And the votes are in! The 2010 AVN Award nominees have been announced, and this year the picks are better than ever. Basically the Oscars of porn, the AVN Awards honor the best and brightest of porno movie royalty. So, yeah, they are a big freaking deal. This year we are extra excited because so many of our favorite performers are on the list! We are super happy for them and know they all completely deserve the nominations.  Check out the full nomination list.

While many of the folks nominated have had the pleasure of making the list in previous years, I want to make sure to give a special shout out to some HM4Her crushes that are celebrating their first AVN Award nominations this year. Especially the San Francisco queers that are breaking through the mainstream barriers of porn and bringing their insanely sexy gender/sexuality bending action to the masses. This year is the first that AVN is recognizing the work they do as being on par with some of the most well known names in mainstream porn.

So, who am I talking about? Jiz Lee, Dylan Ryan and Pink and White Productions (dir. Shine Louise Houston)!  I remember that last year we were excited when queer performer Syd Blakovich walked the AVN red carpet as Madison Young’s date, and now look at us – cheering on these awesome queers for their own nominations!  And surprisingly, it’s not for a queer category either.  Jiz is up for Best New Web Starlet, Dylan for Best Solo Sex Scene, and Pink and White for their Best Video Feature, “Champion,” which was shot with a mostly queer/trans/gender non-conforming/people of color cast and crew and with a way smaller budget than any other movie in the nomination category.  Hot, right?  So, congrats to these rad pervs!  Who cares who wins… the nod is freaking awesome.

Some of our other favorite porno gods/goddesses that made the list this year are:

Nica Noelle – Director of the Year
Kimberly Kane – Best Actress
James Deen – Best Actor/ Male Performer of the Year
Carlos Batts – Best Director (Non-Feature)
Roulette – Best Music Soundtrack  (I told you!)
Sweet Sinner – Best New Line
Good Releasing – Best New Video Production Company
Sasha Grey – Best New Web Starlet/ The Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year
Belladonna – pretty much every award
Tommy Gunn – Best Actor/ Best Supporting Actor
Penny Flame – Best Supporting Actress
Joanna Angel – Director of the Year
Dana DeArmond – Female Performer of the Year
Buck Angel – Transsexual Performer of the Year

Seriously, there are so many awesome movies and performers nominated, I could spend the whole day making a list. Why don’t you just check out the whole list here.

Congrats to one and all!

One thought on “2010 AVN Award Nominations Are Here!”

  1. I am so excited about all of the wonderful people being nominated, and even more excited that you did not publish the entire list of nominees.

    When I looked at the list on another site, the list of categories was a little hard to stomach.

    How can I be so pro hot, queer porn, and get so irritated by a list because the categories appear to be written by a 13 year old boy?
