PALMDALE, Calif. — Adult performers Sean Michaels and Olivia O’Lovely will host the 1st annual Urban Spice Awards on June 8. The new awards show celebrates and showcases ethnic adult performers and ethnic productions.

“I am really looking forward to this. I think the show is going be awesome," O'Lovely said. "It is something that has been long overdue."

“I am proud to be a part of The Urban Spice Awards,” Michaels said, calling the awards a "one-of-a-kind event."

The awards will be taped live at Platinum Live, at 11345 Ventura Blvd. in Studio City, Calif. The show will have a red-carpet entrance, VIP seating and dinner service, live entertainment and audience participation. The show will feature the most influential names in urban and ethnic adult movies.

“I'm a director myself," event founder Giana Taylor told XBIZ, "and there are a lot of good, talented people making product who don't get recognized. That's why I started these awards."

Nominations for the Urban Spice Awards are due April 15. Full details, including categories, can be found at the Urban Spice Awards website.

Sponsors for the awards include Metro Interactive, Hot Movies, Mercenary Pictures, TT Boy Productions/Evasive Angles, CJ Wright Productions and MVP Entertainment. The official media sponsors are XBIZ and XFANZ.
