"Recognition by XRCO means a great deal to everyone over at New Sensations," says St. James. "At the end of the day, our objective has always been to create the best possible films we can. Knowing that critics have appreciated, respected, and enjoyed our efforts makes our hard work that much more gratifying. On behalf of our entire company, thank you XRCO! We couldn't be more pleased with our nominations this year!"
Remy LaCroix, AVN Best Actress winner for her title role in The Temptation of Eve is joined by Penny Pax (The Submission of Emma Marx), Xander Corvus (The Temptation of Eve) and Richie Calhoun (The Submission of Emma Marx) in XRCO's Best Acting categories.
"Feature films, by nature, often require a lot more from the individual performer," said LaCroix. "The days are longer and the emotional commitment is higher, but when the end result is something as powerful as The Temptation of Eve, the reward is already there. I'm so glad that XRCO recognized this film in such a wide variety of categories. So many people worked so hard to make this film what it was. Having critics recognize that is an incredible feeling!"
