First off I’d like to send out some thanks. I’d like to thank Bill The Hobbyist and Master Gio for assisting me in setting up the awards. I’d also like to thank Cam4 for sponsoring our awards and finally, I’d like to thank Alison of Taboo for the awesome gift baskets for the winners! Without all of you, the awards wouldn’t have happened, or at least not to the level of awesomeness that they did! We look forward to making these an annual thing with them getting bigger and bigger each year!
The first category up was Cam Girl of the Year, which was won by the stunning Hailey Morgan. Hailey is an awesome, down to earth, fun, cute cam girl who is a great follower on Twitter where she posts pics of herself and is just fun to chat with. She’s also a self-proclaimed ‘CERTIFIED orgasm donor’. She definitely lives up to that title. She always pleases her cam viewers and puts on a great show too! Make sure to follow Hailey on Twitter and be sure to check out her cam shows too!
Our second category was Starlet of the Year, which was a very tough category. Many gorgeous and deserving ladies were entered, but in the end, Bonnie Rotten walked away with the honor. As a 19 year old, Bonnie is way ahead of her time as far as maturity and pose. She is also featured in our DVD of the Year, ‘Meet Bonnie’, which received rave reviews from everyone who’s watched it. In every scene of hers that I’ve watched, she always gives 100% and I believe she is going to go far in the industry. She’s worked with many top porn companies such as New Sensations, Evil Angel, Brazzers, and Diabolic. With a gorgeous body and a personality to match, you’re going to see this cutie on your screen for years to come! Check her out on Twitter, and for more info, be sure to check out her site as well.
Next up was our Performer of the Year category, which, like the Starlet category, was stacked full of gorgeous and deserving ladies, but Juelz Ventura ended up grabbing this honor. Juelz appeared in 12 films in 2012, such as Jerkoff Material 9, Anal Plungers, Lesbian Sex 5 and many others. As of 2012, she’s been nominated for 4 AVN awards and has walked away with 2, Best Oral Sex Scene and Most Outrageous Sex Scene for her scenes in American Cocksucking Sluts. Juelz is another gorgeous woman that gives 100% in each of her scenes and is one you’ll be seeing plenty more of! Make sure to check her out on Twitter!
Studio of the Year was won by Dirty Diablos, an awesome company out of South Florida. I don’t think I’ve seen a Dirty Diablos flick that hasn’t included a gorgeous inked lady. They produce quality porn and feature gorgeous inked ladies such as Christy Mack, Bonnie Rotten, Coco Ono Velvett, Sparky Sin Claire, and many more. In 2013, they released Diablos Ink’d Vol. 3, which featured Angel Vain, Emma Mae, Sparky Sin Claire and cover girl, Stevie Shae. Winning this award is a big achievement considering they were up against powerhouse Joanna Angel and Burning Angel. Make sure to follow Dirty Diablos on Twitter for updates and check out their site for more gorgeous inked ladies!
Next we had two categories running concurrently, one of them being the Achievement Award, which went to Taboo. Taboo is a sex shop owned by Alison Barber and is located in Richmond, Virginia. What makes this store unique is that Alison has her ‘Taboo Girls’ which are her employees and are all gorgeous inked vixens. A big part of the marketing of her store uses these Taboo Girls, whether it’s in ads, in their yearly calendar or for hosting events. In December, a second Taboo shop was opened in Richmond as the original business turned 10 years old. If you’re ever in the Richmond area, we highly recommend stopping by Taboo and checking out their amazing selection of toys, DVDs, lingerie and many more adult novelties, as well as the gorgeous Taboo girls! Follow Taboo on Twitter and check out their site for locations and contact info!
The other category was DVD of the Year, which not surprisingly, was won by ‘Meet Bonnie’ by Digital Sins. The film was destined to be great when creative and talented director Eddie Powell teamed up with fast-rising starlet Bonnie Rotten to create ‘Meet Bonnie’. I have honestly not seen one bad review for this flick as it has received one positive review after another. This is one of those movies that only come out every so often. Make sure to follow director Eddie Powell on Twitter, as well as New Sensations/Digital Sins Twitter account for updates on upcoming releases. You can also check out New Sensations’ website for more exclusive content.
Our last award was for Feature of the Year, which was won by the stunning Catherine Tayler. All the ladies who had won the Feature of the Month contest each month in 2012 were entered in this contest and there was some pretty stiff competition as you can imagine. Catherine is a gorgeous web cam model who also runs her own website where you can get exclusive material which includes videos, photos, live shows and merchandise. Make sure to check out this busty Canadian on her cam shows when you get a chance or on her site.
Well, that concludes our 2012 Inked Awards wrap-up. We are looking forward to bringing you the 2013 Inked Awards, but with a few changes. This year we will be assembling a voting panel of well-respected and knowledgeable voters to decide the winners. We’re also adding the category of Director of the Year along with the 7 categories we had last year. We’re hoping to be able to announce the winners live on our Inked Angels’ Live radio show. Thanks again to everyone who helped out with last year’s Inked Awards!
