AVN 2014: The Winners – The Scenes

2014 AVN Awards We’ve got the guys and girls, the newly elected brightest stars in porn, well and truly covered here at Mr. Pink’s. So now let’s take a moment to take a closer look at what led the winners to the Hard Rock stage in Las Vegas this January. The movies, their directors and producers and gaffers and grips, and obviously the performers are all worthy of praise, of course, but it’s the scenes themselves, the sex itself, that is most worthy of our post-award ceremony attention – and what a smorgasbord of incredible sex we were treated to throughout the months of 2013.

Riley Reid and MandingoArguably the most prized of all scene-related trophies, Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene was awarded to Riley Reid and Mandingo in the latter’s Mandingo Massacre 6, while Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene went to Remy LaCroix and (once again) Riley Reid for Girl Fever. Group activity remained a highly contested arena but saw Bonnie Rotten and four of porn’s most vital men take home Best Group Sex Scene for their work in The Gang Bang of Bonnie Rotten, while the Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene trophies went home with Gracie Glam, Raven Rockette, and Mia Malkova for their feline-inspired turn in Jenna Haze’s Meow! 3.

In her first anal scene for Hard X’s Anikka, the blonde Ms. Albrite took on her real-life partner Mick Blue and expanded her career prospects and audience in the process. Winner of Best Oral Sex Scene, Skin Diamond, also took home the award for Best Double Penetration Sex Scene also from her self-titled Elegant Angel feature, taking both Marco Banderas and Prince Yahshua simultaneously. Remy LaCroix didn’t stop at Girl/Girl and was also awarded a trophy for her three-way with Manuel Ferrara and this year’s AVN mainstay Riley Reid in a scorching scene from Remy 2. Best Solo Sex Scene went to Maddy O’Reilly for her turn as sexually frustrated Kansas farm girl Dorothy Gale in Not the Wizard of Oz XXX and, after being appointed one of Jules Jordan’s Ultimate Fuck Toys, sweet-faced newcomer Kennedy Leigh shone in the year’s Best POV Sex Scene in her self-titled installment of the same series, ably assisted (and seduced, and penetrated, and decorated) by Jordan himself in one of his best recent efforts.

Apparently one of the new categories for 2014, Best Safe Sex Scene was awarded to husband and wife pair, Brad Armstrong and Jessica Drake for their condom-clad humping in Wicked Pictures’ Sexpionage: The Drake Chronicles, but, as is usually the case with the pornographic arts, that scene was nowhere near as memorable or mind-blowing as one on the opposite end of the spectrum. Ever the forward-looking entrepreneurs, Kelly and Ryan Madison joined with one of porn’s most debauched women, Chanel Preston, for 2013’s Most Outrageous Sex Scene. Matched with a hard-fucking, multiple-load-shooting machine in Ryan, the glamorously gussied-up Chanel sweats, gasps, cries, whimpers, and quivers through one hell of a rough scene in the Madisons’ cinematic feature Get My Belt.

If that doesn’t give you enough stellar smut to last until next year (with repeat viewings, naturally), then mister, I just don’t know what to do for ya.

AVN 2014: The Winners – The Men

2014 AVN Awards

While it’s usually the women standing at the podium holding a glistening phallus that get the most attention at every annual AVN Awards, the men of porn are equally congratulated on their work in and out of the hottest pussy on the planet (if you can call that work). And it wasn’t just performers who got hailed as the year’s best at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this Saturday past, those behind the camera got their fair share of attention, too.

Continuing a string of unprecedented success stories, Axel Braun nabbed his fourth consecutive Director of the Year award while his films Man of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody and Iron Man XXX: An Axel Braun took home another two trophies and proved that all of the accolades might have finally gone to Herr Direktor’s head. The closest any other director or producer came to equaling Braun’s 2013 successes wasn’t very close at all, but you’ve still got to hand it to Manuel Ferrara: he not only shot an insanely wild reverse gangbang in late fall, he polished off the season as the man behind the winners of AVN’s Best All-Sex Release (Slutty & Sluttier 18), Best Anal Series (Evil Anal), and Best Continuing Series (Slutty & Sluttier). That, of course, is in addition to his fifth Male Performer of the Year trophy.

The other stud who no doubt left Vegas more professionally gratified than ever before was Best Actor Tommy Pistol. Having taken roles in everything from Thor XXX: An Axel Braun Parody to Combat Zone’s Vagina Worship to 3rd Degree’s Young Thighs in Knee Highs, Pistol spent much of his eighth year in porn assisting in the productions of others. With Band Sluts, though, he was handed a role tailor-made for his comedic and physical talents by his director and leading lady, Joanna Angel. The Burning Angel feature sees the two gag-happiest people in porn embark on a road trip in search of “fame, fortune, and fucking,” capturing every dismal artistic failure and boner-fied sexual conquest in a hilarious rock ‘n’ roll epic. Fuck Fellini and 81/2 and The Rutles and Zelig and all that shit! Band Sluts is the only mockumentary worth watching sans pants!

AVN 2014: The Winners – The Movies

2014 AVN Awards

The biggest winners at the 2014 AVN Awards might appear to have been the men and women winning individual prizes, but porn is still a features-based industry heavily reliant on home video sales. This means any feature winning a top prize at the “Oscars of Porn” is bound to skyrocket in popularity and see its studio, director, and stars riding a wave of post-awards momentum. This year there was one movie that outshone all others, Brad Armstrong’s dark cyborg-laden fantasy, Underworld.

Starring Armstrong’s wife and Wicked contract star, Jessica Drake, Underworld didn’t just take home the big prizes (Best Drama and Movie of the Year) but saw many of its contributors honored in their respective fields. Best Supporting Actor Xander Corvus and Best Feature Director Armstrong also saw awards for Art Direction, Cinematography, Editing, Packaging, and Screenplay granted to Underworld’s crew.

Winning slightly less major awards were feature films The Submission of Emma Marx (Best BDSM Movie), Grease XXX: A Parody and Man of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody (Best Parody – Comedy and Drama respectively), the Mason-directed Anikka (Best Star Showcase), The Temptation of Eve (Best Romance Release), Burning Angel’s Band Sluts (Best Comedy), Manuel Ferrara’s Evil Angel series Sluttier and Sluttier (Best Continuing Series), Marc Dorcel’s The Ingenuous (Best Foreign Release), and Evil Angel’s first Steele-directed feature, Lex Turns Evil (Best Interracial Release).

Oh, and last (and certainly least), the award for Clever Title of the Year went to Seymore Butts for Cirque du Hole-A. Oy vey.
