This year’s NightMoves Awards were handed out during a glitzy ceremony taking place at the Mojito’s Tampa Nightclub.
NightMoves Magazine, the organizer behind the annual NightMoves Awards, was founded in 1988, while the first NightMoves Awards took place five years later in 1993. The 2022 edition became the 30th anniversary of the award show, making it one of the oldest and long-running awards of the business.
To be considered eligible, a movie must have been released between June 1, 2021, and June 1, 2022. Individual Awards are also based on this same time frame except for those in the “New Starlet” category, whose performances between June 1, 2020, and June 1, 2022 qualify.
Paul Allen, the owner of NightMoves, commented on this specific occasion, »After 30 years you would think things get a little boring … but that is far, far from the truth. This year’s weekend was amazing! We had a great group of stars and all of our venues were packed.«
He added, »The $5,000, first-ever Feature Showgirl “Duo Act” competition was a showcase of the finest adult feature dancers in the world! The return of FanFest on Saturday afternoon was a blast and this might have been our best Awards Show Weekend ever!«
The weekend long event started October 6. The following night, the stars traveled to 4-Play Gentlemen’s Club in St. Petersburg and The Red Room in New Port Richey. Saturday afternoon featured FanFest, where stars signed autographs, sold merchandise and met fans up close and personal. Following the Awards Show Sunday at Mojito’s, the official After Party commenced at Thee Doll House.
