More about AVN (source Wikipedia)

Adult Video News (also called AVN or AVN Magazine) is an American trade journal that covers the adult video industry. The New York Times notes that AVN is to pornographic films what Billboard is to records. AVN sponsors an annual convention, called the Adult Entertainment Expo or AEE, in Las VegasNevada along with an award show for the adult industry modeled after the Oscars.[3][4]

AVN rates adult films and tracks news developments in the industry. An AVN issue can feature over 500 movie reviews.[5][6] The magazine is about 80% ads and is targeted at adult-video retailers. Author David Foster Wallace has described AVN articles to be more like infomercials than articles, but he also described the AVN magazine as “sort of the Variety of the US porn industry.”

More about AVN Awards (source Wikipedia)

The AVN Awards are movie awards sponsored and presented by the American adult video industry trade magazine AVN (Adult Video News) to recognize achievement in various aspects of the creation and marketing of American pornographic movies. They are called the “Oscars of porn”.

The awards are divided into nearly 100 categories, some of which are analogous to industry awards offered in other film and video genres and others that are specific to pornographic/erotic film and video.

AVN sponsored the first AVN Awards ceremony in February 1984. The award ceremony occurs in early January during the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las VegasNevada. Since 2008, the ceremony has aired in a form edited for time on Showtime, which is usually broadcast in a 90-minute time slot.

Awards for gay adult video were a part of the AVN Awards from the 1986 ceremony through the 1998 ceremony. The increasing number of categories made the show unwieldy. For the 1999 ceremony AVN Magazine began hosting the GayVN Awards, an annual adult movie award event for gay adult video. However, it appears that the GayVN Awards have been discontinued; the last award year was 2010.

AEE is the largest pornography industry trade show in the United States.  The 2007 AVN Expo had over 30,000 attendees, which included 355 exhibiting companies.
