"Blood + Kisses" wins Best Picture in Vegas!

After the third and final screening of the movie today, we hung out, watched a number of films, ate steak and eggs for breakfast, and gambled. Boz, on a lucky streak after all his raffle winnings, came away from the slots with a whopping $2.50 in winnings.

In the afternoon, we went to the awards presentation, nervous and excited. This was, after all, the first public screening of the movie and, given the fact that it's pretty damn provocative, we knew it wasn't for all tastes. In fact, we wouldn't have it any other way.

So as they were giving away awards, Boz and I sat and watched other films walking away with all the prizes. Shit. How could we be shut out? We knew we had the coolest movie. Where else are you going to see such an amazing group of female bodies starring in such a funky, ballsy, guilty pleasure of a movie. Then they got to the final award, the Best Feature Film, and they called out "Blood and Kisses" and... what a rush... almost a year's worth of work and an entire week of non-stop work to prepare for this festival (Mia and I working day and night on the sound; Denise and Barbara putting the one-sheet together) and then this. The payoff. The first of many for all of us.

Next stop. Fangoria.
