Last Wednesday, the nominations for the AVN Awards, considered the Oscars of the adult industry, were announced. Hosted by Digital Playground's Kayden Kross and Wicked Pictures' Kirsten Price, the 2010 edition will take place on January 9th inside the Palms Casino Resort at the Pearl Theater in Las Vegas. As in previous years, it will be held the week of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, which will be on January 7th-10th at the Sands Expo and Convention Center."Awards will be given out in 125 categories, including Best Video Feature, Best Parody, Female Performer of the Year, Best Adult Website and numerous Best Sex Scene awards," according to AVN. "Nominations were culled from submissions by producers of products released between Oct. 1, 2008 and Sept. 30, 2009. 'We counted 6,897 actual new releases, from a total of 13,056 titles put out on DVD (including comps, amateurs and re-releases) this year,' said Paul Fishbein, president of AVN Media Network." "'We had a tough time even getting down to 15 in any particular category,' said Dan Miller, executive editor of AVN. 'Numbers 16 to 30 in any category were often as strong as the top choices. There was that much good product this year.'"
