The Pornhub Awards 2019: A Full Preview

Award season starts in the Fall with the Second Annual Pornhub Awards to be held in Los Angeles during October 2019.

In 2018, the internet porn hosting giants, Pornhub, made history when they launched their first ever annual awards ceremony. Aiming to compete with similar industry events like the AVNs, the Pornhub Awards went down a storm last year with celebrity hosts, performances and a live stream of the ceremony across Pornhub. In their second event, the internet porn giants have once again pulled out all the stops to make their red carpet evening a glittering, sexy and fun celebration.

In this feature piece, we take a closer look at this trendsetting awards event and bring you all the details of the nominees for the Second Annual Pornhub Awards.

The Pornhub Awards Ceremony

Hosted for the first time in 2018, the Pornhub Awards recognizes the talents and popularity of the best stars in the adult industry. Most of the awards are given out based on actual data taken from the world’s biggest tube porn hosting site itself. In this way, there are no judging panels and the most watched stars and studios get the recognition they deserve.

Pornhub is one of the world’s top porn hosting tube sites with the number one spot vacillating between them and XVideos. Regularly ranked in the top ten websites worldwide, the site plays host to more than 3 billion visitors each month and is perhaps the best placed source of porn viewing trends across the globe. For this reason, the inaugural awards ceremony were well received by the adult entertainment industry as well as the amateur community that makes up much of the site’s content.

The 2018 awards were held at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles and were hosted by the porn superstar, Asa Akira. The creative director for the event was none other than Kanye West.

West was responsible for styling the ceremony, performers and presenters as well as taking to the stage with Lil Pimp for an exclusive performance of his song I Love It. Rumour has it that West also had a hand in styling the phallic-shaped trophies that were designed for the event.

The event will once again be hosted by Asa Akira but creative control for the Second Annual Pornhub Awards for 2019 will be given over to Willo Perron & Associates; the company whose projects have helped brand artists like Florence & The Machine, Marilyn Manson and Jay-Z.

This year’s musical director will be Benny Blanco with the show’s statue undergoing a revamp by the British graphic designer and art director, Peter Saville. The man behind the artwork on iconic album covers for David Byrne, New Order and Brian Eno, Saville has designed a statuette that is less phallic. The inspiration behind this ‘molecular’ design was the sex hormones testosterone and oestrogen.
