HOLLYWOOD, CA — The X-Rated Critics Organization is proud to announce its host and hostesses for the 2010 XRCO Awards. Adult entertainment superstars Nikki Benz and Lisa Ann will join the legendary Sean Michaels on stage at the Highlands Nightclub in Hollywood on April 29th to host the gala event.
“I am so honored to be chosen as one of the hostesses,” says Nikki. “On a night where the top journalists in our industry honor the very best, I get to be right in the middle of it!”
The addition of Sean Michaels puts a living legend on stage between two beautiful women, a position he surely will not mind. “Sean Michaels is a true legend in this business. He’s incredibly poised, suave, and well-spoken and we look forward to seeing him host the XRCO Awards,” says Karen Stagliano of Evil Angel. “Evil Angel’s Buttman Magazine Choice is thrilled to be his distributor.”
“XRCO was the first event I ever attended in the Industry, to now be hosting; momentous!” exclaims an excited Lisa Ann. “Getting to do anything with Nikki Benz is totally awesome and Sean Michaels will make us look so amazing! See you there!!!”
This years show marks the 26th XRCO Awards and organizers knew that they had to do something spectacular to top last year’s silver anniversary show.
“Last year’s show was a huge success,” says XRCO’s Dirty Bob. “We knew we needed something special to kick off our next twenty five years. What better way to do it than to invite two of the industry’s leading ladies in Nikki Benz and Lisa Ann and have them flank one of the biggest, in more ways than one, male performers; XRCO Hall of Famer Sean Michaels?”
Industry and press are invited to join Nikki Benz, Lisa Ann & Sean Michaels for the 26th Annual XRCO Award Show on April 29th at the Highlands in Hollywood.
Founded in 1984, the XRCO was formed to give writers and editors from the adult entertainment industry a voice in selecting the best in and brightest in the world of adult cinema. Original members included a small group of writers from Los Angeles, New York and Philadelphia. Over the years, select and qualified membership has expanded to include some of the best adult reviewers from both print and internet. In 2005, the XRCO welcomed its first European members. 2009 marked a quarter century of excellence with the XRCO’s Silver Anniversary.
