The 2014 "ED's" Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Final Ballot
It’s been dubbed as the “Oscars” of the adult nightclub industry, the crowning event of the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO and an evening worthy of celebration. The Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show—known more frequently as the ED’s Awards—will return for its 17th straight year at the 2014 EXPO at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Once again, the House of Blues, located directly inside Mandalay Bay and boasting a national reputation as one of the nation’s best live music venues, will play host to the show.
The Annual ED’s Awards Show, presented by Anheuser-Busch and slated for August 19 from 9-11 pm, will honor the best-of-the-best in adult nightclubs, club staff and feature entertainment. The show will be hosted by top comedian Ralphie May, will feature special guest presenters, the all-female “house” rock band Brazen and command performances by the four nominees for ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year Award, which include Lacey Rain, Roxi D'Lite, Simone Danalustrous and Tali De'Mar.
“Our four Overall Entertainer of the Year nominees represent the top touring ‘showgirl’ feature entertainers in our industry, and we are looking forward to their live performances during the 17th Annual ED’s Awards Show at the House of Blues in Las Vegas,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher, Dave Manack. “And, of course, our club nominees—highlighted by the eight clubs vying for the prestigious Overall Gentlemen's Club of the Year Award—represent the best-of-the-best in clubs of all sizes, both big and small.”
Those eight clubs nominated for Overall Gentlemen's Club of the Year include Atlantis Gentlemen’s Club in Chicago, Delilah’s Gentlemen’s Club in Philadelphia, Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club in Las Vegas, Penthouse Club in San Francisco, Rick’s Cabaret DFW in Fort Worth, Texas, Scarlett’s Cabaret in Miami, The Pony in Huntsville, Alabama and the Vivid Gentlemen's Club in Charlotte (Mooresville), North Carolina.
The Awards Show will also feature current adult film starlets as special presenters, including Lisa Ann, Tori Black, Allie Haze, Belle Knox, The Starr Sisters, Adraina Chechik and Veronica Rodriguez. Reigning ED’s Overall Feature Entertainer of the Year, Christina Aguchi, will also be on hand to present the Overall Feature Entertainer of the Year Award to the 2014 winner.
The voting for the 2014 ED's Awards is OPEN NOW and will be held online only at TheEDawards.com through Monday, July 14th. Club, entertainer and staff nominees were gathered mainly from pre-nomination votes placed at www.theEDawards.com throughout the month of May.
To make sure that the ED's Awards Show remains a slim, trim two-hour presentation, a select few awards have been moved to a special presentation during the Opening Night '80s Dance Party at the luxurious LIGHT Nightclub inside Mandalay Bay on August 18th (the same way the Oscars hold a prestigious awards event prior to the main Oscar presentation). At the Opening Night Party, the following awards will be presented: “Feature” Club of the Year, Club Favorite Entertainer of the Year, Adult Movie Feature Entertainer of the Year, Miss ExoticDancer.com of the Year, DJ/Emcee of the Year and Club Employee of the Year.[Please note: The final nominees for the 2014 Miss ExoticDancer.com Award will appear on a separate online ballot in July.]
Please note: Those who won ED's Entertainer Awards in 2013 in the following categories are not eligible to be nominated for or win the same award the following year: Christina Aguchi, 2013 Entertainer of the Year; Suzie Malone, 2013 Club Favorite Entertainer of the Year; Richelle Ryan, 2013 Adult Movie Entertainer of the Year; Darling Danika, 2013 Newcomer Entertainer of the Year.
