Award-Winning Movies

The Devil in Miss JonesAwards season has finally ended for the year in Hollywood, but we’re never tired of talking about quality porn. You’ve heard about the award-winning movies from the last couple of years – titles such as this year’s AVN champion “Speed,” and other recent winners including “Deviance” and the popular, weirdly hot animated feature “Pornomation 3.” Then there are undisputed classics that predate AVN, the kind of movies even those who don’t watch porn have heard of: perennial bestseller “Debbie Does Dallas,” masterful porn-art fusion “The Devil in Miss Jones,” and big-natural-tit classic “Deep Inside Annie Sprinkle.” But there are many award-winning porn flicks deserving of more love; here are some from the last four decades.

Made in 1979, “Talk Dirty to Me” won the 1980 Best Film award from the Adult Film Association of America. This movie proves it’s possible to combine a good plot with hot sex. It’s a tale of seduction Talk Dirty to Mecarried out as only the late, great John Leslie could do: dirty-talking, rough around the edges, sometimes aggressive, but irresistible to many women – particularly to beautiful housewife Jessie St. James. She’s been craving the kind of filthy-mouthed fuck he dishes out, and while her prudish but loving husband is away, she becomes putty in John’s hands. The women in this film fall for his lines because he’s the master at his best. It will remind you of what it was like before plastic surgery was common, and there’s plenty of bush for body hair enthusiasts to enjoy. “Talk Dirty to Me” is a must-see for fans of late ’70s porn and couples who want something different. This highly-charged erotic classic was the first in a series that launched other great movies, including the 1985 AVN Best Film Award winner “Talk Dirty to Me 3.”

When the AVN Awards began in 1984, “Puss ‘n Boots” took the Best Screenplay – Film trophy Puss 'n Boots(yes, pornos have screenplays). Follow the randy adventures of Puss (Kelly Nichols), a hell-raising Army private who’s doing everything she can to get discharged. She tries to get knocked up, but finds out her would-be baby daddy has had a vasectomy. Next Puss tries to get discharged as a conscientious objector, but is transferred to the typing pool. Finally, Puss fakes insanity in hopes of being given a Section Eight, but ends up with a medal when she scares away a group of biker chicks looking for a fight. Along the way, we see that the women in the barracks are horny broads, into things like voyeurism, lesbian shower action, and kinky sex. Genuinely funny and hot, “Puss ‘n Boots” is like an X-rated, female “Stripes.” Video X Pix has brought this and many other adult classics back to life, including “Roommates,” another “sex and the single girl” classic starring Kelly Nichols (and the 1982 winner of “Best Film” from the Adult Film Association of America). You won’t see a more frank and unblinking depiction of female sexuality in the ’80s.

Dog WalkerWe’ve already praised John Leslie as an actor, but as a director he brought us one of the best adult films of the 1990s. “Dog Walker” was shot on film and earned many awards, from Best Director and Best Couples Sex Scene – Film at the 1995 AVN Awards to XRCO’s Best Film of the Year. Steven St. Croix is jewel thief Tito, who’s pissed off the mob and must pay. He’s beaten up and forced to watch other men fuck his wife, Kristi Lynn, who informs him that the mob owns her and he was only renting her. Meanwhile, Tito sees surreal visions of a beautiful woman in black, often walking a dog. It’s the stunning Christina Angel, who remains unobtainable as he struggles through an erotic maze and watches her fuck other men. By the time they consummate their attraction in the highly sensual, award-winning scene, it’s too late for Tito to save himself. Don’t expect the hardcore sex of today’s rougher standards, but this is a classic that any fan of feature porn should see.

Breakin' 'Em In 12In 2006, AEBN introduced the VOD Awards to recognize movies that fans voted on with their dollars. The winners of these trophies are the movies fans have viewed the most, so if you trust what’s popular with fellow porn lovers more than you trust awards committees, then you’ll be interested to know that, for example, “Breakin’ ‘Em In 12” was the Best Gonzo Movie 2010 (released in 2009). This comes as no surprise given that box cover girl Tanner Mayes is one of the hottest young babes in the biz and won the VOD Awards’ Best Newcomer award that year. Best Overall Movie 2010 was “White Mommas,” an all-sex interracial flick starring such hall of fame MILFs as Ginger Lynn and Lisa Ann. You can see all the winners from this year and every year back to 2006 at the official VOD Awards site.
