Angelina Armani Not Eligible for Best NEW Starlet?

I’m annoyed.  I hate when people set rules then don’t bother to follow them and today that includes Angelina Armani and her people.  I think they should yank her nomination and bitch slap her suitcase pimp / boyfriend for fraudulently submitting her nomination in the first place.  You know he is the one who submitted her pre-nom and you know he did so knowing she didn’t qualify.

Angelina Armani does not meet the qualifications for the award she was nominated for!


I was at the AVN Awards website today after seeing a tweet that said that for a movie to qualify for an AVN 2010 nomination it must be in retail stores by September 30, 2009.  It make sense then that similar deadlines for all categories.  So basically the time period would be from October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009.  Anything that takes place between those dates qualifies for the eligibility period for the category in question.  Anything before or after doesn’t count.

Angelina Armani entered the adult business in late 2007.  She didn’t really do much but according to a biography her own PR people wrote shows she first came into the business in late 2007 and became more active by mid-2008 and signed on to be a Digital Playground contract girl in October of 2008 – the beginning of the eligibility for the AVN 2010 qualification for best NEW starlet.

Angelina Armani decided to make the leap into Adult.   A brief flirtation in late 2007 with porn soured Armani on the industry. In mid-2008 the blonde made a second attempt, this time Armani fully committed to the job and with a new look, she began attracting a lot of attention and was steadily booked by her then agency (Type9 Models).

However prior to signing with Digital Playground in October of 2008 she had already had been in the industry making movies, making her qualify for the nomination for AVN 2009 Best New Starlet had anyone bothered to submit her nomination, which apparently nobody did.

By the time she signed with Digital Playground she had already done work for Hustler, Shane’s World, Digital Sin, New Sensations, and Lethal Hardcore.  So she isn’t a NEW starlet in 2010.  Sure she may just be getting more popular but that doesn’t change the fact that she isn’t NEW.  She began performing in 2007.  Do all of these movies not fucking count?  And if not, why the fuck don’t they?

So since she clearly doesn’t mean the qualifications, shouldn’t she be disqualified?  Shouldn’t the award go to someone who actually meets the qualifications?

For Immediate Release: November 30th, 2009

(Hollywood, CA) 2009 will be remembered by Angelina Armani as the year where she began to make an incredible impact on the industry she loves. Starting the year off as a Digital Playground contract girl, Armani took part in some of their highest profile DVDs of the year, including the massive hit “Teachers”, in which Armani was featured in two sex scenes. After she and the company parted ways, the Brooklyn born beauty pressed forward doing print work, on-camera interviews and more before delving deep into her own sexuality and returning to performing with some of the hottest sex scenes of her short career. The cumulative effort by Angelina has propelled her into XXX stardom, making her one of the brightest new stars to recently enter adult entertainment. By making such an impact it became only natural that Armani was chosen by Adult Video News as one of their Best New Starlet nominees for the annual awards.

“I’m very much honored that AVN would take me into consideration for one of their most prestigious awards,” said Armani. “I would like to think that my sex scenes along with all the other work that I have been doing, appearing on AVNlive.com, getting involved with the Free Speech Coalition, trying to make a positive impact on adult entertainment, have all led me to this path. I thank AVN for noticing and nominating me.”

The 2010 AVN Award show takes place in Las Vegas at the Pearl Theatre located in the Palms Casino, January 9th. Tickets for the show and more info can be found on the official website of the AVN Awards; http://avnawards.avn.com.

Armani already has a history of sorts in regards to the AVN Awards. For the 2009 show the golden haired beauty was acted as a trophy girl for the event. “It was an amazing feeling to be on the stage of the AVN Awards. Hopefully this year I’ll be on it again,” said Angelina

In other Angelina news, the 5’10 beauty is following up her smash hit for Elegant Angel, the appropriately titled “Starlets”, with another DVD for Elegant, “Porn Star Workout 2”. The anticipated DVD features the ultra-sexy Armani in yet another scorching hot sex scene the stunning model-esque beauty is known for.

Angelina Armani, nominated for AVN’s Best New Starlet! The countdown has begun to January 9th!

It’s Gary Miller from AVN Gossip Time Boys and Girls

I heard a juicy little rumor tonight.  Although I don’t have all the details, I will keep digging until I find more.  What I’ve heard so far is about Gary Miller.  Do you know who he is?   Well you should.  He’s the man that produces the AVN Awards Show.   I don’t know how true it is, but from what I hear if you want your hot little porn star ass on stage during the awards show each year, he’s the man to kiss up to.

So the rumor I hear is that he’s heading up a new production company out in LA.  I don’t know many details about it yet, or even the name of the studio but I hear he is also working with two other big names and that their movies will rival that of the big boys like Vivid, Wicked Pictures and Digital Playground.

I hear they have already begun production on a Charlie’s Angels XXX Parody.

The exact quote I was given by an unnamed source “This new company is going to be huge.   The people involved are all really strong on their own, very well knowns and talented people but together they will be an unstoppable force.”  I asked this person to go on record and talk about it more but he or she says they can’t at this time.  They are contractually obligated to keep quiet, at least for now.

I’ll let you know the second I find out more and I am promised some behind the scenes shots from the set of one of their movies as well.

skinworXXX Has 10 AVN Award Nominations to be Thankful For This Holiday Season

Freshman Adult Production Company skinworXXX Earns 10 Nominations for the 2010 AVN Awards


(November 25, 2009 – Atlanta, GA) Upstart adult production company skinworXXX doesn’t like to do things small, and the results of their first two movies, the all-girl superstar vehicle Sun Goddess: Malibu and their high-gloss all-sex hit Deviance, have shown that. So it’s an honor to the company, which is co-owned by adult superstars Teagan Presley and Eva Angelina, along with founder/director Joshua, to be nominated an impressive 10 times for the 2010 AVN Awards. It’s a feat and accomplishment skinworXXX is truly thankful for this Thanksgiving!

Sun Goddess: Malibu, skinworXXX’s first-ever movie starred Presley, Adam & Eve contract star Bree Olson, Gianna Lynn and crossover sensation Sasha Grey, and earned three nominations. The movie’s all-girl finale with a sex scene between the four beauties has been nominated for “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene,” while Sasha’s sultry romp earned her a selection for “Best Solo Sex Scene.” The website and online marketing effort behind the movie also received a nomination for “Best On-Line Marketing Campaign – Individual Project.”

Deviance, which was Eva Angelina’s comeback vehicle after a year-long hiatus, received identical honors for its marketing campaign, as well as a nod given to that movie’s all-girl finale that featured stars Teagan, Eva and fellow superstars Sunny Leone and Alexis Texas. Eva also received two more nominations for “Best Tease Performance” and “Best Double Penetration Sex Scene” for her ménage à trois with Marco Banderas and Ben English. Shawna Lenee earned herself a “Best Solo Sex Scene” nom for her sexy performance. Perhaps the biggest honor for the movie was the film earning a nod amongst porn’s elite as the “Best High End All-Sex Release” — a testament to the vision of director Joshua and the incredible camera work by Director of Photography, B. Skow. skinworXXX was also nominated as “Best New Video Production Company” — an honor that highlights an incredible first year in the biz.

Company co-owner Teagan also received a nomination for “Best Solo Sex Scene” for her solo romp in Not the Brady’s XXX: Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! capping off an incredible month for the fan favorite that saw her releasing her iPhone application “iTeagan” and most importantly, being named the newest contract star for Adam & Eve Pictures, who also exclusively distribute all of skinworXXX’s titles.

“For me, this is about the biggest honor I can have,” reflected director/CEO Joshua. “To get 10 AVN nominations for skinworXXX in our first year is an honor. It’s more than we could have ever anticipated and is the culmination of the hard work of so many. This will hopefully just be a great beginning, and next year we are going try to set the bar even higher for ourselves. It’s a cliché, but it truly is just an honor to be nominated.”

“I’ve always been a contract girl, and to be able see a vision I shared with Joshua and Eva turn into something this big is very special,” Teagan added. “It is even a little extra special to have such a huge success with Joshua, who is not only my business partner, but my partner in life. I am excited to see what 2010 holds for skinworXXX, and for my new start with Adam & Eve Pictures as a contract star.”

The 2010 AVN Awards, hosted by Kayden Kross and Kirsten Price, will be held in the Pearl Theatre at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, January 9, 2010. A full list of nominees and ticket information is available at www.avnawards.com.

These 10 nominations are just 10 of the many things skinworXXX is thankful for this weekend!

Amateur District nabs 2 noms

I’m going to spend the next month or so giving you guys free video clips, movie trailers and photos from the 2010 AVN Awards nominated movies.    I mean sure, I could tell you all day long about this nomination or that one, but wouldn’t you rather see photos from those movies or even better, short video clips of it?  That’s what I thought!  I’m going to start with Amateur District.

Our friends over at Amateur District got two AVN nominations this year. The first was a nomination for “Best Amateur Series” for their line of movies called My First XXX Video. The second nomination they got was for the “Best Amateur Release” for their movie True Home Made Amateur 4.

True Home Made Amateur 4True Home Made Amateur 4

Here is the trailer for the Amateur District movie, True Home Made Amateur 4.

In addition here are some photos and a short clip from the movie featuring Katrina.

And here we have some more photos and another short video clip from the movie but from another scene, this one featuring a chick named Brandy.

Amateur District was formed in 2006 and their first release was Absolute Asses.  In that time they have racked up a total of 6 AVN Award nominations.  In 2008 AVN nominated them for Best Amateur Release for their movie Amateur POV.  They also got a nomination for that same movie in the category Best Pro-Am Release.  In 2009 their AVN noms were for Best Amateur Release for the movie True Home Made Amateur 3 and Best Amateur Series, True Home Made Amateur.  And in 2010 again the companies nominations were for Best Amateur Series, My 1st XXX video, and Best Amateur Release for True Home Made Amateur 4.

The AVN 2010 Nominations are out

AVN released the 2010 award nominations today.  The full list is here but I wanted to point out some interesting notes about some of the nominations .  Every year when the list comes out there are some issues people have with at least some of them and well this year is no different.  First let’s talk about best new starlet.

Best New Starlet

  • Asa Akira
  • Britney Amber
  • Angelina Armani
  • Kiara Diane
  • Kagney Linn Karter
  • London Keyes
  • Tanner Mayes
  • Nicole Ray
  • Emy Reyes
  • Natalia Rossi
  • Aryana Starr
  • Riley Steele
  • Janie Summers
  • Brynn Tyler
  • Sadie West

There are some obvious noobs on this list and well since it is an award honoring noobs, that makes sense but one name stands out and that is Angelina Armani.  Why is she on this list?  She was in attendance at the AVN 2009 awards with Digital Playground as their contract star and if I remember correctly, she even had a movie out then so if she was “new” then wouldn’t she have been a new starlet a year ago?

I get that her boyfriend / suitcase pimp is her manager / PR man and wants to see her get nominated for something but fuck seriously, best NEW starlet?  Ummm ok.


Best New Web Starlet

  • Raven Alexis
  • Lexi Belle
  • Molly Cavelli
  • Katie Cummings
  • Lupe Fuentes
  • Clara G
  • Sasha Grey
  • Angelica Heart
  • Jayden Jaymes
  • Kayden420
  • Kayden Kross
  • Tory Lane
  • Jiz Lee
  • Priya Rai
  • Angelina Valentine

I’m confused on this category.  Best “NEW” Web Starlet?  Priya Rai, Tory Lane, Sasha Grey and Lupe Fuentes and Kayden Kross have been around a long time.  They are anything but NEW.  I’m so fucking confused on this one all together.  This has to be a typo or something.

Fuck going through this list I realize there is a lot of crazy shit I will want to go on and on about in the coming weeks so I’ll will be making multiple posts.

Worst year for Vivid? AVN Awards in Review

What a crazy fucked up night it was.  The awards show was just out there.  Lots of unexpected wins.  I think that Stoya winning best new starlet was one of those WTF moments for me.  But what stuck out the most was not who was winning awards but who wasn’t and that was Vivid.  With a tiny few exceptions most notably in the area of Monique Alexander, who recently left Vivid, they won almost no awards this year.  Could this be their worst year ever as far as awards go?  I know they’ve had a rough year but damn that’s just not like them to not go home with at least 80 of the 125 awards AVN gives out each year.  Okay I may be stretching it but it is quite unusual to go award after award after award without hearing the phrase “Vivid Entertainment”.  This was defiantly the year of Digital Playground but Wicked held its own as well.

The big winner obviously was Pirates II.  It was nominated for 30 awards, 15 of which it actually won.  But the best part of the night had to come from Jenna Haze who proudly proclaimed —

I will spread my legs forever in this fucking business for you—this is just the beginning of my sluttiness.

Big Lights Big City … The Stars Shine in Vegas

Mark your calendar’s my friends because if you aren’t in Las Vegas on the night of January 10th you will want to smack the fuck out of yourself for missing the best party of your life.  Each and every year the big names in the business head out to Vegas for the annual convention.  It is during this show that the stars sign autographs and take photos with their fans and even in some cases party with them.  Such is the case of what has become an annual tradition, with a party called Pornstarville.

Basically fans and friends of the fabulous and famous porn stars we have all come to know and love can attend a very special event.  Every year after the AVN Award show all the stars and industry big whigs head out to the after party and that is where you need to be if you want to hang out and do Jello shots with your favorite porn stars.  Pornstarville 2009 will be held at Studio 54, no not the New York one, this Studio 54 is MGM Grand’s hottest nightspot.  This is a red carpet event.  That means that your favorite stars will be walking down the red carpet getting their pictures taken before entering the club.   How fucking great is that?  I”m told Red Carpet services are provided by XBIZ, but truth but told I have no fucking clue what “red carpet services” even means.

What I do know is, all the hype and bullshit aside, let me tell you guys something, you can go to Vegas all you want and hang out in long lines to meet your favorite stars but if you really want to have a good time get your ass to this party.  Tom Bryon, who I’m sure you’ve seen in a million fucking movies said “This party is going to fucking rock!”  Here is some video clips of Tom Byron getting it on with Jenna Jameson in a hot little threesome, in case you forgot who he was.


Many other stars are invited to this legendary party including new Cezar Capone contract girl Morgan Dayne, and some of the stars from Goldstar Modeling who right now is repping some hot girls including The Love Twins, Devon,  Gina Lynn, Sunny Leone.  and so many more I can’t even name.  I called Goldstar Modeling to find out which of their famous clientèle we can expect to have at the party, specifically wanting to know if say The Love Twins would be attending and he had this to say …

Unfortunately Lacey and Lyndsey Love won’t be able to make it to Vegas this year or they would defiantly be at the party.  As far as the rest of the girls go, I don’t have the roster set in stone yet but there is a lot of A list talent confirming their attendance, but you won’t be disappointed, I promise you that.   If you want to party with famous porn stars, this is THE party to be at.

Here is a list of some of the porn stars invited to attend: Casey Parker from Shane’s World and yes this is the same hot blonde that is friends with Sunny Leone who you might have seen on the Fox Reality show My Bare Lady 2, Kayden Kross with Adam and Eve,  Flower Tucci, Lisa Ann, Mason Moore,  Kara Tai, Missy Stone, Sunny Lane, Alexis Texas,  Morgan Dayne, Heather Silk and hundreds more!

Pornstarville is so big, look at the list of companies involved in it —- Club Jenna, Twistys.com, Bubba the Love Sponge (the dude from Howard Stern), Adam & Eve (does this mean Bree Olson is expected to attend??  Apparently I am told she is invited and as long as she doesn’t get ot fucked up at the awards show prior she is expected to attend — she is one start I personally look forward to partying with personally), Amateur District, Girlfriends Films,  Pink Visual, Cezar Capone, JustinSlayer, Hustler, Bang Bros., Shane’s World, Tom Byron Pictures,Anabolic, Sweetheart Video, Elegant Angel, DVSX, Real Touch, Gourmet Video, WCP, Doghouse Digital, Devil’s Film, Black Market, Pleasure Productions, Magnus, White Ghetto, Anarchy Films, Anarchy District, KBeechContent.com, Gentlemen’s Video, Dreamgirls, Wildlife Productions, Sin City, Adult Business Academy, Robert Hill Releasing Company, Juicy Entertainment, Exquisite, Global Media International Films, Acid Rain,Intense Industries, Evasive Angels Entertainment, Yappo, Amateur District, AllXClub, Giggles.com, NakedChatLive.com, The Candy Shop,Northstar Associates, XCartel, Mayhem, BustBox, Overboard Video, Combat Zone, Third World Media, Voodoo House, Starr Productions, Antigua Productions, Hush Hush Entertainment and Bone Digital.

Again Pornstarville is going to be held directly after the AVN Awards at Studio 54 which is located inside the MGM Grand, at 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South.  This is the Vegas party of the year – and you don’t want to miss it!  More than 3,000 guys and gals are expected to dance the night away and socialize with sexy porn stars, so make sure you visit www.pornstarville.com for more ticket information.
