    Wicked Pictures and Associated Lines Receive Nearly 120 2018 AVN Awards Nominations

    LOS ANGELES, CA – (November 30, 2017) – Canoga Park-based adult industry powerhouse Wicked Pictures and the lines it distributes have received nearly 120 2018 AVN Awards nominations. Nearly half of this impressive tally went to six outstanding releases: the Brad Armstrong blockbusters An Inconvenient Mistress, Ethni*City, Takers, and jessica drake is Wicked, Axel Braun’s smash hit Justice League XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, and Stormy Daniels' romantic Texas-filmed drama Unbridled. (A full list of the nominations appears below.)

    These acclaimed productions are landmark achievements which took each of the studio's in-house imprints - including Wicked Comix, Wicked Passions, Wicked Showcase, Wicked Blockbuster, Wicked Feature, and Wicked All-Sex - to new heights of innovation and excellence while spotlighting the beauty, talent, intelligence and sensuality of iconic Wicked Girls Stormy Daniels, jessica drake and Asa Akira.

    In addition to celebrating the studio’s formidable contract talent and diverse in-house lines, AVN gave many additional nominations to product distributed by Wicked on behalf of such international production companies as Dorcel, JoyBear Pictures and The 2018 nominations also recognized the ongoing success of the Wicked Sensual Care line of luxurious lubricants and enhancers.Veteran contract filmmaker Brad Armstrong's timely and suspenseful relationship drama An Inconvenient Mistress tied Daniels' Unbridled as Wicked’s most acclaimed original feature, receiving such coveted nominations as Best Action/Thriller, Best Actress (jessica drake), Best Actor (Ryan Driller), Best Cinematography, Best Director-Feature, Best Editing, Best Non-Sex Performance (Carl Johnson), and Best Three-Way B/B/G (jessica drake, Michael Vegas & Ryan Driller).

    His intricate urban drama Ethni*City earned Best Drama, Best Screenplay, Best Soundtrack, Best Supporting Actor (Prince Yahshua), Best Supporting Actress (Kira Noir), and Best Three-Way Sex Scene G/G/B (Chanell Heart, Yasmine de Leon & Prince Yahshua). The darkly erotic sci-fi drama Takers snared the versatile filmmaker Best Action/Thriller and Best Actor nods, as well as a nomination for Best Makeup, while the film's star, Wicked Girl Asa Akira, was recognized with a Mainstream Star of the Year nomination.Armstrong's groundbreaking Wicked Showcase releasejessica drake is Wickedearned Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene (jessica drake, Anikka Albrite, Angela White, Vicki Chase, Abella Danger & Brandy Aniston), Best Art Direction, Best Director Non-Feature, Best Marketing Campaign - Individual Project, Best Oral Sex Scene (jessica drake, Ricky Johnson, Rob Piper, Isiah Maxwell & Dirk Huge), Best Star Showcase, and, in a first for both the studio and the mainstream adult film industry, Best Transsexual Sex Scene (jessica Drake, Venus Lux, Aubrey Kate & Domino Presley).
    In recognition of his many triumphs across such diverse genres, it should come as no surprise Armstrong was recognized with AVN's coveted Director of the Year nomination. And in addition to her rich and varied array of acting and sex scene nominations, writer-director-producer-host jessica drake’s renowned media profile, tireless public advocacy and many commitments to charitable causes were recognized with a Mainstream Star of the Year nom.Parody Master Axel Braun's Justice League XXX: An Axel Braun Parody not only beat its mainstream inspiration into release by nearly two months, it emerged as Wicked's most acclaimed production of the year, receiving 13 major nominations, including Best Actress (Romi Rain), Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Director - Feature, Best Editing, Best Group Sex Scene (Romi Rain, Xander Corvus, Tyler Nixon & Giovanni Francesco), Best Makeup, Best Marketing Campaign - Individual Project, Best Parody, Best Soundtrack, Best Special Effects, Best Supporting Actor (Tyler Nixon), and Best Supporting Actress (Charlotte Stokely).

    Fittingly, the overall excellence of Braun's output for the year earned him a Director of the Year nomination. With Justice League XXX and Exposed, the 2018 AVN Awards mark the first time in adult history that a father and son are competing against each other in the Best Director - Feature category.

    About Wicked Pictures
    Established in Canoga Park, California on March 1st, 1993, Wicked Pictures was formed with a firm commitment to producing quality adult productions created specifically for women and couples, a decision the company has stayed true to for over twenty-three years, even when this mission has seemed at odds with prevailing economic trends. And after a health scare in 1998 led many companies to begin instituting policies of mandatory condom usage, Wicked is the only producer still safeguarding performers’ health by continuing to adhere to this policy over seventeen years later. Wicked continues to diversify and expand its commitment to couples’ intimacy through such initiatives as the romance-driven Wicked Passions label, the AVN / XBIZ award-winning franchises Wicked Comix and Wicked Fairy Tales, the award-winning educational series jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex, and the Wicked Sensual Care line of luxurious lubricants and enhancers. These forward-thinking ventures allow Wicked to explore new ground while staying true to its core vision of producing quality adult entertainment and strengthening its appeal to women and couples.
