Adam Film World Announces Annual Award Winners

LOS ANGELES — Adult consumer magazine Adam Film World Guide announced today its award recipients for the best titles and performers of 2007.

"Each year seems to be getting better than the last, which is fairly impressive considering that you think the industry has done everything that it possible can do," AFWG Editor-in-Chief Anthony Petkovich told AVN. "But, they keep producing nastier stuff, the girls continue to get prettier, and the features have budgets that seem to be increasing and becoming more mainstream."

Big winners include Wicked Pictures, Zero Tolerance, Jules Jordan Video, and critics' darling SexZ Pictures.

SexZ Pictures' futuristic thriller Upload jacked the awards for Best Movie and Best Director (Eli Cross). The studio achieved a similar feat in 2006 with Cross's Corruption.

"Upload, of course, had great direction, impressive sets, and fairly good acting - except for Eva Angelina who mumbled through her lines," noted Petkovich. "But there was a lot of technical jargon. I think her Brando-esque mumblings helped get her through it."

Petkovich, however, remains a big fan of Angelina (AVN's Best Actress-Video winner) adding, "Her scenes are great and she's finally doing anal and DPs. She's really cooking now."

The magazine named Belladonna as their Best Directrix of the Year for her gleefully twisted Iodine Girl. "She directs like a guy," explained Petkovich. "She can see things from a male viewer's perspective, which is what you want to do if you're gonna be a female director in porn. You don't want to direct for the girls; you want to direct for the guys because they're the ones who are going to be watching. And, that's especially true for a Belladonna movie which is pretty edgy and no-holds-barred." 

Wicked Pictures scored 6 victories including Best Comedy (Operation: Desert Stormy), Best Epic (The Craving), and Best Screenplay (Coming Home). Contract players Stormy Daniels and Kaylani Lei also nabbed awards for Actress of the Year and Porn Cumback of the Year respectively.

"The Craving had eye-popping sets and interesting horror-themed stories with hot sex and creative plot twists-very 'Night Gallery' and 'Twilight Zone'-ish," Petkovich described. "And Stormy ... she just keeps improving her work every year."

In performer catogories, Bree Olson was named Starlet of the Year; Club Jenna girl Lela Star took Best Latin Starlet; Milf of the Year went to Sienna West; and Lexi Belle awoke to discover she was AFWG's Teen Dream of the Year.

But it's Female Performer of the Year Annette Schwarz who gets Petkovich's utmost respect.

"Annette does anything and anyone anytime. She prefers cum in the eye and, if she doesn't get it in her eye, she'll put it in her eye," he said. "I've been on a set where she put cum from 3 or 4 guys directly on her eye-everyone was impressed with that. She's a blonde Amazonian type, fabulously filthy." 

Rivaling Schwarz's outrageousness is Chatsworth Pictures' Cuckold, named Most Outrageous Series.

"The Johnson Brothers are just total maniacs but in the best possible sense of word," enthused Petkovich. "Great satirists. We thought Cuckold was a really great idea and, of course, they were the first company to come out with a cuckold series-now everybody is doing it-and are still doing it best as far as we're concerned."

Lifetime Achievement nods went to industry legends Amber Lynn and Michael Ninn.
