The evening saw the company's hit Axel Braun franchise Wicked Fairy Tales earning two major accolades, beginning with Parody Release of the Year - Drama for the beguiling fantasy "Cinderella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody." The line's debut release, "Snow White XXX: An Axel Braun Parody," soon followed suit, earning a Best Actress - Parody Release trophy for its luminous star, Wicked Girl jessica drake.
