(HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- Just like the Hollywood director who wins the Golden Globes, the Hollywood Foreign press Association and then the Director’s Guild Awards before winning the Oscar, adult movie director Will Ryder is seeing the pieces of success fall into place on his way to Las Vegas and the AVN Awards.
XCritic.com just announced Ryder as their 2009 Director of the Year which came on the heels of CAVR also naming the X-Play director their 2009 Director of the Year. Earlier this fall NightMoves presented Ryder with their Lifetime Achievement Award and before that, XBIZ named him their 2009 Director of the Year for the movie not Bewitched XXX. That’s quite a blockbuster year by anyone’s standards.
This is all happening pretty damn fast,'' Ryder said as he prepared to fly to Las Vegas for the Adult Entertainment Expo and the AVN Awards where his X-Play production house has 32 nominations including Best Parody, Best Sex Comedy, Best Director and Director of the Year for a bevy of top-selling movies such as Flight Attendants, Not the Bradys XXX Marcia Marcia Marcia, Not Three’s Company XXX, Not Married with Children XXX, Not Monday Night Football XXX, This Ain’t the Partridge Family XXX and Not the Cosbys XXX.
''Who knows if we’ll win anything but it sure as hell is fun going,'' Ryder said. ''I can remember watching all of the great porn stars and directors some years back and just wondering if we could one day get up there and compete.''
In what is a bit of a surprise to Ryder, XCritic.com just named not the Cosbys XXX as the best movie of 2009 with their annual Top Ten Porn DVDs of 2009 list.
''Having an interracial movie with a black family win an award for the best porn movie of the year is amazing,'' Ryder rejoiced. I hope our Cosby Show spoof inspires blacks and whites to unite and get into each other’s pants especially while in Vegas. Jungle fever is a good kind of sickness.''
Along with production partner Scott David, Will Ryder and X-Play enjoy their status as a top-notch studio that has earned the respect and attention of others.
''I just saw an advertisement for Jules Jordan Video in AVN Magazine and it said in big bold print- ‘Parodies? Not Here. Only Serious Porn,'' Ryder laughed.
''Damn, they're a big-time company and that put a huge smile on my face because that’s a really impressive studio noticing that our movies are funny. At sitcums.com we don’t take ourselves too seriously because we like to laugh. We leave the serious porn to the others.''
Those in Las Vegas at the AEE are encouraged to have a fun time and attend two great porn industry parties that X-Play is co-hosting.
TV’s Greatest Parody Party will be a fun, relaxed laid-back porn mixer Friday, January 8th 10pm with industry friends, beautiful porn starlets, superstars, wannabees and sex-loving girls at Sugar Cane located inside Sushi Samba in the Venetian’s Pallazo Hotel on the 2nd floor above the casino. Porn stars will be admitted free and a limited amount of free VIP cards will be passed out by Scott David, Jeff Mullen, Brad Thomas and Porno Dan. Others will be admitted for only $25 at the door. Sponsors include Clips4Sale.com, Immoral Productions, X-Play and XCritic.
Then on Saturday, January 9th Pornstarville at Studio 54 in the MGM Hotel & Casino is the biggest adult industry party in Las Vegas and is expected to draw a virtual who’s who of the porn industry immediately following the AVN Awards Show.
Companies that have already purchased tables at Pornstarville read like a directory of the adult business and include Hustler Video, Elegant Angel, Pink Visuals, Bang Bros, Club Jenna, AEBN, Wicked Pictures, Girlfriends Films, Kick Ass Pictures, Reality Kings, Sweetheart Films, Immoral Productions, Cezar Capone, AVN Magazine, Devils Films, DVSX, Harmony, Magnus, Robert Hill, Shane’s World, West Coast Productions, Sitcums.com, Caballero, Northpole, Samtin, Anabolic, Metro Content, Kbeech, Pureplay, Acid Rain, Candyshop, Wildlife, Giggles, Dreamgirls, Realtouch, Tom Byron Pictures, Pleasure Productions, Exquisite, Juicy and All Media Play. The event is being thrown by IVD, Stockroom, X-Play, Erotech and XBIZ.
So win, lose or draw Will Ryder and X-Play are planning on having a great time leading up to the big AVN Awards Show. And just think, the XBIZ Awards and the XRCO Awards are right around the corner!
