LOS ANGELES — Vivid Entertainment walked away with seven wins Thursday night for "Wetwork" at the 2015 XBIZ Awards Show at the J.W. Marriott at L.A. Live.

The sexy drama about  spies, international intrigue, assassins and prostitutes of every sort was honored as Feature Movie of the Year while Eli Cross was named Director of the Year and Steven St. Croix was picked as Best Actor in a Feature Movie for their work on the film.
Other XBIZ Awards went to Mark Logan for Screenplay of the Year; Nic Danger and Alex Ladd for Best Cinematography; the Vivid Studio for Best Art Direction; and to Robert April for Best Editing.

“The way the industry has changed, going in with a big, original feature you really feel like the underdog. We were up against a lot of great projects so it's fantastic to get the recognition in a field like that,” said director Cross.

“A lot of people really committed to this project, and put in an enormous amount of work; Penny Pax and Steven St. Croix each gave career-defining performances. The art direction by Kylie Ireland and Andy Appleton was subtle, incredibly meticulous and well thought-out, so it's gratifying for them to have gotten that award. I'm so grateful to XBiz for the accolades, and to everyone who worked on the film and gave it their all, but mostly to Marci and Steven Hirsch from Vivid, who've been behind this film 100 percent from Day One. They gave us the creative freedom and support to really create something special. Vivid has a legacy of releasing the best adult features in the world, and it’s very meaningful for Wetwork to be a part of that proud history,” Cross added.

St. Croix said he “really wasn’t expecting anything this year, so I’m humbled and grateful. I think it’s awesome that I won awards when I started in movies with Vivid many years ago and now, as they transition to the new adult market, I win again for one of their features.”
