CHATSWORTH, Calif. — AVN Media announces its list of nominations for the 2013 AVN Awards. 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.

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 was renamed Best Drama in
order to properly complement Best Comedy, and Best All-Sex Release –
Mixed Format was retitled Best Wall-to-Wall Release for those releases
mixing 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.”

“I’m really proud of the work the nominations committee did,” said AVN
Managing Editor Steve Javors, echoing his colleague’s comments. “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 individuals elected to the AVN Hall of Fame will
be made in the coming days.
