When Tori Black, whom LAist first met last March, walked the red carpet at the XRCO Awards, she almost broke into tears when confiding to a nearby photographer friend about how hard she's worked this past year. And while she again lost to Stoya for New Starlet, her excitement at winning Cream Dream, against an impressive lineup that included Lexi Belle, Dakoda Brookes, Alexis Love, and Faye Reagan, was widely apparent.

According to Mark Kernes from AVN, "Attendees ran the gamut from newcomers to classics, including Faye Reagan, Ava Rose, Michelle Maylene, Alektra Blue, Alyssa Reese, Angelina Armani, Teagan Presley, Zoe Britton, Asa Akira, Ann Marie Rios, Brittany O'Connell, Lisa Ann, jessica drake, Jenna Haze, Shy Love, Darryl Hanah, Kylie Ireland, Magdalene St. Michaels, Kaylani Lei, Kagney Linn Karter, Kelly Skyline, Nikki Rhodes, Candace Nicole, Marie Luv, Dana DeArmond, Missy Stone, Aiden Starr, Shawna Lenee and Sunny Lane, while on the male side, we spotted Jack Lawrence, Chris Charming, Tom Byron, Dane Cross, CJ Wright, Dino Bravo, Ron Jeremy, Tommy Gunn, Evan Stone, James Bartholet, James Deen, Randy Spears, Pat Myne, Marcus London, Valentino, Thomas 'The Cos' Ward, Eric John and Hatman. Add in the directors and executives like Joy King, Dyanna Lauren, Bob Christian, Jules Jordan, Will Ryder, Joe Gallant, Eli Cross and Francois Clousot, and it was quite a party."

Kernes noted that "Humility was a hallmark of the evening, with James Deen, winner of the Male Performer of the Year award, stating, 'Thank you, but everybody else on that list is a much better performer than I am,' and Will Ryder, in accepting the Best Comedy - Parody award for Not Bewitched XXX, announcing, 'You know, some people have come up to us and said, 'Hey, Jeff, you guys started the parodies.' We appreciate that, but we didn't start [them].' Jenna Haze, on the other hand, was particularly jubilant at winning Female Performer of the Year, noting, 'I appreciate you guys liking all my cocksuckiness.'" And "Evan Stone... gave perhaps the longest acceptance speech, concluding with the admonition, 'Now I'll just let you drink, as long as you're able to drive...'"
