Earlier this year adult movie director Will Ryder was prophetic when he said, “The simple fact for me is it truly sucks to go to Las Vegas and know you’re not in contention for AVN Awards. I’m not ever letting that happen again.” Well he didn’t as Bad Babes Inc. tops this year’s list with the most AVN Award Nominations among original movies with 12, including Best Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Comedy and Best Director.
The Adam & Eve Pictures feature film stars Katie Morgan as a blind-sided stay-at-home wife who receives her ex-husband’s porn company in the divorce settlement.
Katie Morgan offered, “I’m so thankful for being cast in this role because it was such a great part for me and I really related to my character. The script was fantastic and I loved it the instant I read it and I’m so happy to be nominated by AVN,” Morgan offered.
“It’s the best adult movie of the year,” remarked the movie’s writer and director Will Ryder. “I can say that with a straight face because I’m biased as hell and it’s not good to mess with cold hard facts. Truth is, we had a stellar cast led by Katie and she absolutely killed it. The entire cast and crew exceeded my lofty expectations and the list of award nominations is remarkable. I’m so proud of my team and thankful for AVN and Adam & Eve Pictures.”
See for yourself as there is an official movie trailer for Bad Babes Inc. providing a quick insight into what many are saying is the movie-of-the-year leading contender. The trailer is safe for work; if you have a lenient boss.

When asked what it meant to him to be the top nominated original movie of the year, Ryder thought for a moment before answering. “I did this movie in all honesty because I wanted to kick some ass. I got tired of my contemporaries Brad Armstrong, Greg Lansky, Jackie St. James and Axel Braun having all the fun in Las Vegas so I got busy and wrote the best script of my career, cast actors I loved, brought in my new DP Rene’ Francois and created Bad Babes Inc. to reclaim my position as one of the best story-tellers in this business.”
Earlier this fall, Bad Babes Inc. won the NightMoves First Choice Award.
Ryder wanted to go on the record to point out that his friend Axel Braun received 13 AVN Award Nominations for Justice League XXX which is the most for any movie, but since it was a parody and not an original movie, “I don’t give a shit. Listen, I have a lot of respect for the good directors in this business like Axel, Brad, Jacky, Greg, and some of the others so it’s a great feeling to be back in the conversation.”
