The 30th AVN Awards ceremony, or XXX AVN Awards, was an event during which Adult Video News (AVN) presented its annual AVN Awards to honor the best pornographic movies and adult entertainment products of 2012 in the United States. Movies or products released between Oct. 1, 2011 and Sept. 30, 2012 were eligible. The ceremony was held January 19, 2013, at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Paradise, Nevada.[3] Comedienne April Macie, AVN Hall of Fame inductee Jesse Jane and Asa Akira, who won Female Performer of the Year, hosted the AVN Awards.[4] The awards show was held immediately after the Adult Entertainment Expo at the same venue.

Best Romance Release was one of several new categories created for the 30th Awards Show. The new categories "reflect the ever-evolving market trends of the business" and the Best Romance award is for a movie with a romantic story line geared specifically to women or couples.[5] Torn, starring best actor winner Steven St. Croix, won the first Best Romance award.

Wasteland took top honors as Movie of the Year, also winning best drama and six other awards, including a directing award for Graham Travis, who also directed the previous year's top movie, and a Best Actress victory for Lily Carter. Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody took six awards including Best Parody – Comedy.

Octomom Home Alone won the Best Celebrity Sex Tape category,[6] while Axel Braun won his third straight Director of the Year award[7] and Remy LaCroix won the AVN Best New Starlet Award. All winners were presented newly redesigned trophies, depicting an intertwined couple, to celebrate the awards' 30th anniversary.[8]

The nominees for the 30th AVN Awards were announced on November 30, 2012.[5]

Honorary AVN Awards[edit]

Reuben Sturman Award[edit]

Lasse Braun was awarded the Reuben Sturman Award, which "recognizes industry stalwarts who've made revolutionary strides for industry rights by battling legal and free speech obstructions."[11]

Visionary Award[edit]

Adam & Eve founder Phil Harvey was chosen to receive the second annual Visionary Award "not only for his success in taking a novelty start-up company into nearly every realm of adult commerce, but also for his sense of civic responsibility in helping to prevent the scourge of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies from destroying lives in Third World countries."[12]

Hall of Fame[edit]

The AVN Awards Hall of Fame inductees, "a handful of individuals who’ve left a perennial imprint in the history pages of the adult entertainment industry," for 2013 were:

Critical reviews[edit]

Some media outlets were impressed by the show. Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun reported, "It was the annual sea of sexiness that couldn’t take place anywhere else in the world."[16] He also noted the large size of the crowd as did the Huffington Post, which pointed out, "Thousands of fanboys and porn stars flooded the halls" and "all the A-listers were there."[17]

In Memoriam[edit]

As the show was beginning, AVN used a video segment to pay a tribute to adult-industry personalities who had died since the 2012 awards show:

Time constraints prevented the segment from being re-edited to include director Fred J. Lincoln, who had died a couple of days earlier.[18]
