Recently, I went through all the titles I reviewed in 2012 (so far) and highlighted the ones that were nominated for XBIZ and/or AVN Awards – though not the only games in porn, a nod from either of these entities is a big deal.
But AVN and XBIZ aren’t perfect – nothing is, and that’s ok. There were a couple of instances where I went “Really? That..?” and there were a couple others where I went “Really? Why not This..?
Keeping in mind that I don’t have access to every single bit of porn out there, nor do I choose to write about everything I could (this is done very consciously), I feel compelled to draw attention to the fact that the following two titles may have been worth a nod.
UPDATE (later in the morning on 12/15/12): it just dawned on me that maybe one or both of these titles may not have even been submitted to AVN and/or XBIZ for awards nomination consideration, in which case they weren’t exactly “shut out” (hence, this post’s title change). Either way, I found both these films to be exceptional and – at the very least – nomination-worthy :)
