AVN Announces Behind-the-Scenes Hosts for 2015 Awards Show

LAS VEGAS, Nev.AVN Media Network, organizer of the annual AVN Awards, has named adult superstars Dana DeArmond and Karlie Montana Red Carpet Hosts for the 2015 AVN Awards, with superstar performer/director Joanna Angel serving as the show’s Backstage Host.

The most prestigious event in the adult entertainment industry, the AVN Awards take place at The Joint in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Saturday, January 24.

As Red Carpet Hosts, Dana DeArmond and Karlie Montana will have a highly visible and prestigious assignment, where they will interview a variety of adult industry performers and comment on the progress of the evening. DeArmond and Montana will be among the hundreds of media members, including those from more than two dozen nations, who are expected to attend the adult industry’s premier event. Their interviews will be featured as part of AVN’s annual cable TV special on the show.

In her role as the official Backstage Insider, adult performer/director Joanna Angel will cover the unscripted, highly improvisational, spontaneously sexual, and hilarious behind-the-scenes action during the 2015 AVN Awards show. Her interviews will compose a big portion of the cable broadcast.


Dana DeArmond, most famously known as “The Internet’s Girlfriend,” gained popularity as an Internet personality with over 900,000 friends on MySpace before she ever stepped in front of a camera. A much-respected performer since 2005, with 1000 scenes to her credit, the beautiful, leggy brunette was CAVR’s Siren of the Year in 2008 and was honored with a 2012 AVN Award for Best Girl/Girl Scene, for her performance in Belladonna: Sexual Explorer. She is nominated for five separate AVN Awards this year, including Best Boy/Girl Scene, Best Girl/Girl Scene, and Most Outrageous Sex Scene.

“I am very excited I was asked to host the red carpet for the second year in a row.  Last year was a lot of fun and now that I sort of have an idea what I'm doing – a little joke – I think this year will be even better,” DeArmond said. “With me on red carpet duty, and Tommy Pistol as one of the co-hosts, this might be the most entertaining AVN Awards show ever.”

Redhead stunner Karlie Montana is an Arizona native who has appeared in over 100 adult films since age 18. She has worked for such notable companies as Vivid, Hustler, Evil Angel, Club Jenna, Elegant Angel, and more, leading to numerous nominations for the AVN Awards. Montana’s 2015 AVN Awards noms include Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene, Best Group Sex Scene, and Best Solo Tease Performance.

“I am beyond excited to be picked as a Red Carpet Host for this year’s AVN Awards!” exclaimed Montana. “It’s such an honor to be chosen by AVN for such a special gig. I plan to have a blast interviewing the sexy talent and getting to perv on the new girls to see who I might want to bang. I’ve been in this business 10 years now, so I’m happy to finally get involved in the show! It’s been a long time coming – hope you’re ready for me AVN!”

Adult performer/director Joanna Angel is the owner of BurningAngel Entertainment, which pioneered a new species of erotica known as "alt porn." Already a multiple AVN Award winner, Angel and her company have been honored with 16 nominations for the 2015 show, including nods for Best Director-Parody, Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene, Best Comedy, Best POV Release, Best Big Bust Release, and Best POV Sex Scene.

“This is truly an honor to have such an integral part of the biggest event in of the year in the adult industry.” Angel said. “I know very well what an incredible feeling it is to win an AVN award and I want to capture everyone’s honest and raw emotions in the interviews I conduct back stage. Tommy Pistol and I started in this industry together – and I think it's amazing that he'll be up front while I'm in the back. It's like we're double teaming everyone!”

“Dana, Karlie, and Joanna are amazingly talented and among the best female performers in adult,” said AVN CEO Theo Sapoutzis. “They are smart, beautiful, energetic, and have a great sense of humor. I think the fans will agree that they will definitely add a lot to the 2015 AVN Awards.”

Over 300 adult industry performers are highlighted at the AVN Awards Show Red Carpet each year. Industry superstars and principals will all be available for photos and interviews during what Entertainment Tonight has dubbed the “Oscars of the adult industry.” The AVN Awards is a must-attend, must-see event, with plenty of interview and content opportunities for any media outlet, and for viewers of all ages and demographics.

Adult superstars Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol will co-host the 2015 AVN Awards with popular standup comic Danielle Stewart serving as comedic host.
