Love Black Cock as did her husband, Small Hands, 

We link the movies to Adult Empire as they have streaming clips and lots of pics for each movie.
