Ceremony information [ edit ]
With the strong showing in awards categories by feature movies, Adult Video News proclaimed them alive and well: "Despite mumbling that features and parodies have run their course, several were big winners this year, including
Underworld, Grease XXX, Temptation of Eve and " Man of Steel XXX. [8 ]
Changes to awards categories [ edit ]
Beginning with the 31st AVN Awards, several new categories were introduced to reflect evolving market trends, including:
Best Safe Sex Scene
Best Condom Manufacturer
All-Girl Performer of the Year
BBW Performer of the Year
[9 ] Best Web Director
Meanwhile, the Best Photography Website category was renamed Best Glamour Website "to include sites that also feature glamorous video content."
Unsung Starlet of the Year was renamed Unsung Female Performer of the Year, Best New Production Company became Best New Studio and Crossover Star of the Year became Mainstream Star of the Year. [6 ]
Fan vote categories increased from four to 10 and the categories themselves were completely changed, from Favorite Body,
Twitter Queen, Favorite Porn Star and Best Free Adult Website, to the following: [24 ]
Favorite Porn Star (Female)
Favorite Porn Star (Male)
Favorite Web Cam Girl
AVN also added another category to its Hall of Fame: "the Executive Branch, for key members of the industry who work behind the scenes" such as in sales, marketing or education.
Best Celebrity Sex Tape and Best Internal Release were dropped on this year's list of categories.
Critical reviews [ edit ]
Some media outlets were critical of the show.
Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun reported he was told attendance was down and the entertainment was terrible. [25 ]
Richard Abowitz, who covers the adult industry for
The Daily Beast termed the show "lackluster", noting, "Though long-billed as the Academy Awards for the adult industry, few take that label seriously anymore…The massive decline in the porn industry’s fortunes thanks to regulatory challenges and piracy and the infinity of sex offerings on the Internet have left the remains of the mainstream porn industry closer to the cheesy and sleazy parody of the other Hollywood that defined porn’s golden era of the '80s." [26 ]
ExpressMilwaukee sexuality blogger Laura Anne Stuart expressed mixed feelings about the new BBW Performer of the Year award category: "On one hand, I’m glad that the most well-known adult industry awards are recognizing that larger women are sexy and sexual. On the other hand, this probably means that the Best Actress and Female Performer of the Year categories will continue to be won by skinny people with preternaturally large boobs and/or butts."
In Memoriam [ edit ]
As the show was beginning, AVN used a segment to pay a tribute to adult-industry personalities who had died since the 2013 awards show, including
publisher Screw Al Goldstein and producer/distributor Morty Gordon. [8 ]
