'Upload' Gets 4th Major Award With XRCO Win

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — When SexZ Pictures' "Upload" took home the top prize of Best Epic at the 2008 X-Rated Critics Organization Awards, the science fiction sex thriller won the top movie prize in four straight 2008 major award shows including XBIZ, Adam Film World, AVN and now the coveted XRCO.

“It’s incredibly gratifying that the critics who make up the XRCO chose once again to recognize the hard work put in by everybody at SexZ Pictures on these big productions, not just the quality of the movie but the hard work that went into all the extras that make the four discs a nine-hour event,” "Upload director Eli Cross said. “We’re also extremely proud of Hillary Scott’s win for Best Analist, Eva Angelina; win for Best Actress, and I just want to thank the XRCO on behalf of all of us at SexZ."

SexZ.com CEO Bo Kenney was pleased that his company has now claimed the top prize two years in a row.

“We made a commitment to provide the porn fan with the most intense sexual action possible along with a compelling storyline and both 'Corruption' and 'Upload' fit that bill," Kenney said. "I want to thank the XRCO for these awards."

Made up of a few dozen veteran adult industry writers and reviewers throughout the world, the XRCO voting panel recognizes the best efforts put forth by the adult movie business in a number of key categories. The awards night is routinely recognized as one of the best adult industry parties of the year and the show at the Highlands nightclub was packed with a who’s who of adult cinema including a lively contingent from SexZ Pictures, including contract performer Hillary Scott. With the FAME Awards looming, fans can get in on the voting action and help "Upload" to a clean sweep by visiting the FAME Awards website to vote for "Upload" and Eli Cross for Best Director.
