The adult film legend to compete against himself with eight nominations for his scene work in two categories!
Steve Holmes, AVN’s Male Foreign Performer of the Year for 2005 and 2006 and 2017 Hall of Fame inductee, has been nominated for TWELVE trophies at the 2019 AVN Awards.
One of the most beloved and respected adult performers working today, Holmes is a veteran of well over 2500 scenes who began his career in Europe in 1996. He continues to turn out performances that win the hearts of fans and the praise of critics the world over.
Nominations for the 2019 AVN Awards were announced Nov. 15 at a gala party in Hollywood, and Holmes received nods in some of the most competitive sexual and acting performance categories, including Best Actor — Feature, as well as Male Performer of the Year.
“This is my first nomination as Performer of the Year, rather than Foreign Performer of the Year,” noted Holmes, who has been living and working in Los Angeles and Budapest since 2002.
“I’m 23 years in the business and have been nominated countless times on various shows for the best performer award,” Holmes is quoted as saying, “but it is still exciting to get nominated. I am honored to be even considered as best male performer when I see all the young studs on set. Some of them were not even born when I shot my first porn!”
Holmes received 12 nominations for the 2019 AVN Awards. Among his honored performances are turns in Joanna Angel’s acclaimed comedy Dirty Grandpa (BurningAngel); and Angela by Darkko (AGW/Darkko/Evil Angel).
For his work as the titular character in Dirty Grandpa, Holmes is nominated for Best Actor — Feature. The movie is also nominated for Best Comedy, and director/co-star Angel is nominated for Director of the Year, among other honors.
“I’m a big fan of Joanna Angel’s funny stories and scripts. We had so much fun on set and the crew did a great job with shooting and editing this movie. I really hope for Joanna that this title win a lot of awards. She deserves it.”
For Ms. Angel, the feeling is mutual: “It’s no doubt that Steve is a dirty old man, but there’s something so incredibly fun and charming about his perversions,” Angel commented. “This movie celebrated all the different wonderful aspects of Steve you just don’t quite see when he’s a penis in a double anal scene.”
And speaking of being a penis in a double penetration scene . . . AVN also bestowed Holmes with an astonishing FIVE nominations in the category of Best Double Penetration Sex Scene. Holmes anchors ONE THIRD of the 15 nominated scenes!
The celebrated cocksman also scored THREE nominations in the Best Group Sex Scene category, including roles in Joanna Angel Gangbang: As Above So Below, (BurningAngel), and Angela by Darkko (AGW/Darkko/Evil Angel) opposite AVN Female Performer of the Year Angela White.
