XBIZ Awards 2010: Red Carpet & Media Room
Male Acting Performance of the Year winner Evan Stone and nominee Tommy Gunn in the Media Room at XBIZ Awards 2010
Continued from Part One.
"WOW what an honor to win both AVN's Best Actress and now the XBiz Awards Best Actress," blogged Female Acting Performance of the Year winner Kimberly Kane. "I guess some where down the line I didn't make the VIP/Guest List Cut... Huh? Yeah. I wasn't on the list to get into the soiree. Ok, so ticketless I slipped into the party like a crasher and past the front guards undetected... and let me tell you this place was PACKED! I mean, the whole adult industry was there and EVERY single dude in a 10 mile radius was there too wearing their best Affliction blazers... Anyways, I squeezed through the crowd and made my way over to the VIP area. The ONLY area with floor access to the stage. I couldn't get in it of course, because I'm a 'party crasher' so I repeatedly attempted to fix the issue, telling anyone with a walkie talkie 'But Xbiz TOLD me to be here!' finally, after doing this 5 or 20 times I gave up. I walked out to the freezing cold Red Carpet area to take this 'I WAS THERE' photo. I am SUPER happy I won. But I wish I could have been there to except my award properly."
However, the following day, Kane reported that "... I spoke to XBiz this morning and they're getting to the bottom of last nights 'hiccup' and they're being super cool to me. I'm going to the office on Monday to pick up my award. 'All's well that ends well.'"
The full list of winners after the jump.
