With a stylish new marketing campaign that adorned both its sleek new signing booth and much of the Palms Casino And Resort, Wicked Pictures maintained a formidable presence at the 2011 Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. Whether they were gracing the awards show stage, wheeling and dealing in the company’s business suite, or grabbing attention in the mainstream media, Wicked Pictures’ superstar contract performers, award-winning directors, and key executives were playing to win. Wicked’s week in Sin City concluded with the 28th Annual AVN Awards Show, where Brad Armstrong’s turbocharged motorcycle adventure SPEED crossed the finish line with three high-profile awards – “Best Video Feature,” “Best Director – Feature,” and “Best DVD Extras.”
For the Wicked crew, the pavement-pounding excitement began Wednesday evening, as Kaylani Lei hosted a VIP soiree at Eva Longoria’s EVE while Lupe Fuentes debuted her Sexy Little Angel clothing line at Lavo in the Palazzo. Thursday evening saw jessica drake hosting the official AVN Adult Entertainment Expo Kick Off Party, complete with special appearances by her Wicked sisters, at Tao in the Venetian, while Friday found Lupe throwing another high-profile soiree at Lavo.
When they weren’t tripping the light fantastic, jessica, Kaylani, Lupe, Stormy Daniels, Kirsten Price, and Alektra Blue were causing a commotion at Wicked’s sleek new booth, where Spike TV, Wire Image, G4 TV, The Associated Press, HBO Latin America, and many more chronicled the excitement as the Wicked Girls greeted their fans and presented the wildly successful Wicked RealDolls™ line in an impressive display which included the debuts of the Kaylani Lei and Lupe Fuentes Wicked RealDolls™.
With the company and the lines it distributes nominated for dozens of 2011 AVN awards, it should come as no surprise that the Wicked AEE excitement peaked Saturday, January 8th, at the 28th Annual AVN Awards Show in the Palms’ Pearl Theater. In addition to featuring Kirsten as the official Red Carpet Host, the show also saw jessica and Lupe taking center stage as presenters.
When they weren’t walking the red carpet, the Wicked team was busy winning awards. Not only did Brad Armstrong’s, SPEED receive “Best Video Feature,” “Best Director – Feature,” and “Best DVD Extras,” but Wicked’s resident king of comedy, Jonathan Morgan (Space Nuts, Camp Cuddly Pines Powertool Massacre), received AVN’s “Best Sex Comedy” award for Couples Camp - his fifth such honor.
In other highlights, Alektra Blue won “Best Body” in AVN’s newly-minted Fan Awards, and, in a fitting acknowledgment of Wicked’s enduring commitment to quality, company owner Steve Orentein was inducted into the AVN Hall Of Fame (Founders Branch). After the awards gala thundered to a successful conclusion, the industry’s top players quickly headed to Wicked’s spectacular afterparty at Moon inside the Palms.
From the red carpet to the stage, from the convention floor to the VIP sections of Las Vegas’ most exclusive nightspots, the ladies and gentlemen of Wicked Pictures reached the checkered flags of the 2011 Adult Entertainment Expo in style, crossing the finish line with grace and affirming their unswerving commitment to their fans, customers, and business partners from around the world.
