Jonathan Morgan's epic sci-fi spoof Space Nuts led the way with six awards, followed closely by Michael Raven's stylish noir fantasy Beautiful, which won four - including Best Video Feature.
Beautiful scored strongly in the other major categories as well, garnering Best Director Video and Best Screenplay Video trophies for Raven, and a much deserved Best Actress Video award for headlining Wicked Girl Julia Ann. Space Nuts' six wins included a Best Sex Comedy statue for director Morgan, who has dominated this category for three of the last four years.
