2016 AVN Awards Show, Part 2 – The Awards Show

by Curtis Isom, Founder/Editor-In-Chief

Before I get into this second article, I want to clarify something.  Many think that AVN (founded in 1983) is the only entity that awards those in the Adult Film Industry.  This is incorrect.  There are others such as the XBIZ Awards as well as various magazines giving their own over the years.  But according to my research, without the Adult Film Association of America creating it’s own “Academy Awards” event for adult films, you have to wonder where AVN would be.

So with that said, the second and much smaller set of photos is from the 2016 AVN Awards Show itself.  For these I concentrated on presenting to you the awards presented on stage.  There were other awards mentioned though out the show so at the end of this article is a list of all the 2016 AVN Awards.

The show was hosted by comedian Kate Quigley, along with adult stars Anikka Albrite and Joanna Angel.  It also featured musical performances by Waka Flocka Flame.  Now as to what awards was presented on stage, they were (in order): Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene, Fan Award: Favorite Cam Girl, Best Supporting Actress, Best Oral Sex Scene, Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene, Best Star Showcase, Fan Award: Most Epic Ass, Best New Starlet, Best Actor, Best Anal Sex Scene, Best Actress, Male Performer of the Year, Female Performer of the Year, Director of the Year, All-Girl Performer of the Year, Best Parody, Best Drama, and Transsexual Performer of the Year.  The winners are listed with the accompanying pictures below.  As in other award shows, there were some award winners that weren’t present an their awards was accepted by others.  There were also announcements of the winners of various other awards.

After the Transsexual Performer of the Year award, there was another performance by Waka Flocka Flame, then it was time for the Visionary Award for 2016.  This was presented to AVN founder Paul Fishbein and was interesting to hear him talk about his view on the industry.  After his speech was the last award of the night: Movie of the Year.  Now the Movie of the Year is picked by secret ballot just before the awards ceremony from a list of winners of movies from different categories like Best Drama and Best Parody.  The winner of Movie of the Year went to: “Peter Pan XXX: An Axel Braun Parody”.  What I thought was interesting was when the director, Axel Braun accepted his award he stated that he thought Director Stormy Daniels should have won for her film “Wanted”.  The reaction in the room to this was surprising and intrigued me enough that I want to see both and then give my take.  After that, the hosts closed out the show and the partying began.

I had fun but admit shooting the show was a challenge because we were forbidden to use any flash because Showtime was taping the show for later broadcast.  Not a problem for me, because the lens I had could reach the stage, but had to be manually focused due to the ever changing stage and house lighting. But again, I adapted and ended up with some good shots.  And as stated before, if I get to do this again, I will be better prepared for the next time.

If not, it was an experience I will treasure forever and grateful to those who had faith in my work to ask if I would shoot the AVN Awards Show.  Enjoy the pictures!
