Changes to awards categories
Beginning with the 27th AVN Awards, AVN Media Network added a category to the awards show titled Best Sex Parody. "Because of the amount of quality parodies that studios have produced in the past year and the impact they've had on the marketplace, we've decided to honor the best of those movies in their own category separate from our long-running Best Sex Comedy award", said Paul Fishbein, president of AVN.
