(August 3rd, 2009
Giana Taylor producer
of the recent Urban X Awards, responds to the press release that Jeff Mullen
director of “Not The Cosby’s XXX” sent out about being snubbed by the Urban X
“It really upsets me
to read such stories such as the one released about the “Not The Cosbys XXX” not
being nominated. The reason I am upset is because I put out press releases about
the nomination deadlines, and I even extended them two times to give companies
more time to submit movies.
For Jeff Mullen to put
a negative story out such as the one he put out is just very disrespectful to
me, as the founder of Urban X Awards,
and to his cast, to make them think that we would intentionally leave such a
big movie out of the nominations” stated Taylor.
“Just like the AVN and
XBIZ Awards, “which we have high regards for”, there is a certain nomination
period in which you must submit your movies to be nominated. I want everyone to
know for the record, that Jeff Mullen, had not submitted that project for
nomination. We don’t like to have any negative press on an event such as this,
which everyone really enjoyed, went very well, and was well received."
To the cast of “Not
the Cosbys XXX”, please contact the folks responsible for submitting that movie
for dropping the ball and not submitting it for nominations.
We have a lot of
respect for the work that Mr. Mullen and his production company does, he
attended our awards program this year, and we hope that next year he would
consider submitting projects to us on time, we would be very happy to include
them” added Taylor.
