The 26th AVN Awards ceremony, presented by Adult Video News (AVN), honored the best pornographic movies of 2008 and took place on January 10, 2009, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Paradise, Nevada. During the ceremony, Adult Video News presented AVN Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars of porn)[3] in 127 categories released between Oct. 1, 2007 and Sept. 30, 2008.[4] The ceremony, televised in the United States by Showtime, was produced by Gary Miller.[2][5] Comedian Thea Vidale hosted the show for the second time, joined on stage by actresses Belladonna and Jenna Haze.[2][5]

Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge won 15 awards, the most of the evening, including Best Video Feature and Best Director for Joone.[5] Other winners included Fallen and Cheerleaders with four awards each and Icon, Not Bewitched XXX, and Big Wet Asses 13 with three apiece. Subsequent to the broadcast on Showtime, the show was issued on a two-disc DVD with hardcore excerpts of winning scenes added as extras.[6][7]
