The 6th Annual, * SL PORN * Group Movie Awards
1:00 PM SLT February 2017
In 2017 the Awards will include/invite ALL MOVIES that had notices put in * SL PORN * Group by their Director!!
So here's what happened, Katina Cazalet and I were chatting during James set at the beach party on Saturday as we normally do and the subject of this years Second Life Porn*Star Awards show and the Sexiest Awards came up. At this point no one knows if the Sexiest Awards will happen or if the Second Life Porn*Star Awards were it for the year.
And I said, "If the Sexiest Awards are no more, wouldn't it be nice if we could do a bigger awards show than just the 3 studios?"
At first it was more of a joke than a serious thought. Because to me having a bigger awards show just meant more work and more people unhappy with you. I have in most years been an opponent rather than an a proponent of how the sexiest awards were judged. The way they are judged is a group of people that largely know little to nothing about SL porn movies are assembled and split in to smaller groups and assigned categories and given criteria to judge them with.
Not the worst idea, but dang a lot of work!! and it mostly left them open to accusations that the whole process could be fixed. So the idea of duplicating that just was not appealing. So I said, "What if we could judge the bigger awards the same way we judged the 3 studio's awards, let the directors be judged by their peers". Okay 1 hurtle down.
How do we pick the movies? Do we have them nominated? If so how?
I never liked the idea of people paying to nominate themselves, yes I like money, but that just never felt right. Katina and I see and re-post a lot of movies, her on The Sexiest Pornstars Blog and I on this one. So how too track them all? I was open to having the movie pool come from both groups, but the movies need to be kept track of, we don't want movies nominated in multiple years and if they aren't tracked how do we know if they are or not.
So since we re-post all this groups Notices and then re-post all the movie and list them on this Blog it was decided to make eligible just the movies that had notices in this group by their directors. I do know Sexiest group gets more movie notice, than * SL PORN * but here they are all documented. Plus the Sexiest awards should they happen, are already restricted to members of that group. Hurtle 2 down
I have teamed up with Katina in producing these awards for several reasons.
She probably watches and reviews more movies that anyone in Second Life and her reviews are seldom negative but rather interesting and thought out with links to whatever tangent she is on. Her reviews make me want to watch the movies if I haddn't already, they are sometimes more entertaining than the movie it's self. Also she has some great ideas and most directors like and respect her knowing she will be as fair with them as she is when she reviews there movies.
More information will come, we are going to make more categories and think up some rules to make sure these awards can be as fair as possible. Directors will be sent ballots hopefully January 1st 2017 and be given a dead line to have them returned. We know all directors won't follow through and some may have left SL by then, but we will go on without them, they only hurt themselves by not returning their ballot by the deadline.
No need to contact Kat or myself with questions at this time, I'll post more information as we get deeper in the year, this is just to notify everyone that the awards are expanding and if directors want to have their movies eligible they have to be made and a notice posted in group, by the director, by Midnight on December 31st 2016.
Now get busy, only 10 month's left!!
