"'Body Heat was the one movie I really cried for -- real tears -- so I think that says something. I worked with an acting coach with this specific script. I didn't feel like I was doing porn, I felt like I was playing a role,'" Female Acting Performance of the Year winner Kayden Kross revealed.

"'I put a lot of work into researching Johnny Depp's character in Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. I watched the movie again and again, trying to get down his characteristics. A lot of people just said it came naturally to me. I put myself into the role. And I'm already a zany character. Working with [Sasha Grey] was really good. She helped me raise my game so much. I learned a lot from Sasha,'" Male Acting Performance of the Year winner Keni Styles explained.

As for Director of the Year - Body of Work winner Lee Roy Myers, he declared, "'I really love my job. I love directing, writing and producing, and the people I get to work with. I literally get to work with my best friends every day on my shoots. How can you beat that? My crew made me. I'd be nothing without them.'"

The full list of winners after the jump.
