I cannot help but beam that my prediction regarding the Best Transsexual Performer of the Year award went to Buck Angel. During my interview with Buck, I told him that I felt it in my nipples that he would be a winner.
My nipples were right! In case you have not yet heard of Buck, he is known as the Man with a Pussy. He's a female-to-male performer and hotter than hell. You should check out his movies and prepare yourself to be both shocked and turned on! We hope that we'll soon see his films on Hotmovies.
He's a stand-up guy who actually took the time to seek us out at the Hotmovies. It took a few tries, but eventually he caught up with us and we had an excellent chat. It was fun talking with Tommy Gunn because he really loves his job and he has a healthy outlook on life and on the industry. If you gentlemen out there want to learn what it takes to break into the adult entertainment field, watch our interview with him because it is full of very useful advice.
Keep in mind that breaking in to the adult entertainment industry is not only about how big a package you have! Tommy tells you what you should know about becoming a part of adult films. When we go to these adult events, I Lady Venus do the interviews and my partner Michael Diamond does the camera work. I can say that he definitely has a bit of a crush on her, and we both are excited to see that Mika won the Underrated Starlet of the Year Unrecognized Excellence award at this year's AVN show.
She's terribly sexy and she seems to have a great sense of humor, and it is great to see that she has been recognized for her efforts. Maybe they need to change the name of that award but I digress.
Another smoking hot award winner was Katsumi. The Challenge , and this was no surprise to either of us. Interviewing Katsumi is always a pleasure and she loves what she does for a living. Watching her movies, it is easy to see why Katsumi won these awards. Jean's performances never, ever disappoint! I spoke with Hilary at the AEE and she was terribly excited to be nominated. I imagine that she is flying high right now, basking in her wins. A hardcore vegetarian college student gets the deluxe bitch treatment from Ashley.
She is fucked with a sausage and has an array of raw meat thrown at her, in a total affront to her vegan ways. Is Ashley Blue a crazy bitch?
You bet she is! Her unorthodox scenes are one reason that so many of you jerk yourselves off watching her, right? Hey, in case you don't yet know, Ashley let us know that Max Hardcore and his bevy of beauties are now working with JM Productions!
Keep your eyes open for lots of new releases from Max and his luscious, lascivious, limber ladies. In a slightly different vein, and not surprisingly, the award for Crossover Star of the Year went to the queen of all that is porn, Jenna Jameson. We were hopeful that we might get the chance to speak with Jenna, but things didn't quite work out for us; however, while we were waiting for Jenna to show at the Club Jenna booth, we gained access to some of the hottest leading ladies in porn, the incomparable Club Jenna girls.
James were all kind enough to take some time to talk to me about their newest movies, their favorite non-porn activities, and how much they love their lives as Club Jenna girls.
The Club Jenna girls are all first-rate and as classy and as sexy as they come! While we were unable to interview Jenna Jameson , we have no complaints at all about the rest of the uber-hotties at Club Jenna. This sassy New York lady loves to spank both boys and girls, and you should know that she always gets off in her movies! If she doesn't get off, then you wont see the movie!
Michael and I started out in the industry doing FemDom and BDSM videos, so we are happy to see that the fetish community is finally getting recognition in the adult industry. I am not sure how it is possible, but each time I see extreme nasty girl Belladonna , she just gets sexier and sexier. Right now her hair is cropped super short and her body is still rocking even after having a baby. We love Belladonna's juicy ass! Of course, there are others who accepted this award along with Belladonna.
Pete , and Rocco Siffredi. The Challenge should not be missed and you can check it out right now at Hotmovies. Not only did he shoot the stars strutting down the red carpet, but he was also honored to be one of only a few photographers who were allowed access to the awards show itself. He has some amazing photos of the stars accepting their awards, so be sure to check them out as well at http: Michael will now fill you in on what you didn't see in the behind-the-scenes goings on at the AVN Awards show.
Photographing at the AVN Awards show - Michael Diamond Although this is the third year that we attended the AVN expo and award show, marks the first year that I was invited to photograph the event. This year, I was given the unique honor of being permitted to photograph both on the red carpet, as well as inside the award show! I was included among only 4 official AVN photographers who were permitted to shoot inside the venue. Because the event was held at Mandalay Bay, instead of at the Venetian as it was in prior years, the stricter fire regulations created a very limited amount of space to photograph.
In order to photograph the presentation of the awards, I was limited to shoot in one area, which was very far away from the stage. Thankfully, I was able to obtain a telephoto lens so I could shoot at such an extreme distance.
On the red carpet, photographers jostled for position, squabbling like frustrated paparazzi to squeeze in the small space that was allocated. About half of the entire space was occupied by Playboy TV, as well as other mainstream media.
One thing was certain, the AVN show is becoming much more mainstream, with media coverage from NBC, Newsweek, and about 20 freelance photographers including myself. For over an hour, the gems of the porn industry strolled up the red carpet, stopping every 3 feet to pose for the row of photographers.
While I had a great time, it was frustrating to be trapped behind a barricade, able to only shoot from one angle. Nevertheless, I had a great spot, the lighting was perfect, and I'm pretty happy with all of the photos from the red carpet.
I recognized many of the ladies who I've had the pleasure of having on my Sybian, including: Once the stars arrived, it was time for the show to begin. I was ushered into the giant amphitheater and assigned my spot. Fortunately I scored a telephoto lens earlier in the day, so I was able to shoot the stage from my very distant vantage point. Over people attended the AVN Awards this year, as it was open to the public.
For the most part it was a typical award show, and was kept rolling along by the hostess Wicked contract star Jessica Drake and co-host comedian Jim Norton. The highlight of the evening was a 5-minute performance that was staged by John Stagliano of Fashionistas Safado , complete with high-flying aerialists. Buck Cherry closed the evening with a performance of "Crazy Bitch. I want to thank HotMovies.
I just spent the past 18 hours editing over photos, so much of the evening is a blur for me.
