Zero Tolerance Entertainment Press Release: ZT Receives Multiple AVN Nominations
(December 16, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA) The AVN nominations for the 2014 awards show are in, and Zero Tolerance Entertainment has scooped up a lot of nods, including Best Comedy, Best Parody – Comedy, and Best New Line.
“It feels good to be recognized for our hard work this year,” says Domenick Bongiorno, Head of Production at Zero Tolerance Entertainment. “We strive to keep things fresh and give the people what they want, and the AVN noms are a good barometer to let us know we’re on track.”
The acerbic wit of Measure X did not go unnoticed with nominations for Best Comedy and Best Overall Marketing Campaign, Individual Project. The film was the brainchild of director Mike Quasar who aimed his humor directly at the Measure B ‘condom law’ that was voted into existence during the last election cycle. 100% of the proceeds from this film go to fight the legislation, which the industry has largely denounced as unconstitutional and ironically unsafe.
“We’re thrilled that this film got a lot of attention because the cause is so important to the industry,” says Marcus West, Marketing Director at Zero Tolerance Entertainment. “The mini-documentary on Inside Adult [www.insideadult.com] is incredible – check it out if you haven’t seen it. And of course getting noticed by AVN really keeps the energy going for this gem of a film.”
Dr. Ava Cadell also stands out among nominees with recognition of her two instructional DVDs released this year, Dr. Ava’s Guide to BDSM and Dr. Ava’s How to Please a Woman. Each DVD features two couples with live demonstrations of romantic and sexual techniques meant to improve people’s love lives.
“Teaching people about sexuality is my life’s work, so I’m thrilled to partner with Zero Tolerance on these how-to DVDs where my advice truly comes to life,” says Dr. Cadell. “People are so curious about BDSM, but may not know where to start, so this instructional guides them through one step at a time. And of course pleasing a woman is something every man should brush up on! I’m grateful to AVN for recognizing my work.”
The Official Next Friday Parody is nominated for Best Parody – Comedy with its ongoing homage to the original series, this time with Craig moving to the Valley to save his uncle’s house!
The infamous gangbang series No Limits was honored with nominations for Best Continuing Series, as well as Best Group Sex Scene with Skin Diamond, Billy Glide, John Strong, Mark Wood, Tommy Pistol & Will Powers. 3 On Their Knees also got two nods, one for Best Oral Release, and the other for Best Oral Sex Scene with Maddy O’Reilly, Belle Noire & Rilynn Rae.
Housewives Orgy took a nom for Best MILF series, Interracial Coeds for Best Interracial Release and Maid to Order for Best Ethnic Release. A Best Orgy / Gangbang Release went to Gym Rats Orgy, while Mick Blue garnered two noms for the same award with his Mick Blue’s Eye Candy, Best POV Sex Scene (Anikka Albrite, Mick Blue and Ash Hollywood, Mick Blue. The high concept Tweeters got recognized for Best Vignette Release, while Come on Mom grabbed some love for the always entertaining Clever Title of the Year category.
