First, let me thank Emanuelle Jameson for coming up with the idea and working so hard to produce the first awards program for the SL Adult Film community. She did a wonderful job and has been a true inspiration to the entire community with her creativity, enthusiasm, and kindness.
You can read about the winners here ---> http://jennnnnajameson.blogspot.com/2011/01/and-the-sexiest-winners-are.html
Let me also thank the Judges, who worked a lot of hours watching a lot of porn (harder than it sounds). Each of them gave of their time and did a wonderful job in giving their honest evaluation of each movie in each category. I can assure you that they were all fair and impartial, and none of them were "bought" or "gotten to" as a couple of people have implied.
For those of you who don't like the job I did managing the judging, YOU handle it next time and give up nominating your own movies as I did (which was very unfair to Candace, since she did an outstanding job in my opinion and deserved as much recognition as any other actress). Candace, you will ALWAYS be my Best Actress!
Thank you to all the nominees! The movies were all very good and deserving of recognition and they should all be proud of the work they have produced, even if it didn't win an award.
Now... the drama.
Sore losers... sour grapes... whiney little bitches...
I was very disappointed, but unfortunately not surprised, when the bitching started even before the ceremony was over. Crying and whining and moaning about unfairness and pouting and quitting the group all smacks of immaturity and unprofessionalism.
Did you ever stop to think that maybe you didn't deserve to win? That maybe someone else created a better movie? Duh! Suck that ego in for a moment and let that thought sink in. I'll wait.
Do you want to win an award? Then work hard and be innovative and try to improve and add something new to the community. Otherwise just don't enter your movie. Then no one can tell you that you aren't the best.
In other words, "Grow Up." No one likes a sore loser. This community is sick of the whining and drama.
To end on a positive note, I would like to quote some of the comments the judges made. I will not say which judge said what, but I think you should all hear what they had to say.
"Great combination of picture and music. I've never seen someone playback in SL before!"
"A talkie! And what a great voice that narrator has. Great movie!"
"The video-editing is awesome. Brilliant! The images tell the story."
"The voice makes the movie, great idea."
"Thin story but a nice dialogue at times. Hot!"
"Lovely movie, nice storyline, good work!"
And next year's will be even better.
