Elegant Angel Earns 6 XRCO Awards Noms

CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Elegant Angel has received six nominations for the 2014 XRCO Awards, the studio has announced.

Among the nominated titles are “Performers of the Year 2013” for Best Release, signature series “Big Wet Asses” and “Gangbanged” and “Battle of the Asses 5” for Best Gonzo Series, and Carlos Dee’s “Let Me Suck You” for Best POV series.

“We’re honored to be nominated by the X-Rated Critics Organization, and are always very proud of the hard work, creativity, and commitment our directors, talent, and editors put into all of Elegant Angel’s projects,” said Elegant Angel head Jim Crawford. “All I can add is… keep watching. You won’t want to miss what’s coming.”

“Let Me Suck You” marked cinematographer Carlos Dee’s (“Wasteland”) directorial debut for Elegant Angel. “I’m really grateful for the recognition,” Dee said. “I cut my teeth with ‘Let Me Suck You.’ The series taught me discipline; it helped make me a better director. When you shoot POV, viewers expect to have a vicarious experience through your camera. You have to learn control and how be creative to give them what they want. I appreciate this acknowledgement, and thank everyone at XRCO.”

“I’m thrilled for Elegant Angel and am so excited to see ‘Gangbanged’ nominated for Best Gonzo Series,” said Asa Akira, director of “Gangbanged 6.” “I made my directorial debut with the series last summer, and feel honored to be a part of it.”

Akira is also up for awards in three performer categories: Female Performer of the Year, Superslut, and Orgasmic Analist.
