The 30th AVN Awards ceremony, or XXX AVN Awards, was an event during which Adult Video News (AVN) presented its annual AVN Awards to honor the best pornographic movies and adult entertainment products of 2012. Movies or products released between October 1, 2011 and September 30, 2012 were eligible. The ceremony was held on January 19, 2013 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Paradise, Nevada.[4] Comedian April Macie, AVN Hall of Fame inductee Jesse Jane and Asa Akira, who won Female Performer of the Year, hosted the AVN Awards.[1] The awards show was held immediately after the Adult Entertainment Expo at the same venue.

Best Romance Release was one of several new categories created for the 30th Awards Show. The new categories "reflect the ever-evolving market trends of the business" and the Best Romance award is for a movie with a romantic story line geared specifically to women or couples.[5] Torn, starring best actor winner Steven St. Croix, won the first Best Romance award.

Wasteland took top honors as Movie of the Year, also winning best drama and six other awards, including a directing award for Graham Travis, who also directed the previous year's top movie, and a Best Actress victory for Lily Carter. Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody took six awards including Best Parody – Comedy.

Octomom Home Alone won the Best Celebrity Sex Tape category,[6] while Axel Braun won his third straight Director of the Year award[7] and Remy LaCroix won the AVN Best New Starlet Award. All winners were presented newly redesigned trophies, depicting an intertwined couple, to celebrate the awards' 30th anniversary.[8]

Ceremony information[edit]

Changes to awards categories[edit]

Beginning with the 30th AVN Awards, the following changes to award categories took place:[5]

  • The AVN Award for Best Feature has been renamed Best Drama to properly complement Best Comedy.
  • The AVN Award for Best All-Sex Release - Mixed Format has been renamed Best Wall-to-Wall Release for movies that mix gonzo, vignette and all-sex scene genres.
  • The discontinued AVN Award previously known as Best All-Sex/Vignette Series has been reintroduced as Best Continuing Series. (Similarly, the existing Best Foreign All-Sex Series and Best Foreign All-Sex Release awards were renamed Best Foreign Continuing Series and Best Foreign Non-Feature respectively.)
  • The discontinued AVN Award Best New Production Company has been reintroduced because of market expansion.
  • New categories, including Best Romance Release, Best Star Showcase and Best Transsexual Sex Scene have been introduced to reflect evolving market trends.

Reception and review[edit]

Some media outlets were impressed by the show. Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun reported, "It was the annual sea of sexiness that couldn’t take place anywhere else in the world."[18] He also noted the large size of the crowd as did the Huffington Post, which pointed out, "Thousands of fanboys and porn stars flooded the halls" and "all the A-listers were there."[19]

In Memoriam[edit]

As the show was beginning, AVN used a video segment to pay a tribute to adult-industry personalities who had died since the 2012 awards show:

Time constraints prevented the segment from being re-edited to include director Fred J. Lincoln, who had died a couple of days earlier.[20]
