On September 6th, 2018, the biggest names in the adult industry gathered at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles for the inaugural Pornhub Awards. It was, without a doubt, the adult industry’s biggest, most glamorous event yet thanks to Kanye West, who served as the award show’s Creative Director.

With the world tuning in to the see their favorite porn stars get honored for their amazing work, Kanye West took the opportunity to stage a fashion show featuring adult superstars Nicolette Shea, Bridgette B, Gina Valentina, Asa Akira, Abella Danger, Gina Valentina, Pornhub’s Aria, and more.

The not-so-red carpet

Brazzers was well-represented at the awards with their featured talent arriving in style and escorted by their fashionably futuristic male counterparts. Talent attending the awards for Brazzers included: Kimmy Granger, Madison Ivy, Bonnie Rotten, Lela Star, Karmen Karma, Nicolette Shea, Xander Corvus and Jordi el Nino Polla.

The names. Oh the names.

Of course, no adult industry event is complete without the likes of industry favorites and Pornhub Awards presenters: Riley Reid, Kira Noir, Abigail Mac, Angela White and many more.

The event got even hotter with special guests featuring Creative Director himself, Kanye West, performer Teyana Taylor, rapper-turned-director Young M.A., performer Blackbear, and performer Dana Dentata.

Appearing in the audience were guests the likes of Trippie Redd, Lil Dicky, Tana Mongeau, YouTube-couple Adam22 and Lena The Plug, and many more, the event was a huge night for the adult industry.

In addition to Kanye’s inspirational involvement with the award show, the Pornhub Awards were a significant event because it was the first-ever award show to be broadcast live in virtual reality.
