What is it about AVN awards program?

I’m not sure how long they’ve been broadcast, but I’ve noticed that Showtime has carried it for at least a couple of years. Anyway, is it just me, or do the actors and actresses seem even sleazier than they do in most of their porn movies? I haven’t been able to watch it for long, as I don’t like lingering on emotions like pity or disgust.

I’ve gotta think that someone behind the scenes is going for some kind of parody send-up of other awards programs, but if that’s the case it’s not nearly witty enough.

You should read Big Red Son by David Foster Wallace. It’s the first essay in his collection Consider The Lobster. It’s the story he wrote when he was assigned to cover the AVN awards show for an entertainment magazine. It is hilarious, and I think you’ll find that the people involved in this industry are as sleazy as you are capable of imagining, and pretty much incapable of irony.

I remember listening to the Howard Stern Show years ago. They were ripping on this actress because she started to cry durring her acceptance speech for “Best Anal”.

Seriously, how f’d up do you have to be when you think winning “Best Anal” scene is the apex of your life?
