Open Life's Hard X, Erotica X Receive Five XBIZ Awards Nominations
MONTREAL — Featuring the work of producer/director Mason, Hard X and Erotica X have combined for five award nominations for the 2014 XBIZ Awards, including Gonzo Release of the Year and All-Sex Release of the Year.
The debut title from each studio is up for Release of the Year and Scene of the Year nominations. Hard X’s “Anikka,” featuring blonde bombshell Anikka Albrite’s first anal scenes is nominated in the gonzo category, while its scene with Anikka and Mick Blue is also honored. Erotica X’s film “Eternal Passion” is competing in the All-Sex release field with its scene between Mia Malkova and Danny Mountain up against the “Anikka” scene.
Mason, who is nominated for Director of the Year for a non-feature release, remarked, “I'm grateful to be a part of O.L. and thankful for XBIZ recognizing both the Hard X and Erotica X studios. I'm happy to see the girls getting the recognition they received, because without them, none of this would be possible.”
