The 2022 XRCO Awards got their first ever tie with the Female Performer of the Year award. Both Emily Willis and Gianna Dior got the prize, in the show that was hosted by Bridgette B and Alexis Fawx. The big winner of the night was the Vixen Media Group, with a ton of awards.
Ever since the start of the XRCO (X-Rated Critics Organization) Awards in 1993, there has never been a tie before for Female Performer of the Year. That is, until now. Both Emily Willis and Gianna Dior got the honor to receive this award. Both girls got their own series for the Vixen Media Group (Influence and Psychosexual). It’s something which also comes back in the 2022 XRCO Awards. Psychosexual got the award for Best Release, while Influence took home the award for Star Showcase.
The XRCO tie for Female Performer of the Year is an oddly great reflection of other porn award shows. Emily Willis won this award at the 2022 XBIZ Awards, while Gianna Dior did the same at the AVN Awards of this year.
It’s not the only tie at this year’s XRCO Awards. “Dredd” and “Blacked Raw” both won the Best Ongoing Blended Series. Dante Colle and Tommy Pistol had the same thing going on in the Best Actor category. Both starred in Casey: A Love Story.
