LOS ANGELES — Director/performer Dana Vespoli received six nominations for the 2014 XBIZ Awards on Jan. 24 at Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, Calif.
Vespoli is nominated twice for Director of the Year, in both the Body of Work and the Non-Feature Release category for her groundbreaking "Girl/Boy" (Dana Vespoli/Evil Angel). That title also earned her a nomination for Gonzo Release of the Year, while "She’s Come Undone" (Dana Vespoli/Evil Angel) earned her a nod for All-Girl Release of the Year.
She also has a nomination for Best Scene – Non-Feature Release: Jiz Lee and Manuel Ferrara in "Girl/Boy" (Dana Vespoli/Evil Angel), as well as MILF Performer of the Year.
“I am so, so pleased with the nominations,” Vespoli said. “'Girl/Boy' and 'She’s Come Undone' are two movies I feel really passionate about, so it’s very satisfying to see them receive some recognition."
This year has unquestionably been the breakout year for Vespoli as a director. She made her debut for Evil Angel this year and every feature she has shot has received an Editor’s Choice review, and all of her releases have been enthusiastically received. She has shown that viewers will embrace adult fare even when wrapped in a more cerebral package than is typical so long as the content is passionate.
Her next release will be "Borders of Desire" (Dana Vespoli/Evil Angel), part of which she recently shot in Berlin, which streets Dec. 4. She also just wrapped the latest installment of Sweetheart's "Girls Kissing Girls," which stars Casey Calvert, Lily Love, Lia Lor, Alina Li, Sinn Sage, Claire Robbins and Vicki Chase. She starts work on her next Evil Angel movie in mid-December.
Her movie "Lesbian Adventures: Older Women Younger Girls 3" (Sweetheart Video) is No. 2 on the HotMovies VOD Chart.
