The AVN Awards

The AVN Awards are the most recognizable events in the world of porn. It’s the place that sets the time in the industry, with history and diversity. The first AVN Awards were held back in 1984, and in the following years, they started to be covered by the media. At first, Playboy TV was bringing the events to the viewers at home, but in the past 10 years the Showtime network took that job upon themselves and they’re doing a great job. It’s exactly like watching the Oscars, but instead of famous actors and actresses, the red carpet is walked on by porn stars. The ceremony is held in the month of January each year, and at this time it offers awards to models and directors for over 100 categories.

Of course, the most important is the female model of the year, the male model of the year, director of the year, and best film, but they also have categories for best foreign performers, supporting actresses, non-sex videos, best threesomes, all-girls scenes, or best MILF of the year.

At the same time, starting with 1999, the AVN award also awards the gay porn industry as well. Usually, the AVN awards are won by whoever was more popular that year, but the critiques of porn also weigh in on performance and production value when it comes to choosing who gets these awards.

An AVN award sure means success for the years to come and the most successful porn personalities are also getting into the AVN Hall Of Fame, where you will find all the performers and directors who brought a significant change in the industry with their career. An AVN award-winning movie and a porn star are worth checking out!

The XBIZ Awards

The XBIZ don’t have that much history, but they still go back a while. They appeared at the front of the booming internet porn industry back in 2003, and they quickly became popular with porn fans who wanted to learn more about the adult world. With over 150 categories, besides all the classic awards offered in a gala like this, the XBIZ also offers awards for the best porn parody, best new starlet, best taboo release, couple-themed releases, or the best BDSM porn movie of the year.

There are also ethnic awards for black, Asian, and Latina performers, and what’s curious is that they also offer awards for amateur porn, which is a nice touch for those porn fans who love things that are more rooted in reality when it comes to adult entertainment. Also, besides the awards for the gay porn world, the XBIZ is also offering awards for all the categories of the trans porn scene. The XBIZ Awards are just as important for the business persons of the adult world as they are for the performers, directors, and producers. The awards they offer for the best affiliate programs and for the best marketing campaigns of the year are a way through which investors and porn webmasters can know which sites, networks, and brands they should work with.

Even the best adult-related products, such as sex toys or merchandise, are getting recognized in these award shows. If the AVN Awards are the Oscars of porn, the XBIZ Awards are often compared with the Golden Globes of porn, as they’re just as important for the people who activate in the adult industry as they are for the general public.
