XRCO Releases Nominations Video With Array of Stars

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—As part of the ramp-up to its 38th annual awards show in less than two week, the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) has released its now yearly nominations video featuring a plethora of top adult stars announcing all of the contenders for 2022 XRCO Awards glory.

"This video idea started in 2020 as our stay-at-home answer to COVID," XRCO chairman Dirty Bob explained. "Now, two years later in 2022 this is our third video, and we are immensely proud of these video clips sent in to us by many dozens of performers. This project has since evolved into a very popular and well-received new tradition and yearly release announcement showcasing the XRCO nominees, and the nearly 100 percent positive response we have received when asking adult stars and legends to participate shows the dedication and love that these people have for the industry." 

Narrated by Tanya Tate, this year's video also includes appearances by 2022 XRCO Awards co-host Bridgette B.; reigning AVN Female Performer of the Year, Best New Starlet and Best Male Newcomer (respectively) Gianna Dior, Blake Blossom and Anton Harden; AVN Hall of Famers Jewel De'Nyle, Keisha, Alexandra Silk, Luc Wylder, Misty Stone, Charlotte Stokely and Will Ryder, and many others.

"This year I was stunned by the exceptional ideas, high quality, and fun and originality that went into everyone's video," Dirty Bob added. "We even had submissions from overseas. One girl spent three days in NYC filming a 'scavenger hunt' in search of the XRCO noms for her category. One of our co-hosts made a game show skit. Another made it like an audition tape to get into Harvard. There were bikini scenes poolside. Sexy playful bedroom scenes. And much more! The fun will be watching what everyone made (by and featuring themselves) when let loose with just a category and list of nominees for that category—with no restrictions!"

The 47-minute video, which will also be on display throughout the XRCO Awards Show May 5, can be viewed below or at XRCO.com.
