AVN Best New Starlet Award
The AVN (Adult Video News) Best New Starlet Award is presented every January in Las Vegas, Nevada at the AVN Awards ceremony. It is given to the porn actress whom the industry believes has displayed the greatest amount of potential and quality in her debut year.
Then-nominee Sunny Lane said of winning the award: "if I won this award, it would be a major effect, because you're looked at different. You're an award winner now for the AVNs. It's the Oscars, it's our big gala, it's our biggest event. So if you win, you're totally respected in the industry. You get different work, your prices go up. You have more say about what you can do."
