A message From Emmanuelle.
In the interest of fairness, organizers, or group owners WILL NOT be entering any categories ourselves.
However, I don’t think it’s fair for us to stop a co-star or cast member from our productions entering.
So I hope you will believe that any movie we were involved in will be treated fairly. And, more importantly, that any of your movies will be treated fairly too.
We will try to be as fair as we can be.
We’ll also try to be as professional as possible. But if we do get something wrong, please remember that we’re all people with real lives doing our best.
Also, no sniping and snarking about the results. No pouting. Pouting isn’t sexy and even Santa doesn’t like it :)
Potentially 40 people will walk away with a award statue as Nominee's, and a huge sense of achievement. The winners i hope will be viewed by all as very worthy, and representing a snapshot of the very best on our Second Life Porn scene in 2013.
And the final rule…
Just have fun darn it!
