LOS ANGELESHot Video magazine will host the Press Party for the Hot d'Or Awards Show on Oct. 19 on the River Palace Boat, the night before the ceremony in Paris.

It is Hot d'Or tradition to have an extensive press conference the day before the show. This year's nominees will meet the media while cruising on the Paris River. Press members and stars will board the boat at 6 p.m. with the cocktail/dinner cruise set to start at 7. The boat will return to the marina at 10 p.m.

The 2009 awards show will be this Tuesday, Oct. 20 at Salle Wagram in Paris, which is close to the Champs-Elysées. The event is the first Hot d’Or since 2001, and will commemorate the 20th anniversary of Hot Video, which is France’s leading adult magazine.

Several of the award categories are specific to the American market. For a list of nominees, click here.
