Ceremony information[edit]

A new venue, the 12,000-seat Mandalay Bay Events Center, was not the only change made at the 2007 AVN Awards show. For the first time, porn fans could purchase tickets to attend the show; previously only industry insiders were permitted to attend.[13]

While the Best DVD award was discontinued, several new awards debuted: Director of the Year (Body of Work), Contract Star of the Year, Underrated Starlet of the Year (Unrecognized Excellence), Best Animated Release, Best Hard-Edged All-Sex Release, Best Interracial Series, Best POV Series and Best POV Sex Scene. Additionally, the Best Specialty Series was split among five categories—Big Bust, MILF, Squirting and Other, along with Best Transsexual Series; Best Ethnic-Themed Series was split into three—Asian, Black and Latin; and Best Online Marketing Campaign was split into Company and Individual Project categories.[8]

Several other people participated in the production of the ceremony. Mark Stone served as musical director for the ceremony and also produced the comedy clips, mostly spoofing TV infomercials and starring Ron Jeremy, Anthony Hardwood, Kurt Lockwood, Lexington Steele and several others. Members of John Stagliano's Fashionistas gave a special performance of the Fashionistas Las Vegas revue.[1]

Wicked Pictures created and distributed a DVD of the year's show.[1]
