(VAN NUYS, CA) -- Vivid Entertainment Group received 76 nominations for the upcoming AVN Awards, which will be announced during An Adult Odyssey, the annual AVN Awards at the Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas, January 8, 2001. It marks the fourth consecutive year that Vivid has received more AVN Awards nominations than any other producer. Separately, Vivid also received two nominations for the VSDA Home Entertainment Awards, which will be announced in Las Vegas.

Vivid will also be out in full force at the upcoming Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, January 7-9, 2001 with Vivid Girls and other Vivid personnel on hand at Booth # 602.

In what is sure to be stiff competition for the AVN Awards, Vivid Video received nominations in most major categories, including four for Best Film: Artemesia, Façade, Jekyll & Hyde and Secret Party. Best Director nominations went to Paul Thomas for Artemesia and Ralph Parfait for The Cult. Two new Vivid Girls, Cassidey and Dayton, each picked up nominations for Best New Starlet.

"It has been an incredible year for us and we are thrilled with these nominations," said Marci Hirsch, Director of Operations and head of production for Vivid. "We think they reflect our continuing emphasis on presenting the most beautiful actresses and best looking actors in quality features that appeal to today's couples market and meet the expanding interest in well-produced adult entertainment."

Other nominations went to Jekyll & Hyde for Best DVD and Steel Sirens for Best Interactive DVD. Four actresses in Vivid productions were nominated for Best Actress: Taylor Hayes, Raylene, Sydnee Steele and Inari Vachs. Six men were nominated for Best Actor for their Vivid work: Tyce Bune, John Decker, Mike Foster, Randy Spears and Bobby Vitale in the film category, and Tony Tedeschi in the video category.

The VSDA will consider Artemesia and Jekell & Hyde for top Home Entertainment Awards to be announced during the VSDA Home Entertainment Convention in Las Vegas January 6-9, 2001.

Vivid is the first vertically integrated adult entertainment company. Its operations include The Hot Networks, reaching over 27 million pay-per-view homes. It is know for pioneering technological advances in areas such such as interactive DVD. Vivid Girls have performed in music videos with some of the world's biggest recording stars -- Dasha made an appearance as an exotic dancer in Madonna's hit video "Music" while Cassidey starred in the steamy video "Sad Eyes" with Latin Heartthrob Enrique Iglesias.
