The annual Urban X Awards celebrates the best and brightest “ethnic” performers, producers, directors, and releases of 2012 and the list of this year’s winners is truly a who’s-who of African American, Latin, and Asian porn. (Well, the made-in-America kind anyway.)
Although Mr. Pink’s favorite ebony fuck-goddess (and the co-host of this year’s awards), Nyomi Banxxx, failed to score any trophies, plenty of other ace performers went home very happy. Skin Diamond not only walked away with Female Performer of the Year, Leilani Leeane won Rising Star Female (a well deserved award if ever there was one), and Jada Stevens proved an invaluable white girl by scoring Interracial Star of the Year for her multitude of black-in-white anal and DP scenes. As for the guys, Prince Yahshua proved himself fully recovered from a nasty on-set injury that seemed certain to prematurely end his career just two short years ago by being crowned Male Performer of the Year and Best Anal Sex Scene (with Kagney Linn Karter for Prince the Penetrator).
Japanese-American superstar, Asa Akira, took home another two trophies to add to her quickly growing collection – she already won seven AVNs this year alone – this time winning Best Asian Series for Asa Akira is Insatiable and Best Asian Release for said series’ second installment, which also scored director Mason a Best Director: Gonzo award.
The real winners, however, are the fans and… HOLY SHIT! Is that Gianna Michaels? Where the hell has she been? I thought she retired! Screw the Urban X winners, Gianna Michael’s back, baby!
