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.

About Tasha Reign:
University student, vegetarian, social activist, rock & roll reviewer, yoga enthusiast, feminist, hardcore porn star – meet Tasha Reign, the most dynamic and multi-dimensional new star in entertainment. Long before becoming sexually empowered through adult movies, Tasha found herself in front of the camera on the third season of MTV’s “Laguna Beach.” Realizing her love for the spotlight, Tasha began dancing regularly at gentlemen’s clubs to the music of Warrant, Kid Rock, and Def Leppard, while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies from UCLA. The 5’ 5” SoCal beauty was featured in Playboy’s 2010 “Girls of the Pac-10” and named the May 2011 Penthouse Pet of the Month. A desire to further explore her sexuality led Tasha to adult films, where she is one of the most sought-after rising stars, appearing in movies for the top studios. Tasha’s acclaimed performances were recognized with a 2012 Best New Starlet nomination at the XBIZ Awards, where she also served as a Trophy Girl. Her photograph with former President Bill Clinton at a fundraiser in Monaco went viral and led to Tasha being profiled by media around the world, including TMZ, Page 6, Inside Edition, Huffington Post, PerezHilton.com, and more. Noting her rising celebrity status and unique views on music, Rock Confidential magazine made Tasha a weekly reviewer. Porn, rock, and Tasha Reign are a platinum combination.

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.
