    Ceremony information

    For the first time, content released solely on video-on-demand is eligible for AVN Awards consideration. AVN announced VOD content would be eligible in the Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene, Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene, Best Oral Sex Scene and Best Anal Sex Scene categories. As usual, several of the categories were renamed and redefined and a new niche category was added, Best Polyamory Movie.

    AVN has also stated that porn star James Deen, who has been the subject of publicized assault allegations, will continue to be eligible for awards in categories he or his production company has been nominated for, since the awards "do not reflect an official position on any other matter involving James Deen."
