AVN has announced that porn superstars Sunny Leone and Bree Olson will be the hosts of the upcoming 2012 AVN Awards. As the single biggest and most prestigious awards show in the adult industry, hosting the even is considered a huge honor. The 2012 AVN Awards will be held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on January 21st, 2012. Both woman, who will each be first-time hosts of the event, say they are excited for the opportunity.
To quote directly from the official AVN press release announcing the hosting decision…
“Hosting the AVN Awards is something that every girl in the industry wishes they could do,” Leone told AVN. “It’s the biggest event of the year for every performer, the most high profile. I’m definitely up for the challenge. I’ll be in front of my peers, friends and people I’ve known for close to ten years now. I think that will make it easier for me. I’m honored and truly beyond excited.’
“To know that I’m hosting with Bree is incredible,” Leone said. “She’s so beautiful and nice. I think we’ll be a great pair together.”
Olson said that she met Leone during an industry event in Florida and believes the two will make a perfect pair.
“I’m so excited to work with Sunny,” Olson said. “She’s just gorgeous and the sweetest little thing. She’s totally my type; I love brunettes. She’s just stunning, drop dead gorgeous. I can’t say enough about her. Oh boy, I’m already getting excited!”
Both Sunny Leone and Bree Olson are already certified porn industry starlets. Sunny Leone is a long-time model and the 2003 Penthouse Pet of the Year. In 2005, she signed an exclusive performance contract with Vivid Entertainment, releasing her first film, Sunny, that same year. In 2007, Leone’s performance in the film Sunny Loves Matt led to her being nominated for three separate AVN Awards. Leone was also an AVN Female Performer of the Year nominee that same year. Much more than just a pretty face, Sunny Leone became an entrepreneur in 2008 when she founded Sunlust Entertainment, her own adult production company, distributing her films through Vivid.
Bree Olson is the 2008 AVN Best New Starlet award winner and one of the most recognizable names in porn. Entering the industry in 2006, Olson became an exclusive contract performer for Adam & Eve in 2007 and remained under contract until 2010. Since moving on from Adam & Eve, Bree Olson has remained busy, to say the least. She’s performed for several different adult studios and recently appeared on the covers to both Penthouse and Playboy. Currently focusing on her mainstream entertainment career, Bree Olson gained a bit of notoriety this year after being one of Charlie Sheen’s multiple live-in girlfriends, whom he has infamously nicknamed “the goddesses”.
