The porn industry recognition – AVN awards

They are called the “Oscars of porn”. The AVN Awards, or Adult Video News Awards, were hosted in January and who’s who of the industry showed up to grace this fun packed event. Of course the AVN’s are designed to give honor to the actors and actresses along with everyone else who had something to do with creating adult movies. But to be honest, they are not taking the ceremony all that serious, since it is all adult and everyone there is very well aware of the silliness that comes along with it. That’s probably the reason why the AVN’s are so fun and exciting to be a part of.

As few of you might know, the AVN’s have been around since 1984 and are usually hosted in mid January. There was a GayVN also but since 2010 it has been discontinued. AVN’s are always hosted during the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, and the show was thrown at The Joint in Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Paradise, Nevada. Hosted by webcam star Aspen Rae and reigning AVN Female Performer of the Year Riley Reid, the show was packed with fun, sex and good vibes.

Tanya TateTo be frank, the relevance of these awards is almost similar like the Oscars, but with no pretending to it. It is all about marketing ones porn avatar to the fans, so that they become more recognizable to the audience, hence make more opportunities in the industry later on. Back in 2013 porn actress Tanya Tate in an interview with the Huffington Post had this to say about the role of the AVN’s: “Being nominated for awards help build your recognition with your fan base. People that win male and female performer of the year are generally solid consistent talent that are open to many “levels”, and some of these performers already have higher basic rates than others.”

One thing that can be noticed with the AVN awards is that with each year new categories and new features arise. For instance, since the Internet became a major “distributor” of porn, today you have the award for best affiliate program, best dating site, membership website, solo webcam girl etc. It is obvious that the tides have shifted and the ceremony began to be longer and longer, just like the Oscars. Like anything in life this has bad and good sides to it, that are to be left for another debate.

As far as the actual awards go, movie “Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody” got the award for the best porn movie. The voting for the best movie is not chosen by the nominated pictures, but by the winners in the “Best Release” categories such as Best Anthology Movie, Best Drama, Best Parody Release and several others. Also, the voting is conducted just prior to the announcement of the movie of the year.

As far as the best female performer of the year goes, Adriana Chechik won and this was her first nomination. In the male category, the well endowed Mick Blue took the honors. Here is a list of the other winners that took home the hardware:

  • Best New Starlet: Holly Hendrix
  • Best Male Newcomer: Ricky Johnson
  • All-Girl Performer of the Year: Jenna Sativa
  • Transsexual Performer of the Year: Aubrey Kate
  • All-Girl Performer of the Year: Jenna Sativa
  • BBW Performer of the Year: Angel DeLuca
  • Female Foreign Performer of the Year: Misha Cross
  • Male Foreign Performer of the Year: Danny D.
  • Mainstream Star of the Year: Julia Ann
  • MILF Performer of the Year: Kendra Lust
  • Best Actress: Kleio Valentien in Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody
  • Best Actor: Xander Corvus in The Preacher’s Daughter
  • Best Supporting Actress: Joanna Angel in Cindy Queen of Hell
  • Best Supporting Actor: Brad Armstrong in The Preacherís Daughter
  • Director of the Year: Greg Lansky

For the rest, the night was just as entertaining since in this industry, there are no losers. The whole show was awesome, of course beer was running everywhere, so that loosened the vibe even more, regardless of it being an adult show. The only thing that was a bit unprofessional was the fact that it was 45 minutes late, but that is the flip side when alcohol is freely served.

Also the whole show flow was perfectly broken up by a hip hop group Rae Sremmurd, who took the stage beginning, middle and the end, so it gave it that MTV feel to it and it fit perfectly. The sex puns were plenty and the whole show lasted for about an hour and a half, which was long enough, just so that it doesn’t get boring, repetitive and all of the major awards were managed to be handed out. All in all it was a great show and AVN can expect many more to come in the future.
