On November 20, AVN Media Network held a mini-ceremony during which AVN Awards co-hosts Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol announced a key selection of 2015 AVN Awards nominees, including performers of the year and various sex scene categories. Also there to lend a hand was director Jacky St. James, who announced more of the nominees, and Female Performer of the Year nominee Maddy O'Reilly, who revealed some of the contenders in the 2015 "O" Awards, given to outstanding pleasure product manufacturers. The crowd was also introduced to Carmen Caliente and Jillian Janson, who will serve as trophy girls at the AVN Awards Show. A full house of industry stars, directors, company owners and agents was on hand to cheer for the contenders, many of whom were at the event, which was held at the posh Lure nightclub in Hollywood.
