‘Mick Loves Anikka’ Wins Gonzo Release of the Year at 2017 XBIZ Awards
VENICE, CA – Mick Blue is making his annual trek to Las Vegas this week for the Adult Entertainment Expo and it, along with the 2017 AVN Awards, promises to be another memorable trip for him. Even if none of his 35 nominations turn into trophies he will still have an unforgettable moment: He will be inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame.
He is certainly deserving: he has won dozens of awards, many of them from AVN, including Male Performer of the Year at the last two AVN Awards shows.
“This is something, I am so proud, I barely know what to say,” Mick said. “It is such a dream to come to America and to have worked so hard and found so much success. I’m very grateful for all the opportunities over the years, way too many people to name everyone, and thankful to AVN for this incredible honor.”
Mick received two big awards at the 2017 XBIZ Awards held at the Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles last week. The award for Gonzo Release of the Year went to Mick Loves Anikka (BAM Visions/Evil Angel), the 20th BAM Visions release and the biggest movie the company has released to date and the first time Mick and Anikka had ever directed a movie together.
“That movie took us a year to put together,” Mick said. “It was very special for both of us and we were thrilled that so many people were able to enjoy it. I don’t think either of us have ever worked on a project that was more important to us personally, so it was a true labor of love.”
Mick and Anikka also won Best Sex Scene – Feature Release for their work with Sara Luvv in Babysitting the Baumgartners. The movie was Adam & Eve’s biggest production of 2016, based on the book by Selena Kitt and directed by Kay Brandt. It was a rare opportunity for the real-life couple to work together as an on-screen couple in a major feature movie.
“Shooting Babysitting the Baumgartners was very intense for me, it was very demanding, but it was worth it,” Mick said. “It was a fantastic movie and I always love the opportunity to work with Anikka. I think our love for each other helped us in our roles for this great movie.”
