HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Adult performers Kayden Kross and Dylan Ryder graced the stage last month at the 2012 XRCO Awards where they played hostess to the annual industry-only party and helped pay tribute to the best and brightest in adult entertainment for 2011.

The 28th Annual XRCO Awards Show was held on Thursday April 12 at The Hollywood Highlands and featured a number of memorable moments.

"XRCO was a blast as always," Kross said. "Dylan Ryder was a great co-host and the night was relaxed and fun. I always look forward to it."

In a change from past tradition, the XRCO Hall of Fame inductions kicked off the evening.

"Mike Moz suggested that we change things up a bit and do the Hall of Fame at the beginning of the show rather than midstream during the evening, and this worked quite well," XRCO Chairman Dirty Bob said. "I was quite pleased that most of the 'Hall of Fame' inductees were able to attend in person and accept their award. Just seeing their heartfelt gratitude and happiness when they were inducted makes the entire evening, and all of the year-long work involved making it happen, worthwhile.

"Of course we want to thank our great and loyal sponsors, especially Wicked Pictures who has been a strong supporter and sponsor of the show every year for over 15 years," Dirty Bob said. "Without Wicked's help it would be difficult giving such a great night back to the industry by helping with this annual industry-only party and awards show. We are also very grateful to our new 2012 sponsors as well: Smash Pictures, Jules Jordan Productions, Axel Braun Productions, X-Play, our fine publicity group Pipeline Multimedia, and of course, I.A.F.D. and Deep Throat Energy Drink which has been with us for the last few years."

Big individual winners this year included India Summer, who won two awards including MILF of the Year, and Asa Akira who was named both Superslut and Female Performer of the Year.

Her movie "Asa Akira is Insatiable 2" from Elegant Angel was named Best Gonzo Movie of the Year as well.

It was an equally big night for Elegant Angel. In addition to the win for "Asa Akira is Insatiable 2" the powerhouse production company also scored wins for their title "Portrait of a Call Girl." The movie was named Best Epic and scored hardware for its lead actress Jessie Andrews and director, Graham Travis for Best Actress and Best Director, Feature.

"I'm very honored to receive the awards from XRCO for 'Portrait Of A Call Girl,'" Travis said. "To receive this recognition from such a historic organization of critics means so much to me and the whole team who did such an amazing job on this movie. Thank you XRCO."
