Your 2019 AVN Awards Preview – Acting Categories

As you undoubtedly know, it’s Award Season in Hollywood: The Golden Globes, the Oscars, and, of course, the AVN Awards. Make it Snow will be giving you the best preview for the Oscars and I have made it my mission to provide you the best AVN Award preview on any website that doesn’t require parental control. (YET!)

You may notice that, like the Oscars, the nominating committee tends to congregate around certain films and types of films and thus you’ll see multiple nominations for the same film. Adult movies, they’re JUST LIKE US!

Due to the sheer number of nominees, I will be breaking this up into three posts. This one shall tackle the Acting categories, another will tackle the Technical categories, and the third will tackle the Movies.

I will list for you each category, highlight in BOLD my pick, and provide commentary at the bottom. For brevity’s sake, I’ll stick to the major categories.

Without further ado, TO THE NOMINEES!

All-Girl Performer of the Year

  • Ayumi Anime
  • Serena Blair
  • Jayden Cole
  • Val Dodds
  • Darcie Dolce
  • Kendra James
  • Shyla Jennings
  • Georgia Jones
  • Ivy Jones
  • Milana May
  • Mindi Mink
  • Prinzzess
  • Sabina Rouge
  • Scarlett Sage
  • Jenna Sativa
  • Charlotte Stokely
Ayumi Anime

Go ahead. Pick someone else. I’ll fight ye!

Best Actor – Feature

  • Brad Armstrong, The Cursed XXX, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Johnny Castle, The Finisher: A DP XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Xander Corvus, Xander’s World Tour, Brazzers/Pulse
  • Danny D., NeverMore, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • James Deen, Starfucked, Kelly Madison/Juicy
  • Ryan Driller, The Seduction of Heidi, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Robby Echo, Hand Solo: A DP XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Seth Gamble, Deadpool XXX; An Axel Braun Parody, Wicked Comix
  • Small Hands, A Trailer Park Taboo, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Steve Holmes, Dirty Grandpa, Burning Angel/Exile
  • Ryan McLane, Curse, Wicked Pictures
  • Derrick Pierce, Second First Date, Wicked Pictures
  • Logan Pierce, Love in the Digital Age, New Sensations Romance
  • Tommy Pistol, Anne: A Taboo Parody, Pure Taboo
  • Michael Vegas, How I Fucked Your Mother: A XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse

This was a two hung-like-a-horse race between Steve Holmes for his performance as Dirty Grandpa and Seth Gamble for his performance as Deadpool. It’s difficult to capture Ryan Reynold’s smartass character and Seth was able to do it expertly.

Best Actor – Featurette

  • Dick Chibbles, Right to Refuse, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Xander Corvus, The Jerk With a Johnson: A DP XXX Parody,
  • Charles Dera, The Sting, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Markus Dupree, Who’s Becky? (from Games We Play), Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan
  • Robby Echo, The Deflowering (from Prom Night), Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Seth Gamble, Is Everything OK?,
  • Brad Knight, Head of the House (from The Rental), Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Tyler Knight, Fuck Me First Daddy, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Tyler Nixon, Video Diary, MissaX
  • Derrick Pierce, The Allowance, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Logan Pierce, Uncle Charming,
  • Tommy Pistol, The Weight of Infidelity,
  • Donnie Rock, Doctor’s Orders, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Michael Vegas, The Jealous Brother, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Chad White, The Governess,, MissaX

I was this close to giving it to Dick Chibbles for his name alone, but that really wouldn’t be fair. The Jerk with a Johnson has received multiple nominations this year and Xander Corvus is a big reason for that.

Best Actress – Feature

  • Britney Amber, Naked, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Mercedes Carrera, Second First Date, Wicked Pictures
  • Adriana Chechik, Star Wars: The Last Temptation – A Digital Playground XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Jessica Drake, Fallen II: Angels & Demons, Wicked Pictures
  • Kimmy Granger, Poon Raider: A DP XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Eliza Jane, Anne: A Taboo Parody, Pure Taboo
  • Aaliyah Love, Too Little Too Late, Wicked Pictures
  • Avi Love, The Possession of Mrs. Hyde, Wicked Pictures
  • Abigail Mac, Fantasy Factory: Wastelands, Girlsway/Girlfriends
  • Gia Paige, Love in the Digital Age, New Sensations Romance
  • Kenzie Reeves, A Trailer Park Taboo, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Kristen Scott, Camgirl, Wicked Pictures
  • India Summer, Flawless, Wicked Pictures
  • Mona Wales, Insomnia, Wicked Pictures
  • Whitney Wright, Cursed, Wicked Pictures

I tend to favour actors in the porn parody categories as they have not only put on a good sexual performance, but they must actually do a fairly good job of portraying a character that another actor has made famous. Not an easy task. Kimmy Granger is a much better Raider than the crazy chick with the big lips and the new chick they put in the new movie. Plus, she fucks.

Best Actress – Featurette

  • Brooklyn Chase, The Deal, AllHerLuv
  • Chloe Cherry, Blind Surprise (from Mail Order), Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Karlee Grey, The Electra Complex, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Elena Koshka, The Allowance, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Karla Lane, The Weight of Infidelity,
  • Gia Paige, The Jealous Brother, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Piper Perri, Fuck Me First Daddy, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Jessa Rhodes, Red Maiden: A DP XXX Parody (from Parodies Awaken 3), Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Aubrey Sinclair, The Rental, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • India Summer, A Mother’s Choice, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Gina Valentina, Don’t Talk To Strangers (from The Psychiatrist), Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Tiffany Watson, Right to Refuse, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Angela White, Who’s Becky? (from Games We Play), Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan
  • Ivy Wolfe, Sugar, MissaX
  • Whitney Wright, The Governess, Missa X

Gina Valentina is one of a few sexy latinas that really stood out for me this year. She deserves an award and I think this is her best category to win one.

Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene

  • The Breast Doctor Around, Girlsway/Girlfriends; Shyla Jennings, Serena Blair & Melissa Moore
  • Carnal, Wicked Pictures; Marica Hase, Tia Kai, Nyomi Star, Kaylani Lei & Ember Snow
  • The Coven Wives, Sweetheart/Mile High; Cherie DeVille, Brandi Love & Alexis Fawx
  • Cumless: A Digital Playground XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse; Britney Amber, Mary Moody & Ana Foxxx
  • Duplicity,; Jane Wilde, Alina Lopez & Kristen Scott
  • Fantasy Factory: Wastelands, Girlsway/Girlfriends; Abigail Mac, Kenna James & April O’Neil
  • A Flapper Girl Story,; Ivy Wolfe, Eliza Jane & Jenna Sativa
  • I Know Who You Fucked Last Halloween, BurningAngel/Exile; Joanna Angel, Katrina Jade, Ivy Lebelle & Ariana Marie
  • My Girlfriend’s Girlfriend, Zero Tolerance Entertainment; Kendra Spade, Jade Nile & Milana May
  • No Man’s Land: 3 Way Lesbians, Video Team/Metro/Pulse; Jade Luv, Brenna Sparks & Ayumi Anime
  • Notebook Confessions, WebYoung/Girlsway/Pulse; Kenzie Reeves, Cadey Mercury & Gina Valentina
  • Please Make Me Lesbian! 17, Girlfriends Films; Brooklyn Chase, Jessica Rex & Victoria June
  • Talk Derby to Me, Sweetheart/Mile High; Carmen Caliente, Katrina Jade & Gia Paige
  • Unleashed, Adam & Eve Pictures; Honey Gold, Jill Kassidy, Scarlett Sage & Eliza Jane
  • Whipped Ass 23, Jordan; Cadence Lux, Cherry Torn & Kacie Castle

I will be REALLY pissed off if the three ladies in The Coven Wives don’t win. They’re all hot blonde older women in tremendous shape. Plus, their scenes together are super hot. They look a lot alike, so you have to pay attention to see who is doing what to who.

Best Anal Sex Scene

  • Abigail, Tushy/Jules Jordan; Abigail Mac & Markus Dupree
  • Anal Nymphos Anal Legends 2, Manuel Ferrara/Jules Jordan; Adriana Chechik & Manuel Ferrara
  • Big Black Wet Asses 15, Elegant Angel Productions; Skyler Nicole & Prince Yahshua
  • Bush 7, Elegant Angel Productions; Lana Rhoades & Markus Dupree
  • First Anal 6, Tushy/Jules Jordan; Kenzie Reeves & Jean Val Jean
  • Fucking Flexible 3, Hot Frame/Evil Angel; Arya Fae & Toni Ribas
  • I Am Angela, Evil Angel Films; Angela White & Rocco Siffredi
  • Jessy’s Girls, Evil Angel; Katrina Jade & Jessy Jones
  • Manuel Creampies Their Asses 5, Jules Jordan Video; Elena Koshka & Manuel Ferrara

  • Oil Slick, Evil Angel; Gia Derza & Markus Dupree
  • Pretty Little Sluts, Manuel Ferrara/Jules Jordan; Gina Valentina & Manuel Ferrara
  • Prince the Ass-Assin, Analized/Girlfriends; Chanel Preston & Prince Yahshua
  • Sun-Lit 3, Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan; Abella Danger & Markus Dupree
  • Trashy Love Story, Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan; Holly Hendrix & Jessy Jones

The folks at Tushy, in my opinion, are the best at the anal genre. They are consistently classy with beautiful actors and locations and yes, a fucking plot. I’m choosing Abigail and Markus in this one as they showed good chemistry.

Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene

  • Ass Parade 66, Bang Bros/Girlfriends; Kelsi Monroe & Tyler Steele
  • Backseat Banging 5, Mofos/Pulse; Kenzie Reeves & Brick Danger
  • Cartel Sex, Kelly Madison/Juicy; Misty Stone & James Deen
  • Déjà Vu, MissaX; Ivy Wolfe & Chad White
  • The Female of the Species, Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan; Evelyn Claire & Manuel Ferrara
  • Future Darkly, Pure Taboo/Pulse; Jill Kassidy & Tommy Pistol
  • Hot Bodies 3, Hard X/O.L. Entertainment; Alina Lopez & Markus Dupree
  • Killer Blowjobs,; Riley Reid & Tommy Pistol
  • More Than a Thrill,; Sinderella & Mick Blue
  • Natural Beauties 6, Vixen/Jules Jordan; Tori Black & Jean Val Jean
  • Petites, Baeb/New Sensations; Adria Rae & James Deen
  • The Possession of Mrs. Hyde, Wicked Pictures; Avi Love & Ramon Nomar
  • Serendipity,; Angela White & Markus Dupree
  • Split Screen, Kelly Madison/Juicy; Carolina Sweets & Ryan Madison
  • XXX Parodies, Digital Playground/Pulse; Ariana Marie & Xander Corvus

This was a tough category to pick. Riley Reid did a wonderful job with Killer Blowjobs and has deservedly gotten multiple nominations for it. Jill Kassidy and Tommy Pistol were real hot in Future Darkly. However, I’m going with Alina Lopez and Markus Dupree in Hot Bodies 3.

Best Double Penetration Sex Scene

  • Abigail, Tushy/Jules Jordan; Abigail Mac, Jax Slayher & Prince Yahshua
  • Angela Loves Anal 2, AGW Entertainment; Angela White, Mick Blue & Markus Dupree

  • Department of Double Penetration 2, Perv City/Adult Source; Dahlia Sky, Steve Holmes & John Strong
  • DP Masters 6, Jules Jordan Video; Adriana Chechik, Steve Holmes & Markus Dupree
  • DP Me 7, Hard X/O.L. Entertainment; Avi Love, Mick Blue & John Strong
  • It’s a Family Thing! 2, Elegant Angel Productions; Skyla Novea, James Deen & Steve Holmes
  • My DP 3, Tushy/Jules Jordan; Adria Rae, Mick Blue & Jean Val Jean
  • The Nerd’s Revenge, Pure Taboo/Pulse; Kristen Scott, Seth Gamble & Xander Corvus
  • Pornstar Workout 3, Elegant Angel Productions; Abella Danger, Markus Dupree & Mick Blue
  • Rich Fucks, Brazzers/Pulse; Bridgette B., Xander Corvus & Toni Ribas
  • Squirtwoman: Wasteland, Elegant Angel Productions; Kleio Valentien, Tommy Gunn & Markus Dupree
  • Ultimate Fuck Toy: Lana Rhoades, Jules Jordan Video; Lana Rhoades, Steve Holmes & Markus Dupree

Did you know that Angela White is Australian? You do now. She’s also hot, stacked, and loves anal. Like there was any question she was going to get my vote here…

Best Foreign-Shot Anal Sex Scene

  • Anal Fuck Dolls 3, Analized/Girlfriends; Ria Sunn & Erik Everhard
  • Babes on Wheels, Private; Anna Polina, Dorian del Isla & Potro de Bilbao
  • Double Anal Addicts, Evil Angel; Anna de Ville, Mike Angelo & Charlie Dean
  • Hot Girls With Nice Asses 2, Analized/Girlfriends; Cherry Kiss, Erik Everhard & James Deen
  • Le Salon de Massage, Jacquie et Michel Elite; Francesca di Caprio & Lorenzo Viota
  • Liv Revamped First DP With Two Monster Cocks,; Liv Revamped, Nacho Vidal & Christian Clay
  • Meeting & Mating, Hands on Hardcore/; Alyssia Kent, Mugur & Erik Everhard
  • Military Misconduct, Marc Dorcel/Wicked; Cassie del Isla & Luke Hardy
  • Misha in Exile, Evil Angel Films; Misha Cross, Erik Everhard & Lutro
  • My Sister’s Little Ass, Doghouse/Mile High; Evelina Darling & Raul Costa
  • Police Harassment, Alex Romero/Pulse; Lola Taylor, Sabby & George Uhl
  • The Prisoner, Marc Dorcel/Wicked; Clea Gaultier, Kristof Cale & Charlie Dean
  • Tight Ass Teens 2, Colette/Adult Source; Kira Thorn & Angelo Godshack
  • Tina Sex Addict, Harmony Films; Tina Kay, Angelo Godshack & Steve Q.
  • Undercover, Marc Dorcel/Wicked; Megan Rain & Ricky Mancini

Euro porn is said to be more classy than American porn. I’m not sure about that, but I think the best of both worlds is when you combine European and American actors in one scene. This happened in Hot Girls with Nice Asses 2 and the result was award-winning magic.

Best Foreign-Shot Boy/Girl Sex Scene

  • The Adopted Daughter: Family Secret, Marc Dorcel; Clea Gaultier & Stirling Cooper
  • Babysitting in Ibiza,; Mary Kalisy & Christian Clay
  • Breakfast of Sex Champions,; Texas Patti & Patrick
  • Scam, Sex & Stiletto, Jacquie et Michel Elite; Ava Courcelles & Joss Lescaf

  • Taylor Sands Gets Two Creampies in Her Hairy Pussy in POV,; Taylor Sands & Dean Van Damme
  • Young Latina Pick Up Sluts, Canale Corp/Evil Angel; Penelope Cum & Nacho Vidal

They had me at Ibiza. I have Spanish blood, remember?

  • Captive, Jacquie et Michel Elite; Milana Bianca, Lorenzo Viota & Kristof Cale
  • Double Pound My Pussy, Doghouse/Mile High; Lady Dee, Nick Gill & Thomas Crown

  • Mina Sauvage, Her 1st Summer Camp, Marc Dorcel/Wicked; Mina Sauvage, Shona River & Kristof Cale
  • Pornochic: Claire & Lana, Marc Dorcel; Lana Rhoades, Claire Castel, Math, Alberto Blanco & Rico Simmons

  • Rocco’s Dirty Girls 2, Rocco Siffredi/Evil Angel; Ria Rodriguez, Misha Cross & Mike Angelo

  • Undercover, Marc Dorcel/Wicked; Alexa Tomas, Megan Rain, Apolonia Lapiedra & Emilio Ardana
  • XXXtreme Group Fuck Sensation, Hands on Hardcore/; Nelly Kent, Rebecca Volpetti, David Perry, Ian Scott & Thomas Stone

You may already have seen my bias or predilection for parody movies. It’s something about seeing characters I already know and like in different scenarios that I like. Which is why I like Riverdale. And How I Fucked Your Mother.

Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene

  • Abigail, Tushy/Jules Jordan; Abigail Mac & Kissa Sins
  • Ariana Marie: A Little Bit Harder, Evil Angel Films; Ariana Marie & Jill Kassidy
  • Axel Braun’s Girlfest, Wicked Pictures; Charlotte Stokely & Sabina Rouge
  • Bare, Jules Jordan Video; Shyla Jennings & Sadie Blake
  • Erotic Tales, Penthouse/Girlfriends; Jenna Sativa & Mary Moody
  • Girls Gone Pink, Mofos/Pulse; Veronica Rodriguez & Rina Ellis
  • I Screw Girls, Screwbox; Gina Valentina & Sydney Cole
  • Interracial Girlfriends 3, Third Degree Films; Julie Kay & Olive Glass

  • Snatch Chat, Wicked Pictures; Ella Knox & Katya Rodriguez
  • Talk Derby to Me, Sweetheart/Mile High; Joanna Angel & Stoya
  • Trashy Love Story, Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan; Holly Hendrix & Evelyn Claire

“Abigail” is a great showcase for Abigail Mac that drew great performances from all involved. The scene with Kissa Sins was pretty hot.

Best Group Sex Scene

  • After Dark, Vixen/Jules Jordan; Tori Black, Jessa Rhodes, Mia Malkova, Abella Danger, Kira Noir, Vicki Chase, Angela White, Ana Foxxx, Bambino, Mick Blue, Ricky Johnson, Ryan Driller & Alex Jones

  • Anne: A Taboo Parody, Pure Taboo; Eliza Jane, Casey Calvert, Kristen Scott, Elena Koshka, Derrick Pierce & Seth Gamble
  • Cinedoe – College Reunion Part 2, #LetsDoeIt; Abella Danger, Valentina Nappi, Vicki Chase, Alex Legend, Jessy Jones & Markus Dupree
  • Fallen II: Angels & Demons, Wicked Pictures; Jessica Drake, Casey Calvert, Luna Star, Ryan Driller, Derrick Pierce & Eric Masterson

  • Joanna Angel Gangbang: As Above So Below, BurningAngel/Exile; Joanna Angel, Markus Dupree, Steve Holmes, John Strong, Bill Bailey & Mick Blue
  • Lena Paul 1st Gangbang,; Lena Paul, Ramon Nomar, Mr. Pete, John Strong, Mick Blue & Brad Newman
  • New Year’s Kiss,; Riley Reid, Jill Kassidy, Melissa Moore & Jean Val Jean
  • The Orgy House, Spizoo/Adult Source; Karma Rx, Kenzie Taylor, Sophia Grace, Logan Long & Mr. Pete
  • We Fuck Black Girls – Kira Noir [II], We Fuck Black Girls/; Kira Noir, James Deen, Markus Dupree & Steve Holmes
  • Xander’s World Tour, Brazzers/Pulse; Gina Valentina, Lena Paul, Abigail Mac & Xander Corvus

Riley Reid is in the middle of making the great transition from in-front-of-camera to behind-the-camera. Her website provides great content as evidenced by this scene.

Best Male Newcomer (Seriously, AVN, how is this not the Best Male Newcummer?)

  • Indiana Bones
  • Cash Boss
  • Stirling Cooper
  • Lil D
  • Dustin Daring
  • Oliver Flynn
  • Johnny Goodluck
  • Quinton James
  • Conner Kennedy
  • Jason Luv
  • Brad Newman
  • Sam Shock
  • Louie Smalls
  • Brad Sterling

  • Hime Marie
  • Nia Nacci
  • Kenzie Reeves
  • Karma Rx
  • Nicolette Shea
  • Kendra Spade
  • Jane Wilde
  • Emily Willis
  • Ivy Wolfe
Alina Lopez

Best Non-Sex Performance

  • Shawn Alff, The Seduction of Heidi, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • James Avalon, Talk Derby to Me, Sweetheart/Mile High
  • James Bartholet, Deadpool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, Wicked Comix
  • Juanito Blanco, Dirty Grandpa, BurningAngel/Exile
  • Axel Braun, Deadpool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, Wicked Comix
  • Frank Bukkwyd, The Cursed XXX, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Tom Byron, The Possession of Mrs. Hyde, Wicked Pictures
  • Jane Hamilton, Camgirl, Wicked Pictures
  • Nina Hartley, Future Darkly, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Bree Mills, A Trailer Park Taboo, Pure Taboo/Pulse
  • Stephen Ross, Abigail, Tushy/Jules Jordan
  • Will Ryder, Deadpool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, Wicked Comix
  • Jacky St. James, Paparazzi, Sweet Sinner/Mile High
  • Kyle Stone, Never Forgotten, Wicked Passions
  • Missa X, Sugar, MissaX

I like to think that Alex Braun aspires to be the Alfred Hitchcock of porn and would put himself in all of his films. I doubt he will be able to do that, but his non-sexual acting in the Deadpool parody was excellent.

Best Oral Sex Scene

  • Aidra Fox Returns to Swallow Salon for Some Cosplay Blowjob Fun,; Aidra Fox & Ray Dark
  • Angela by Darkko, AGW/Darkko/Evil Angel; Angela White, Robby Echo, Eddie Jaye, Eric John, Filthy Rich, Jason Moody, Anthony Gaultier, Steve Holmes & Michael Vegas

  • Kira and Julie Suck Dick Together,; Kira Noir, Julie Kay & Mike Adriano
  • Massive Swallow, Hard X/O.L. Entertainment; Gina Valentina, Robby Echo, Mark Zane, Rob Banks, Jack Vegas, Donny Sins, Jason Katana, Sam Shock, Hunter, Isiah Maxwell & Brad Newman
  • My Wife’s First Blowbang, New Sensations; Kristen Scott, Johnny Goodluck, Codey Steele, Ramon Nomar & Tommy Pistol
  • My Wife’s First Blowbang 2, New Sensations; Emily Willis, Tommy Pistol, Eric Masterson, Chad Alva, Codey Steele & Mark Zane
  • 11, Swallowed/Jules Jordan; Jillian Janson, Jill Kassidy & Mike Adriano

Because two mouths on your penis are better than one.

Best Solo/Tease Performance

  • Anal Glory, Brazzers/Pulse; Valentina Nappi
  • Angela by Darkko, AGW/Darkko/Evil Angel; Angela White [scene 3]
  • Ass Parade 66, Bang Bros/Girlfriends; Kelsi Monroe
  • Bounce 2, Manuel Ferrara/Jules Jordan; Romi Rain, Kayden Kross & Nina Elle
  • The Corruption of Kissa Sins, Jules Jordan Video; Kissa Sins [scene 1]
  • The Female of the Species, Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan; Evelyn Claire
  • Hot Bodies 3, Hard X/O.L. Entertainment; Alina Lopez
  • I Screw Girls, Screwbox; Gina Valentina & Sydney Cole
  • Just Girls and Their Toys, Digital Sin; Haley Reed
  • Loving Myself, Adam & Eve Pictures; Eliza Jane
  • Mad Sensation, Kelly Madison/Juicy; Marilyn Mansion
  • Misha in Exile, Evil Angel Films; Misha Cross [scene 1]
  • Natural 2, Elegant Angel Productions; Alexis Adams
  • Sacrifice My Ass,; Joanna Angel
  • Space Sluts,; Riley Reid, Chloe Cherry & Wednesday Parker

This was a tossup between Alina Lopez in Hot Bodies 3 and Angela White in Angela by Darkko. Alina wins by a hair (which she doesn’t have down there).

Best Star Showcase

  • Abigail, Tushy/Jules Jordan
  • Alexis, Hard X/O.L. Entertainment
  • Alexis Monroe: Knockout, Elegant Angel Productions
  • Ariana Marie: A Little Bit Harder, Evil Angel Films
  • The Corruption of Kissa Sins, Jules Jordan Video
  • Harlow Harrison’s Whore Dreams, James Deen/Girlfriends
  • I Am Angela, Evil Angel Films
  • Katrina Jade: Addicted to Black, Darkko/Evil Angel
  • Lisa Ann: Back 4 More, The Real Lisa Ann/Evil Angel
  • Misha in Exile, Evil Angel Films
  • Prinzzess: A Decade of Desire, Girlfriends Films
  • SeXXXploitation of Nicole Aniston, Desire/Girlfriends
  • Taste of Honey, Darkko/Evil Angel
  • A Treat Story: Scarlett Sage, Twistys/Pulse
  • Ultimate Fuck Toy: Jill Kassidy, Jules Jordan Video
Abigail Mac

No contest. Abigail rocked this category this year.

Best Supporting Actor

  • Chad Alva, Paparazzi, Sweet Sinner/Mile High
  • Charles Dera, Cartel Sex, Kelly Madison/Juicy
  • Lucas Frost, Family Holiday, Sweet Sinner/Mile High
  • Ricky Johnson, Cheaters, Wicked Pictures
  • Jessy Jones, How I Fucked Your Mother: A XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Tyler Knight, Timing Is Everything, Wicked Passions
  • Marcus London, Infidelity 2, Sweet Sinner/Mile High
  • Logan Long, The Seduction of Heidi, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Eric Masterson, The Seduction of Heidi, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Isiah Maxwell, Hand Solo: A DP XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Tyler Nixon, Making Ends Meet, Wicked Pictures
  • Donnie Rock, Trashy Love Story, Trenchcoatx/Jules Jordan
  • Jay Smooth, Tell Me Something Dirty, Wicked Pictures
  • Evan Stone, Meet the Fuckers: A Digital Playground XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Nacho Vidal, Fly Girls: Final Payload, Digital Playground/Pulse

The “Supporting” category is interesting. I tend to think that it’s a category the AVN uses to honor older actors still in the game and doing good work but that are no longer big draws. Nacho Vidal fits the bill here.

Best Supporting Actress

  • Joanna Angel, A Trailer Park Taboo, PureTaboo/Pulse
  • Kat Dior, The Cursed XXX, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Kenna James, The Puppeteer, Sweetheart/Mile High
  • Elsa Jean, Talk Derby to Me, Sweetheart/Mile High
  • JoJo Kiss, Flawless, Wicked Pictures
  • Lily LaBeau, Star Wars: The Last Temptation – A Digital Playground XXX Parody, Digital Playground/Pulse
  • Ivy Lebelle, I Know Who You Fucked Last Halloween, BurningAngel/Exile
  • April O’Neil, Fantasy Factory: Wastelands, Girlsway/Girlfriends
  • Penny Pax, Lady Boss, Girlsway/Girlfriends
  • Romi Rain, The Seduction of Heidi, Adam & Eve Pictures
  • Alison Rey, The Call Girl, Sweet Sinner/Mile High
  • Charlotte Stokely, Becoming Elsa: A Coming of Age Story, Sweetheart/Mile High
  • Misty Stone, Cartel Sex, Kelly Madison/Juicy
  • Stoya, Talk Derby to Me, Sweetheart/Mile High
  • Sarah Vandella, Anne: A Taboo Parody, Pure Taboo

Going by the same logic as above, this is between Joanna Angel and Stoya. I think Stoya gets it.

Best Three-Way Sex Scene – Boy/Boy/Girl

  • 3Sum Smart Slut Student Lexi Lore Has Headmaster Eric John & Her Stepdad, Spizoo/Erotique/Pornhub Premium; Lexi Lore, Eric John & Mark White
  • Award Season,; Tori Black, Mick Blue & Markus Dupree
  • Blacked Raw V6, Blacked Raw/Jules Jordan; Lena Paul, Nat Turnher & Joss Lescaf
  • Blacked Raw V10, Blacked Raw/Jules Jordan; Hime Marie, Louie Smalls & Jason Luv

  • Katrina Jade: Addicted to Black, Darkko/Evil Angel; Katrina Jade, Rob Piper & Jax Slayher
  • Mark & Donnie’s Excellent 3Way Adventure, Spizoo/Adult Source; Cameron Canela, Donnie Rock & Mark White
  • Melania’s Revenge, Fantasy Girl/; Catalina Cruz, Marcus London & Tony DeSergio
  • Naked, Adam & Eve Pictures; Mia Li, Small Hands & Logan Long
  • The Possession of Mrs Hyde, Wicked Pictures; Reagan Foxx, Ramon Nomar & Alex Legend
  • The Seduction of Heidi, Adam & Eve Pictures; Romi Rain, Alex Legend & Logan Long
  • She Wants Us Both, Zero Tolerance Entertainment; Karma Rx, Derrick Pierce & Eric Masterson
  • Slut Puppies 12, Jules Jordan Video; Honey Gold, Chris Strokes & Jules Jordan
  • Starfucked, Kelly Madison/Juicy; Jillian Janson, James Deen & Prince Yahshua
  • XXX Parodies, Digital Playground/Pulse; Dani Jensen, Xander Corvus & Charles Dera

The AVNs, like the Oscars, like to give awards to make political statements. I think this year that results in Melania’s Revenge winning this award. Besides, Catalina Cruz does excellent work and deserves a win.

Best Three-Way Sex Scene – Girl/Girl/Boy

  • After Dark, Vixen/Jules Jordan; Adriana Chechik, Tori Black & Johnny Sins
  • Anal Perfection 6, Vision/Digital Sin; Megan Rain, Adria Rae & Markus Dupree
  • Anal Threesomes 4, Tushy/Jules Jordan; Vicki Chase, Mia Malkova & Markus Dupree

Best Male Newcomer (Seriously, AVN, how is this not the Best Male Newcummer?)

To paraphrase Jim Norton, AVN takes this as seriously as the Academy takes the Oscars.

I refute your assertion that Cherie DeVille won’t be MILF of the year, but I could be wrong. I also feel like Catalina Cruz winning an award in 2019 is like getting a best supporting Oscar as a stand-in for a lifetime achievement award. I remember before she even did solo cam videos a decade ago.

What I know is that for all the porn I’ve watched, which is a sad and shockingly high amount, a lot of these women seem unfamiliar or indistinct, except for the best newcomers. Those can’t all be women who just started in 2018. That’s impossible. Or I’m fucking warped. I do find it interesting to see so many Pure Taboo nominations. I wonder if Little Caprice is as popular online as it seems or if I’m just in the right corners, but I doubt that she has much cachet in the industry.


I must be old – there aren’t enough “Lynn”‘s.

“God Is a Woman and She’s Got One Hell of a Cock” is probably my favorite of all of these.

I wanna watch “Ass Parade 66” but I haven’t seen “Ass Parade 13” or “Ass Parade 42.”

Thank you for this column, and your tireless efforts in watching 3 minutes of each movie.

That’s one hell of a long list, with not one real name or proud father to go with it.


You don’t think “Ryan Ryder” is actually someone’s real name? I had a suitemate in college whose name was “Doug Fulsom” and I always joked that he should change his last name to “Tunnels” but I realze Fulsom is pretty good too.

fulsome: adjective – of large size or quantity; generous or abundant.


Good stuff!

Getting Doug with High is low-key kind of funny.
Glad it made the list.

Enrico Pallazzo

They really need to trim the noms. Trim.


That’s a bald assertion.


What’s a featurette? A clip you can watch on your phone?
