LOS ANGELES—Monarchy Distribution, the diverse production company started in January, 2012 by adult industry veteran Mike Kulich has received its first nominations from the Tampa-based NightMoves award show.

Monarchy has been nominated twice for Best All Sex/Gonzo release with its titles Asses For The Masses and Superstars. They also have scored a nomination for Best Transsexual Release on their debut Tranny Factory Studios title Tranny Hookups.

"It is exciting to see all of our hard work being recognized by our industry," said Kulich. "I think the most humbling thing is in the Best All Sex/Gonzo category. We are nominated twice and we are going up against longtime players like Vivid, Evil Angel and Elegant Angel. These are studios that helped shape this industry and it is an honor to have our titles looped into the same category as them."

Monarchy has expanded rapidly since its January launch. They currently have eight lines including Assence Films, OGEE Studios, Tranny Factory, Penetrator Pictures, BrandXXX, Black Storm Pictures, Double Team Studios, and Pajama Party Entertainment, all of which are releasing new titles every month.
