XBiz Awards Nominations 2015: An Introduction and Errata

Xbiz 15 Cat- Directing (1)

So begins awards season, and so begins our coverage of same with our annotated lists of nominees; annotated by virtue of we link to the people and titles that have garnered nominations this season.

In reviewing these lists, we are shocked by their scope  and magnitude, and we also manage to find some errors along the way. Statistically speaking, the percentage is infetesimal – but to our data-obsessed minds, they’re still erroneous.

So, the errata:

Best Scene, Couples Themed Release, Siri and Steven St. Croix get the nod for Rekindling the Flame when that scene does not actually exist and St. Croix isn’t in the movie.  Siri is paired with Richie Calhoun.

Best Scene, Feature Movie: Stoya and Rocco get the nod for carnal capering in Voracious Season Two, Vol 4 … but their scene was actually in Volume 3.

So really, two errors in 800+ nominations isn’t so bad… unless you’re Richie Calhoun, I guess….

And now some stats.  Assuming the database summed things correctly, the most honored performers are:

  1. James Deen, 9 noms
  2. Xander Corvus, 9 noms
  3. Carter Cruise, 7 noms
  4. Steven St. Croix, 6 noms
  5. Tommy Gunn, 6 noms
  6. Tommy Pistol, 6 noms
  7. Seth Gamble, 5 noms
  8. Tyler Nixon, 5 noms
  9. Skin Diamond, 5 noms
  10. Annika Albrite, 5 noms

And the movies leading the pack are:

  1. Wetwork, 14 noms
  2. Apocalypse X, 13 noms
  3. Second Chances, 12 noms
  4. Aftermath, 12 noms
  5. Voracious: Season Two, Volume Four, 11 noms
  6. Killers, 10 noms
  7. American Hustle XXX: A Parody, 10 noms
  8. Gardener, 9 noms
