James Deen as a host

The evening of January 15th in downtown L.A. was met with an event attended by everyone who's anyone in the adult entertainment industry. Performers and directors alike were excited, nervous and in party-mode as they rolled down the red carpet, showing off their party dresses and suits. What I found to be most interesting is that, unlike most red carpet functions in L.A, this was comprised of a fun-loving bunch of people; the atmosphere was relaxed and informal, albeit with a distinctly nervous edge most noticeable among the nominees and the first ever male host of the Awards, the legendary James Deen.

As mentioned before, adult film superstar and crossover sensation, James Deen was the one who presided over the events, crowning the winners in over 160 categories across every segment of the adult industry (video, pleasure products and online entertainment). The celebrations began a little after 10:00 pm (PST) and, after being introduced by Dani Daniels, Jessa Rhodes, Maddy O’Reilly and Keisha Grey, Deen took over as the laidback host of the 2015 edition of the Xbiz Awards Show.

Axel Braun

Things kicked off to a lively start with the presentation of the two parody award winners (for Drama and Comedy) Axel Braun and Will Ryder, for their work in “Cinderella XXX” and “Not the Jersey Boys XXX” respectively. The presentation was done by MILF sensations Lisa Ann and Vicki Vette.

The first pleasure product award, for Innovative Sex Toy, went to Fleshlight’s “LaunchPAD” (Design) and Revel Body’s “SOL Sonic Vibrator” (Technology).

Manuel Ferrara and Kayden Kross

Kayden Kross and Misha Cross won the Best Girl-Girl Sex Scene award for “Misha Cross Wide Open”, which was presented to Kayden only by Alektra Blue and Tanya Tate since Misha was in Europe and couldn't be present.

Kayden Kross soon returned to the podium with partner Manuel Ferrara; porn's most glamorous couple presented Adult Site of the Year to AdultEmpire.com (VOD) and Cam4.com (Live Cam) before being both named Director of the Year in the Non-Feature Release category for co-directing “Misha Cross Wide Open”.

Adriana Chechik

Best Scene in a Non-Feature release went to Adriana Chechik and five men for “Gangbang Me" from Hard X—an already legendary triple-anal sex scene. Chechik went to the podium with three of her male co-stars to gladly receive her prize.

The most celebrated awards given were for Kendra Lust in MILF Performer of the Year, Carter Cruise also got plenty of cheers in her win for the competitive Best New Starlet award; but the announcement that raised the roof was Director of the Year, an honor given to Jacky St James in the Body of Work category. Yet another popular choice was Female Performer of the Year, bestowed on Annika Albrite who thanked husband Mick Blue and agent Mark Spiegler on the poduim.

A couple of surprises were intersped with all the award winning going on. At one point, with no introduction, the screens announced a “Tribute to Christian Mann”; the much-loved porn excecutive who died last year after a valiant battle with cancer; it was received in respectful silence by an otherwise lively star-studded crowd. There was also a fundraiser hosted by Free Speech Coalition (FSC) CEO Diane Duke and the Association of Site Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) Executive Director Tim Henning.

The celebrations ended with all of the Xbiz Award winners flashing across the video screens. Congratulations to all of the 2015 winners, the complete list of which is as follows:
