The 28th AVN Awards ceremony in Las Vegas, presented by Adult Video News (AVN), honored the best pornographic movies and adult entertainment products of 2010. The ceremony was held on January 8, 2011 in the Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort in Paradise, Nevada. During the ceremony, AVN Media Network presented awards in 155 categories of movies or products released between October 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010. The ceremony was televised in the United States by Showtime. Comedian Lisa Lampanelli hosted the show with co-hosts Tori Black and Riley Steele.
AVN increased the number of people who voted on the awards to more than forty, "roughly divided evenly between in-house AVN editors, freelancers and outside critics" by adding "Xcitement Magazine’s Cindi Loftus, Genesis Magazine’s Dan Davis, RogReviews.com’s Roger Pipe, DrunkenStepfather.com’s Drunken Stepfather, Theresa “Darklady” Reed, former AVN editors Tod Hunter and Jared Rutter, XCritic.com’s Christopher Thorne, Dr. Jay and Don Houston, members of AdultDVDTalk.com and others."
Fan awards were also introduced in 2011. Winners were selected by voting two weeks before the show. Fans were able to vote in four categories: Favorite Performer, Favorite Body, Favorite Movie, and Wildest Sex Scene.
Speed earned Best Feature honors for Brad Armstrong who also took home the Best Director—Feature award. Tori Black won her second Female Performer of the Year award, the first actress to do so in the event's 28-year history, while Gracie Glam won the Best New Starlet Award. Evan Stone became a three-time Male Performer of the Year, joining Manuel Ferrara and Lexington Steele as the two others with three wins in the category.
