XBiz Announces Winners of 4th Annual Awards

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – The 4th Annual XBiz Awards rocked Hollywood, Calif., at the landmark Key Club on Sunset Boulevard, making award history and leaving behind a clear message that the adult industry is alive and kicking.

The standing-room only event celebrated some of the adult industry’s most innovative professionals, as chosen by their peers, across a wide spectrum of both online and offline adult products and services. Doors opened at 9:30 p.m. with a red-carpet reception, followed by the awards ceremony at 10:30 p.m.

Hustler’s Jim Henley hosted the evening and a raucous crowd cheered winners and nominees as industry players presented awards in 18 categories. The evening was capped off by a rocking performance by the band RUN as partygoers partied into the night.

In a first-ever statistical deadlock between two XBiz nominees, Mansion Productions (MPA3) and Too Much Media (NATS) broke even on the vote for Best Solution Provider, both averaging scores of 4.3325.

“It was an incredible night and an amazing turnout,” Alec Helmy, president of XBiz, said. “The tie between MPA3 and NATS was really a shocker for everyone, given that the judges scored them exactly the same. XBiz congratulates all the winners, and we’ll see you all again next year for another great round.”
