HOLLYWOOD — The winners of the 27th annual X-Rated Critics Organization Awards Show were announced on Wednesday night at The Highlands nightclub in Hollywood.

Elegant Angel came away the big winner of the evening, taking home three XRCO Awards for their productions, including Best Release (“Pornstar Superheroes”), Best Gonzo Movie (“Tori Black is Pretty Filthy 2”) and Best Gonzo Series ("Big Wet Asses").

The “Big Wet Asses” series has captured the award for “Best Gonzo Movie” or “Best Gonzo Series” four years in a row, an XRCO record. Meanwhile Elegant Angel director William H. was named “Best Director: Non Features."

Tori Black, who was not in attendance, won her second straight Female Performer of the Year, while Manuel Ferrara was named Male Performer of the Year while also being inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame.

Xander Corvus was named best New Stud, while two women shared the honor of New Starlet, Allie Haze and Chanel Preston in a tie.

Other individual award winners included Charley Chase (Unsung Siren), Mark Ashley (Unsung Swordsman), Tara Lynn Foxx (Cream Dream), Kristina Rose (Superslut), Jenna Haze (Orgasmic Oralist), Bobbi Starr (Orgasmic Analist), Julia Ann (MILF of the Year) and Digital Playground contract performer Riley Steele for Mainstream Adult Media Favorite.

Wicked Pictures also collected multiple awards starting with Best Epic for “Speed.” The movie also garnered the honor for Most Outrageous DVD Extras, and helped Wicked’s Brad Armstrong win Best Director: Features honors.

New Sensations/Digital Sin swept the individual movie awards, scoring wins in both the comedy and drama categories. “The Big Lebowski: A XXX Parody” was named as the top parody comedy while “The Sex Files 2: A Dark XXX Parody” got the trophy for top drama.

Axel Braun, fresh off wrapping "Spider-man XXX" for Vivid, picked up the award for “Best Director: Parody” for his body of work. Kimberly Kane was named Best Actress for her lead role in "Sex Files 2" while Evan Stone walked away with another Best Actor award for his work.

Evil Angel, Jules Jordan Video and Girlfriends Films all picked up wins for Best Series. “Women Seeking Women” grabbed top all-girl honors for a second year in a row. “POV Pervert” from Jules Jordan Video and director Mike John was named “Best POV Series.” And Jonni Darkko’s “Asian Fucking Nation” line won the award for “Best Ethnic Series.”

The XRCO took a moment of silence to honor those who were lost this past year including John Leslie and the recently departed Hunter Bryce.

The 2011 Hall of Fame class included some of the biggest names in adult entertainment including Juli Ashton, Jessica Drake and Ferrara. Also honored were Rayveness, Aurora Snow and starlet turned industry leader Tricia Devereaux.

“The votes in a few of the categories were incredibly close,” XRCO’s Dirty Bob said. "We are careful that there is no question that the winners were the overall choice of the hard-working members of the X-Rated Critics Organization."
