LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce the return of Italian superstar Rocco Siffredi as host for the 2nd annual XBIZ Europa Awards, presented by ManyVids, sharing that glittering stage with award-winning performer Misha Cross, for adult’s biggest night in Europe.
The Europas are the crown jewel of XBIZ Berlin, the only trade show on the continent dedicated to uniting digital media players with content creators and performers, as well as connecting retail market leaders for deal-making and networking opportunities.
At last year’s packed-to-capacity ceremony, Cross won the coveted Best Actress trophy for her badass cowgirl role in Digital Playground’s “Rawhide.” And this decorated Polish beauty also directs titles for Evil Angel — much like her co-host — infusing hardcore sex with imaginatively sexy visuals galore. She also deftly pivots from juggling the complexities of traditional shoots to capturing the raw intimacy of her wild sex life on FanCentro and OnlyFans, with masterful indie flair.
“All I can say is that I’m extremely honored to be hosting the second XBIZ Europa Awards, hand-in-hand with Rocco Siffredi,” she enthused. “It’s a huge moment for me, as I will be standing on a stage as a grown-up, experienced adult star hosting one of the biggest events in the industry … and not so long ago, I was a girl who dreamed of merely getting nominated for anything. This is a significant milestone in my life.”
As for Siffredi, “The Italian Stallion” has starred in over 1,300 adult titles over the course of three decades, with numerous mainstream credits to his world-famous name as well. Known for his dominant swagger, auteur productions and fiery charisma, Siffredi’s movies are a top-performing channel on Adult Time thanks to their unbridled vigor.
“I am very, very pleased that XBIZ has chosen me for the second year!” stated Siffredi. “I am very happy to co-host the show with the beautiful superstar Misha Cross. I hope I can bring something even more personal and fun to the audience this year.
“One more thing I can definitely say, is I hope that through this award show, we can bring back what this business in Europe needs,” he continued, “professionalism on an A-level like in America. We have great talents and great producers also in Europe, so to bring them all together in one special event like this is definitely what the business needs.”
