During the ceremony, AVN presented AVN Awards in nearly 90 categories honoring the best pornographic films released between Oct. 1, 2001 and Sept. 30, 2002.[2] The ceremony was produced by Gary Miller and directed by Mark Stone. Comedian Doug Stanhope co-hosted the show for the first time with adult film star Chloe.[1]

The Fashionistas won 10 awards including Best Film and Best Director—Film for John Stagliano. Breathless and The Private Gladiator each took home four trophies, The Ass Collector and Perfect earned three awards apiece and several more movies won two awards each.[3]
