HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – With the first XBIZ Hollywood Conference coming to a close earlier in the day, the 5th Annual XBIZ Awards provided a glamorous and decadent nightcap to the blockbuster show.

With the line to stroll across the red carpet stretching the length of the complex, an eager throng of photographers and interviewers were on hand to capture the moment. A crew from Playboy TV was a popular interview destination for many attendees.
