Dana DeArmond, Nicole Aniston To Host AVN Awards Red Carpet

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—AVN Media Network, organizer of the annual AVN Awards, announces adult superstars Dana DeArmond and Nicole Aniston as Red Carpet hosts for the 2014 AVN Awards. The largest event in the adult entertainment industry, the Awards take place at The Joint in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Saturday, January 18, 2014.

The Red Carpet hosts serve as a highly visible and prestigious assignment for DeArmond and Aniston, who will be interviewing and commenting on the bevy of adult industry performers, highlighted during the star-studded media event. In 2013, over 25 nations had media reporting on the Red Carpet, heralding the never-ending fascination with porn and the business behind it.

“I'm very excited to be hosting the Red Carpet at the AVN Awards this year,” says Dana. “I've been attending the Awards for years; I've presented at the Awards a couple of times, received tons of nominations over the years, and even won an AVN Award. Hosting the Red Carpet is the perfect next step for me. I think this is a great opportunity for me to bring my sense of humor to the show, and I'm going to have a lot of fun with it!”

Dana DeArmond, most famously known as “The Internet’s Girlfriend,” gained popularity before she ever stepped in front of a camera, as an Internet personality with over 300,000 friends on MySpace. A much-respected performer since 2005, with nearly 500 films 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 Female Performer of the Year – the fourth year Dana has been nominated for the honor.

“I’m honored to have been chosen to be a Red Carpet host and additional personality contributing to the show,” states Nicole. “I greatly appreciate being involved in making this the most entertaining year for the AVN Awards!”

2013 Penthouse Pet of the Year and San Diego native Nicole Aniston hit the proverbial porn scene running in 2010. Appearing in over 100 films, including noteworthy performances in several high-profile porn parodies, the blonde stunner won a 2013 AVN Award for Most Outrageous Sex Scene, for Men in Black: A Hardcore Parody.

“Dana and Nicole are two of the best female performers working today in our industry,” said AVN CEO, Theo Sapoutzis. “Their beauty and sexy attitudes, combined with their natural sense of humor, is sure to make the Red Carpet a fun and entertaining pre-Awards-Show event. We look forward to watching them interact with all of our Red Carpet attendees and the media, and we’re pleased to have them be an integral part of our pre-show festivities.”
