Francesca Le & Mark Wood Honored with 8 Noms for Production & Performance!
LeWood Productions, helmed by the husband / wife co-director team of Mark Wood and Francesca Le and distributed by Evil Angel Video, have received four nominations for the 2014 AVN Awards. The couple earned an additional four nominations in performer categories, bringing their total to eight. Taking place at The Joint in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 18, 2014, the AVN Awards celebrates the best of the best in the adult entertainment.
“Thank you, AVN, for these nominations!” says Francesca Le. “It’s certainly wonderful when professional critics bestow their praise. It inspires us to keep making our brand of movies, and we’re very happy to have Evil Angel at our side to make them available to our fans.”
“We love performing on the rougher side of things, and our fans are extremely loyal to our line,” says Mark Wood. “Being able to perform with top-notch talent, and to be able to work with them in the kinky way we do, is something very special to both myself and Francesca, as well as our fans. It allows us to work and play at the same time, which is amazing. We’re thrilled the critics agree, and we thank AVN for these nominations.”
Best Anal Series nominee The LeWood Anal Hazing Crew features Mark and Francesca portraying evil swingers who get off on making young ladies submit to their perverted lust. The series has received rave reviews from critics from the very first release. Of Volume 2, Adult DVD Talk reviewer Captain Jack enthusiastically proclaims, “What happens when a hazing goes so deliciously right? You get this release from the production house of LeWood…an extremely volcanic, hot, explosive, sexy, and any other good adjective you can think of, DVD…this one got up to 150mph from the opening credits and didn’t stop until the end.”
LeWood also received a Best Ethnic Release (Latin) nod from AVN, for Butthole Barrio Bitches 2. Francesca introduces Mark to a bevy of south-of-the-border sluts, who all want nothing more than to feel her well-hung partner’s big, hard cock up their culos. Of the series, Adult DVD Talk reviewer D-Man gave the Butthole Barrio Bitches series 4.5 out of 5 stars, proclaiming, “Smoking hot Latinas and anal sex…it sounds like a good combo, and it certainly works with this DVD. Heck, I’m sort of jealous of Mark Wood here, banging three gorgeous mamacitas.”
The DVD release recognitions continue with a Best Gonzo Release nomination for Remy LaCroix’s Anal Cabo Weekend. The couple’s performance as horny tour guides in the Mexican resort city for their gorgeous, new plaything – the adorably perky young beauty, Remy LaCroix (named Best New Starlet by AVN in 2013), led to record-breaking sales for LeWood. XCritic reviewer Don Houston endorsed the release as a Highly Recommended title and predicted the nomination early, saying “This should be in the collection of every Remy LaCroix fan…check this one out to see her in a whole new light, breathing life into the true gonzo style of production out of favor these days for cheaper methods of shooting. In short…(it) brought out the best in all three of the performers, the amount of quality Remy LaCroix fuck for the buck truly outstanding. I will be highly surprised if this does not garner serious award interest later this year, Mark and Francesca bringing out the best Remy has to offer.”
For nearly three decades, the AVN Awards show, dubbed “the Oscars of adult” by Entertainment Weekly, has been the adult industry’s biggest night and the award itself, the industry’s highest honor. With a stylish red carpet pre-show and lavish star-studded ceremony, AVN celebrates outstanding achievements in “the business of pleasure.”
