How accurate were my AVN awards predictions?

Previously I made some AVN predictions (see them here), so how well did I do? Let’s find out!

Best Actress

  • I predicted Jessica Drake, would win it.
  • But I thought Brooklyn Lee should have won it.

So didn’t get this one right. Virtual newcomer Remy LaCroix took this one.  She is actually pretty good. Glad to hear she won it!

Female Performer of the Year

  • I predicted Bonnie Rotten would win it and she did.

Mainstream Star of the Year

  • I predicted James Deen would win it and he did.

Male Performer of the Year

  • I predicted Xander Corvus would win it because of his friendships with the right people and I’m happy to say that wasn’t the case..
  • I think James Deen should win it, not only because of his body of work but also because so many female performers name is as the guy they most enjoy working with. Apparently he’s just one really nice guy and really treats the ladies with the utmost respect. He however did not.

Manuel Ferrara won it.

So in the end, my prediction success was only 50%. Goes to show you how much I know. LOL

Keep in mind this was all in good fun – nothing personal for or against anyone. It’s like watching the Miss America contest on TV – we all have our favorites for the show but in the end I truly am happy for all the winners. I really am.

 

Jesse Jane Confusion. Is her engagement off?

On November 07, 2012 we reported Jesse Jane’s engagement _HERE_ and then again talked about it on November 21, 2012 _HERE_ where she decided to stop doing boys.  We even showed you a picture of her engagement ring she got while in Paris with her fiance, her personal trainer boyfriend, now fiance Michael Giovanni.

 

Jesse Jane Engaged - 1

 

Now the Las Vegas Sun is reporting something rather different.  [source]  His story implies that she’s divorced, single and ready to mingle.  While we realize she is divorced from her last husband.  What about her engagement to Michael Giovanni?  That was just a few months ago.  This article makes it seem like he’s not a part of her life anymore.

2013 AVN Awards co-host Jesse Jane was getting ready to retire from the porn world when she was here a year ago, but she’s changed her mind and as a single mom discussed it with her son before re-inking her contract.

In a complicated series of corporate takeovers, it has led to her returning to Playboy TV. The blonde bombshell talked with me on her way to Las Vegas for today’s start of the Adult Entertainment Expo at the Hard Rock Hotel and Saturday’s co-hosting role with Asa Akira at The Joint.

“This is my second time hosting,” Jesse told me. “Usually they have you do it only one time, to be fair to everybody, but since it’s the 30th anniversary, they asked me back. It’s six years since I did it anyway.

“I’ve already bought two dresses for the awards. I am still looking for that perfect last dress. I have a white, short rhinestone dress, heart shaped; it is strapless, very pretty. Then I have a crazy dress that is also heart shaped with a bunch of vibrant colors, and it’s short in the front and long in the back with a rhinestone top — and then it just poofs out in all this material. It is super fun and crazy.

“I need one more dress that I still just can’t find that I love. I want something elegant, so I’ll go to a store I love in Vegas. It will probably be a last-minute dress because they always custom it to me in a day.”

I’ve known Jesse from back in her days as a Hooters manager who became a Hawaiian Tropic model before entering the adult-entertainment world. What is she planning for the awards?

“I hate the boring stuff, and I don’t like to follow the scripts that they write,” she laughed. “I want it to be exciting, funny and adventurous. I just can’t read it word-for-word, so I have to throw in my own humor; I am going to throw in some jokes. I can’t follow the rules; I never follow the rules!”

Jesse doesn’t know how many award nominations she has this year. She told me: “I never know because I never pay attention. We are always up for several for Digital Playground, we are always up for Best Group Scene, Best Girl Group Scene. … I am sure ‘Babysitters 2’ is up. There is no way we are not nominated.

“But I still haven’t won Best Female Performer of the Year! I believe that’s due to the fact that I don’t do everything, so I will never get that. There are several things that I don’t do on camera, which I think are requirements, so I will probably never win that one.

“The last time we talked in Vegas at AVN [last year], I was on the verge of retiring. They extended my contract, and the new company that bought Digital Playground also bought Playboy TV, so I am about to take that back over.

“It’s been three years since I was on Playboy. They want me to produce shows. I loved doing Playboy TV; it was so fun, so it will be good to start that back up again. That’s soft porn, where I did the hosting, so now I have two more years left on my contract.

“I had to deal with it with my son when I decided to renew rather than retire. He is at the age now where he is 13, you know, at 11, I let it soften with Playboy TV. I let him know that I have done magazines, and been on TV, and that people see me naked; it’s my job. And now that he turned 13, back in July, we had the talk and everything, and it’s fine.

“Luckily, we still live in a quite mid-country state where you can’t buy it, and you don’t see it. So unless he goes on the Internet, which I am pretty strict about, he can’t see it, and we are good. He totally understands.

“I’m single again. Last March, I split up with my husband, so I am divorced. I’m not coming to Vegas to look for love, but I am looking for fun. I just want to have fun. Enough of marriage for a while! I have been in a relationship back-to-back-to-back since I was 17, and I think it’s time for me now to just have fun.”

(Her fun included checking out Chippendales at The Rio on Tuesday night; thanks to Scott Harrison for his photo gallery of Jesse with dancers Sami Eskelin, Jon Howes, Nathan Minor and John Rivera.)

Jesse has parlayed her porn profession into other businesses. “My tequila business is going really well, and people are loving it. We’re slowly saturating the markets across the country. We’re about to expand into Texas and Chicago.

“I have another deal I’m working on that we should wrap up while I am in Vegas. A lot of people want me to start writing my book, but I am not ready yet. They are pressuring me to at least start writing down stories, or have a ghostwriter, but I just figure what is the point when I am still in porn. I figure wait until the end, then I give you the beginning to the end.

“I never thought I’d go from Hooters to this business. This has exceeded my expectations by far. I love my job. I have no regrets. People who get in this and are unsuccessful — they are like, ‘This business ruined me’ — that is because they aren’t smart in this. My job has been great to me, and I am still having the time of my life.”

 

 

 

What the fuck? Is there a full moon or something??

Is it a full moon or what?  Damn.  Lost of shit going down right now.  Look at all the crazy shit going on in porn right now.

 

Bill Fisher supposedly probed by feds for “investor fraud”.  [source]

Briana Banks arrested last week for DUI.  [source]

Then a few days later (last Thursday apparently) Fabian over at Manwin has been arrested and has been sitting in jail for days over a big tax evasion bust and the entire company is now subject to a tax evasion probe. [source]

Then we hear that adult model Katie King kills herself [source]

Next we hear shit is hitting the fan over at Elegant Angel with a nasty divorce in the works and the wife is wanting more than half … she wants the entire company!  [source]

Next we have Larry Flynt say fuck the AVN show.  According to the story he will not be exhibitng at the AEE show in Las Vegas this year, he will not be buying ads in AVN magazine or their website and he will not be going to the AVN show for the first time, ever.  [source]

 

The 2013 AVN Nomination are out!

The 2013 AVN Nomination are out! [source]

The collective breath the adult entertainment industry has been holding while it anticipates the announcement of the nominees for the AVN Awards can be exhaled. The highly sought-after list of nominees for the 2013 AVN Awards has arrived.

Download the complete list of nominees by clicking here.

A committee of 10 AVN critics spent close to a month and a half compiling nominations in over 130 categories recognizing companies, talent, technicians and creative professionals across the spectrum of the adult entertainment industry.

Several new categories were created to reflect the ever-evolving market trends of the business; these include Best Star Showcase (a movie centered around one female performer by both incorporating her name into its title and featuring her in all of its sex scenes), Best Romance Release (a title with a romance theme/storyline marketed specifically toward women or couples and/or released under a Romance or Couples-Themed line) and Best Transsexual Sex Scene.

Additionally, a number of formerly familiar categories have been reintroduced to the awards as the market has expanded accordingly. Back for 2013 are Best New Production Company and Best Continuing Series (which was previously known as Best All-Sex/Vignette Series.)

Finishing up the housekeeping, Best Feature has been renamed Best Drama in order to properly complement Best Comedy, and Best All-Sex Release – Mixed Format has been retitled Best Wall-to-Wall Release for those releases that mix scene genres between gonzo, vignette and all-sex.

“Everybody on our nominations committee has literally poured their blood, sweat and tears into producing this list over the past six or so weeks, and I can honestly say that in my almost decade at AVN, I don’t think we’ve ever done a more meticulous and thorough job,” AVN Senior Editor Peter Warren said. “I am very pleased with the nominees we’ve come up with, and wish them all a stupendous weekend basking in the glow of being recognized.”

AVN Managing Editor Steve Javors echoed his colleague’s comments.

“I’m really proud of the work the nominations committee did,” he said. “The 30th anniversary of the most important night in adult entertainment is something we all took seriously, and being an AVN award nominee is a big point of pride. Rightfully so. Our nominees should be congratulated and recognized for a job well done. On behalf of everyone at AVN, we appreciate all your contributions to the world of adult entertainment.”

The announcement of those individuals elected to the AVN Hall of Fame will be made in the coming days.

AVN Media Network recently announced the 2013 Award Show hosts—adult superstars Asa Akira and Jesse Jane, along with the show’s musical guest, hip-hop sensation Tyga.

A limited number of tickets to the gala awards are available for fans to purchase through AVNAwards.com. Industry members receive reserved seating. More information about reserved seating may be obtained by emailing Bonnie LeBlanc at tickets@avnawards.com. Studios or groups wishing to purchase a table at the show should also email LeBlanc.

Celebrating its 30th year, the AVN Awards show is the adult industry’s biggest night, and the awards themselves are the industry’s highest honor. With a stylish red carpet pre-show and lavish star-studded ceremony, AVN celebrates outstanding achievements in the world of adult entertainment. The AVN Awards is a must-attend, must-see event featuring the hottest stars from adult and mainstream pop culture.

The AVN Awards will take place after the annual Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE). AEE runs Jan. 17-19, also in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. AEE includes traditional exhibits, meeting rooms, exhibit suites, networking events, parties, product demos and educational components.

Another successful year for the AEE Expo

The 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo A Total Success

The 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE, www.AdultEntertainmentExpo.com) opened its doors in their new venue on Wednesday, January 18th and went through Saturday, January 21st, 2012 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, Nevada.

AEE showcased an incredible lineup of the biggest names the adult industry has to offer, the hottest adult stars from around the world, and a first look at the cutting-edge technology behind some of the most innovative sex toys and novelties on the market today, and in the future. For the first time in its history, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino hosted all facets of the expo, as well as the 2012 AVN Awards Show.

One of the largest adult tradeshows in the world, AEE brought together an exciting and unique experience for everyone within the adult entertainment industry. AEE trade registration included the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE), the industry’s leading B2B trade expo for pleasure products, the AEE Trade Show and for the first time, the AEE Fan Fest, giving fans never-before-seen access to the industry and its participants.

“This show was one of our best ever,” says Theo Sapoutzis, Chief Executive Officer for AVN. “We cant thank The Hard Rock Hotel enough for their hospitality. The feedback we received from the fans and media was overwhelmingly positive and you could just feel the excitement each day.”

“I loved the fun energy of the expo!” says Joanna Angel, who cut the ribbon to begin the festivities. “I had a great time, and so did all the fans. We sold out of almost all of the DVD’s we brought, along with a lot of our T-shirts. The fans were happy, we were happy, and it was a good move for the expo. I look forward to being a part of it next year.”

The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is a one-of-a-kind tradeshow experience that combines business-to-business transactions, networking, knowledge-sharing, talent appearances, and special presentations for the public. The largest event of its kind, AEE showcases the most comprehensive collection of adult talent, exhibitors, and products, which attracts buyers and fans from around the world.

“The AEE Expo was more intimate this year, where I had quality time with all my fans, which I loved,” says Jincey Lumpkin, Esq., Chief Sexy Officer of Juicy Pink Box. “I also did more than double the amount of media interviews this year. Hard Rock was so much more manageable, the whole vibe was more relaxed, so it was actually fun to do business. I also loved having the AVN Awards Show in the same location. The Joint was a sick venue! Super impressive in scale, and the space helped to support an increased production value for the Awards Show. All-in-all, I think it was a smart move to change it up, because it gave us the sweet taste of something fresh.”

“This year’s AVN show at the Hard Rock was a huge success for Devil’s Film,” says Steve Volponi. “We had some serious traffic back at our meeting Suite, and nailed down a lot of business. I’m very happy how it all turned out, and looking forward to hear what the plan is for 2013!” Nicholas Marier with BioFade said “I had a lot of expectations for this event, and it exceeded my expectations!” Adam Moore with Moore Muscle commented that “we will definitely be back next year!”. Bishop with AEBN summed the experience all up with “I am very pleased, this was one of the best shows in a long time.”

The 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo sets the stage for the 29th annual AVN Awards Show, which will be held Saturday, January 21, 2012 at The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
