The 23rd AVN Awards ceremony, presented by Adult Video News (AVN), honored the best pornographic films of 2005 and took place January 7, 2006 at the Venetian Hotel Grand Ballroom, at Paradise, Nevada, U.S.A. During the ceremony, AVN presented AVN Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars of porn[3][4][5]) in 104 categories honoring films released between October 1, 2004, and September 30, 2005.[6] The ceremony, televised in the United States by Playboy TV, was produced and directed by Gary Miller. Comedian Greg Fitzsimmons hosted the show with adult film star Jesse Jane.[1]

The Devil in Miss Jones, a remake of the 1973 classic of the same name, won nine awards including Best Film, but the big winner of the evening was Pirates with 11 awards including Best Video Feature.[7] Other multiple award winners included Camp Cuddly Pines Powertool Massacre and Dark Side with five apiece and Squealer with three. The telecast was subsequently issued on DVD by Spice Studios.[1][8][9]

The nominees for the 23rd AVN Awards were announced on November 25, 2005, by Adult Video News. Pirates earned the most nominations with 24 total. The Devil in Miss Jones was next with 19, followed by Eternity with 17, Dark Angels 2: Bloodline and Dark Side each with 16 and Catherine with 15.[6]

The winners were announced during the awards ceremony on January 7, 2006.

Ceremony information[edit]

Several new categories debuted, including Crossover Star of the Year (for impact in mainstream media), Best New Video Production Company and several Specialty genre awards. Meanwhile, multiple packaging categories were condensed into one Best Packaging award due to the demise of VHS as a video format.[6]

High Society magazine and Reuters reported the event's attendance record was shattered as more than 5,000 people watched the show.[3][10]

Performance of year's movies[edit]

1 Night in China was announced as the top selling movie and the 2004 remake of The Masseuse as the top renting movie of the previous year.[7]

Critical reviews[edit]

High Society (magazine)|High Society termed the event a "smashing success."[10]
