The AVN 2017 season started on a warm Thursday night in November at the Avalon in Hollywood, California. A small group of adult actors and actresses walked the first red carpet of the season with anxious anticipation of the opportunities of the night and the following months and years to come. Excitement filled the air.
The AVN nomination announcements have a snowball effect on everyone’s career who earns an AVN nomination and/or an AVN award. Will they make the most of it, will they shine like never before, or will they burn out? There is opportunity merely in an AVN award nomination. Winning the actual AVN award is an even larger ripple effect, but a nomination can have just as much of a positive impact on a career in the adult industry if used to its fullest advantage.
The AVN Nomination Party in Hollywood was just that: a party of adult industry people, both old and new, who unapologetically live in the grey. Freedom is the overwhelming feeling that surges through the air at these events. The love of not living by the rules of society and the fear of being ordinary brings us all together.
“I’m looking forward to AVN 2017, because for me this is where all the magic happened. AVN 2016 was the beginning of Sully Savage. So I’m extremely excited to return and see
all my favorite people, meet new people, and make new connections.” ~Sully Savage(@SullySavage)
The AVN Awards are often referred to as the Oscars of porn. The awards themselves range greatly with almost 100 categories. From Best New Starlet of the year, Male Performer of the year, Best Actress, Best Male Newcomer, Best Gay Solo Video, Best Cinematography, Best Selling Title of the Year, to Fan Voted Awards there is a niche for everyone. The talent in front of the cameras and behind the cameras are recognized in this worldwide celebration of the adult entertainment industry.
“I find the Fan Votes to be more applicable to see which girls are doing great with their branding. I think the fans are the ones who truly pick the stars!” ~Shawna Lenee(@ShawnaLeneeShow)
The AVN Awards and Expo will conclude in late January in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel. This who’s who event of the adult industry will bring out the brightest stars. Let the adventure and awards season begin, along with the New Year.
“We are always excited for AVN! There really is nothing quite like it, the biggest names and the brightest stars all come to the greatest city on earth… VEGAS!” ~Bobby Genital host of Demon Seed Radio(@DemonSeed69)
After living my transition into the “real world,” I needed a reminder of why I love the adult industry. Wah Lah Avn Awards in Vegas should do just the trick.
