CHARLOTTE, N.C. — AEBN has announced the winners of its 7th annual VOD Awards.

Since 2006, AEBN has calculated the most popular films and the stars of the year based on viewing habits of the millions who visit the company's network of VOD theaters and celebrated those winners with the VOD Awards.

Nominations are based on minute sales in the theaters in one calendar year and decided upon with a precise, in-house accounting system.

"We know that the VOD Awards are special to us and many of its winners because it is really the fans' voices being heard," said AEBN's Jerry Anders, vice president of sales and marketing.

"The films and stars that we honor with the VOD Awards are the ones that the fans love to watch again and again. A VOD Award shows the strong fan base that each of the winners has."

Nominees were announced in December, and the winners will receive their awards via mail. The awards cover a wide range of genres, and special honors are also given for Lifetime Achievement and Studio of the Year.

Award-winning director Paul Thomas has been highlighted for the Lifetime Achievement honors, while Mile High Media has been named Studio of the Year.

"The AEBN VOD Awards mean so much to me because they represent the true voice of the fans," said director Nica Noelle, whose movie with Studio of the Year Mile High Media took the honor of Best Feature.

"It's based purely on what fans spent their time and money to see."
