(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- The Adult Entertainment Expo is right around the corner, with the urgency of the season reaching its peak last week with the announcement of the AVN Award Nominees. Pure Play Media is pleased to announce that the company has been honored with a total of 61 nominations, with key nods in categories such as Best Director, Best Video Feature, and an induction into the Hall of Fame!

Leading the pack is Michael Ninn's visionary company Ninn Worx, which was given 25 nominations, nine of which going to Ninn's sumptuous feature in the Garden of Shadows. Some of the nominations were in categories such as Best Video Feature, Best Director, Best Videography, Best Music and Best Editing.

"My cast and crew are really why my features get nominated. I have incredible videographers, incredible editors, and all my support is what makes these features get noticed," says Ninn. "Garden was just a magical picture and everything came together with it. We never set out to make something to win an AVN award, we just make pictures that people will like and buy, so the nomination comes as a pleasant surprise. It does my heart good that other people recognize how talented my crew is."

Following Ninn Worx's nominations is Private with 18 nods, including 10 for their high-budget feature Millionaire, which was recognized in such categories as Best Foreign Feature, Best Director - Foreign release and Best Screenplay. Meanwhile, Seymore Butts grabbed a nomination for Best Gonzo Series as well as an induction into the Hall of Fame, and his hit Showtime reality series, Family Business, was nominated for Best Alternative release for the first season box set. Seymore's cousin, Cousin Stevie, also gained a couple of nods for his brand new series Cousin Stevie's Pussy Party: one for Best All-Girl Feature (for the second volume), and another for Best All-Girl Series.

"The only thing that could get me more excited would be shooting eight naked women having sex. next to that, this is the most exciting thing I can think of," Stevie says. "You know, I am so fuckin' proud and happy. I didn't expect this at all - I didn't think it'd make final nominations. I feel that this shows people are at least accepting the concept I came up with for Pussy Party."

Suze Randall Productions kicked off the year right , starting their new company by staggering new releases with old classics Suze shot in the late 70s and early 80s. So it's no coincidence that both new and old titles garnered nominations, with Dark Side recognized in the Best All-sex Video category and Sky Foxes for Best Classic release. Dark Side also got Suze and her daughter Holly noticed for Best Director - Non Feature.

I think this is great because it's our first year back in video," Holly says. "We got off to a rocky start and to be nominated already for four awards. I'm pleasantly surprised. I honestly don't expect to win because we're going up against such heavy hitters as Laurent Sky, Jules Jordan and Toni English who have been directing in this industry for so many years. Not to say that we won't win in the future, but being that this is the first year I'm just happy to be nominated."

Rounding out Pure Play's nominations is Score Group with a few nods, including Best Amateur release for Naughty Neighbors Amateur Couples, Simon Wolf Productions flexing its creative muscle and getting noticed for it with a nom for Best Special Effects in Blue Angels: The Second Coming (as well as recognition for Best Ethnic Themed release - Asian for a Taste of the Orient), and Erotic Media's nomination for Decadent Love in the Best Foreign Feature category.

Pure Play Media CEO Richard Arnold is pleased with the company's nominations.

"It's a testament to an absolutely phenomenal line up of top-ranked product and talent that we have put together," Arnold says. "It's absolutely a testament to what we're setting out to do, which is be at the top of the game to all genres, and in doing that we've put together what I feel is the best of the business and we'll continue to do that. We have such a great group of people working for us that I would've been disappointed if it have been anything less. It really is speaks very loudly of the people we have working for us."

The winners will be announced at the 2005 AVN Awards on January 8th, 2005.
