The AVN Awards are movie awards sponsored and presented by the American adult video industry trade magazine AVN (Adult Video News) to honor exceptional performance in various aspects of the creation and marketing of American pornographic movies. They are called the "Oscars of porn".[1][2][3] The AVN Awards are divided into nearly 100 categories, some of which are analogous to industry awards offered in other film and video genres, and others that are specific to pornographic/erotic film and video.[4]

AVN sponsored the first AVN Awards ceremony in February 1984. The award ceremony occurs in early January during the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since 2008, the ceremony has aired in a form edited for time on Showtime, which is usually broadcast in a 90-minute timeslot.[5]

Awards for gay adult video were a part of the AVN awards from the 1986 ceremony through the 1998 ceremony. The increasing number of categories made the show unwieldy and for the 1999 ceremony AVN Magazine began hosting the GayVN Awards, an annual adult movie award event for gay adult video.

Awards often go to consistent advertisers in AVN.[6]


Award categories

AVN Awards Show, Hard Rock Hotel

In order to be eligible for a given year's AVN Awards, a title must have been released between October 1 of two years before and September 30 of one year before, and it must be available either from at least 10 wholesale or at least 100 retail outlets by the deadline of September 30 of the preceding year.

The award, which was redesigned in 2000, is named Woody and now appears as a transparent rectangular Lucite block with an engraved stylized male and female embracing. The base of the award is dark and contains lettering with year, category description and winner's name or film title.

In 1998 and 1999, AVN had a Safe Sex Award category, which was discontinued.[4] In 2007, AVN decided to rename the "AVN Crossover Star of the Year Award" to "Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year Award" to honor Jenna Jameson.[7]
