Vanna Bardot and others win XRCO Awards.

2024 XRCO Award Winners Announced

The critics have spoken!

XRCO (X-Rated Critics Organization) announced its award winners in a star-studded awards ceremony Sunday night. Celebrating its 40th year, the annual bash honors industry stars and movies who stood as the best of the best for their year. Check out our list of highlight winners!

Best Release

Influence‘s own influence has been substantial, ranging from dominance on AE’s sales charts to a bevy of awards at XBIZ and AVN alike. Its reign continues with a win in XRCO’s biggest movie category. Directed by Derek Dozer, Influence spotlights Vanna Bardot (herself a big winner last night) in a whopping five anal scenes, including her first one ever. So epic is the movie’s action, it is spread across two discs in its DVD incarnation.


Best Gonzo Movie

It’s appropriate that a movie honoring award-level stars would itself capture a major award. Elegant Angel’s renaissance continues with a spectacular new edition of one of its most beloved series.”At Elegant Angel, we love to celebrate the performer, and our annual Performers of the Year showcase films allow us to do just that: celebrate the best of the best!” the company noted upon the movie’s release.


Best Anal Series

Anal Savages

Anal is one of the most popular categories in porn, so the competition for this particular prize is fierce. Jules Jordan, one of the biggest and most influential names in porn, knows the genre quite literally inside and out, making Anal Savages a master class of the form. Another Jordan-directed series, Breast Worship, won Best Gonzo Series.

Trans Performer of the Year
