BIG NIGHT FOR AXEL BRAUN AT 2011 AVN AWARDS – Director/Producer Axel Braun took home 14 AVN Awards last week, seven for his blockbuster hit "Batman XXX: A Porn Parody" distributed exclusively by Vivid Entertainment. The sexy spoof of the 60's TV show was honored for Best Parody, Best Renting and Selling Title of the Year, Best Screenplay, Best DVD Menus, Best Overall Marketing Campaign, Best Supporting Actor (Evan Stone, for his terrific turn as The Riddler), and Best Supporting Actress (Lexi Belle for her sexy portrayal of Batgirl). Braun, who was inducted in the AVN Hall of Fame during the ceremony, won additional awards for his parodies of Avatar and Glee. He also took home trophies for Director of the Year-Body of Work, while his namesake studio Axel Braun Productions was named Best New Production Company. Said Axel after the ceremony: "It was surreal, and quite overwhelming. It's a great honor to join my dad in the AVN Hall of Fame," referring to his father, legendary porn-pioneer Lasse Braun. Vivid founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch said: “Axel created something absolutely unique with this movie. He is a perfectionist and he's very passionate about his work, and we are all very happy for his well-deserved success."
Far from resting from his laurels, Braun, whose new hit Elvis XXX: A Porn Parody sold out overnight, is already back at work putting the finishing touches on his ambitious new spoof Superman XXX: A Porn Parody, which will be released by Vivid on January 23, under the Vivid SuperXXXHeroes imprint.

VIVID STILL TRYING TO HELP OCTOMOM – Website TMZ.com reported that Vivid is still trying to help Nadya “Octomom” Suleman avoid foreclosure on her California home. Under the headline Octomom Gets Mortgage Help from Porn King , the website reported on Wednesday, “Octomom can finally rest easy about making her February mortgage payment -- TMZ has learned porn king Steve Hirsch is covering it out of his own pocket ... whether she wants it or not. Hirsch -- the president of Vivid Entertainment -- says he will hand over a check to the man who holds the note on Octo's home while he, "continues to study ways to help her avoid foreclosure." TMZ.com and others have been reporting that Steven has met with Amer Haddadin, who holds the mortgage on Nadya’s house, about the possibility of buying out the $450,000 mortgage note he holds on the home.” Steven told TMZ.com that by making the February mortgage payment, he hopes to "relieve pressure on her and also give us a chance to conduct our due diligence" on whether to buy the mortgage on her behalf. Up to now, Octomom has refused all offers to work with Vivid as an actress or in a non-acting role
