There are a lot of different awards existing in the porn industry, despite the fact that it may be weird for an average person to discover porn movies and actors get awards. However, the porn industry is a huge industry with budgets of billions of US dollars, and some directors and actors are stars there. So, little surprise the industry has its own awards.

The Most Widespread Categories Of Awards

There are different awards and there are many of them, bigger and smaller. It seems more reasonable to discuss categories of awards that are given the most often. The industry has the following categories:

  • The Best Pornographic Film Actor (in different countries);
  • The Best Pornographic Film Actress (in different countries);
  • Gay Pornographic Film;
  • UK Adult Film and Television;
  • Sexual Freedom;
  • Pornhub;
  • Pinky Ribbon;
  • Feminist Porn;
  • Barcelona International Erotic Film Festival;
  • Brussels International Festival of Eroticism;
  • Australian Adult Industry.

Such a solid list of categories of awards shows that the industry of porn video and adult movies and television is a rich and prosperous one, with a lot of financially successful people working in it. Moreover, they are famous in their field, similar to Hugh Hefner, in some sense.

Sasha Grey and Her Awards

To imagine the fame and success of some of the most popular porn actors, check the impressive list of awards received by the well-known porn star Sasha Grey. Overall, she has 13 prizes won over several years, but she was nominated for more than 60 categories. Her actual prizes include such wins as Best Three-way Sex Scene, Best Group Sex Scene, Best Oral Sex Scene, Female Performer of the Year, Best Anal Sex Scene, Favourite Oral Starlet, Mainstream Adult Media Favourite, etc.

Despite the fact that most people, even if they watch porn from time to time, believe that this is not a decent activity and job, and that people that actually have roles in those movies should be ashamed of this job, industry giants do not share this opinion. Considering how much money these people – actors, cameramen, directors – earn and bring to the studios and companies, the industry is interested in stimulating the desire of potential collaborators to work harder and try to deserve money and fame.

While average people believe that these studios that film porn movies are illegal or half legal and generally try not to show up often in news or anywhere else, this is not at all true. This industry, as much as any other, shows off with the success they make. In countries where making porn is legal, like the US, porn companies bring huge taxes to the state. Therefore, they feel totally allowed to hold their own festivals, celebrations, and awards. So the impressive list of prizes is little surprise, because these people work in an entertainment industry, and their job is as hard as anybody else’s.
