PHILADELPHIA—TLA RAW, one of the largest online and direct mail DVD and VOD entertainment retailers in the country, has announced the winners of the 2010 TLA RAW Awards. The TLA RAW Awards is a new, annual awards program that honors the best in straight adult entertainment and sex toys, as well as cult and skinema films from 2009.
The winners can be found here. Nominations were determined by the TLA RAW staff. Winners were selected via a polling of TLA customers and fans.
“We had over 16 thousand individual voters and the competition was pretty stiff. However, when it was all said and done, we were pretty surprised at how well we agreed with the results. Honestly, any of the nominees could have won, each would have been a valid winner, but the customers and fans have spoken.” said Brian Sokel, TLA RAW Managing Director.
Belladonna, who won both Best Porn Movie and Sickest Porn of the Year said, "I really would have liked to win Performer of the Year (Male), but I guess James Deen deserves it more than I do. I'm happy with the two awards I've won. Thank you TLA RAW!"
Director Lee Roy Myers, who directed Best Porn Parody winner, New Sensations’ Seinfeld: A XXX Parody, said, “It is an absolute honor to have won best parody for Seinfeld - A XXX Parody. And for it to be from TLA RAW—the folks that put the ‘fucking’ in ‘awesome fucking online porn store’— makes it a mega-fucking honor.”
“I am really happy,” remarked Joanna Angel, who won Best Starlet Blog. “TLA RAW broke my award losing streak! Thank you!”
Of his award for Best Sex Comedy with Couples Camp, Jonathan Morgan said, “I am very thankful to have won this award, and that voters found Couples Camp just as funny watching it as I did shooting it. I hope I can do it again next year."
“It is truly an honor to receive this most prestigious yet pointless award,” said Zero Tolerance contract director Mike Quasar, often called the Susan Lucci of the porn world. “I don't believe that voting for myself over 1700 times makes me any less deserving. Unfortunately I must now shop for a trophy case as this is my first award of any kind."
