The adult star’s “Behind The Porn Scenes” series at his YouTube channel has garnered over 630,000 views this year
Adult film legend Steve Holmes, XBIZ’s reigning Foreign Male Performer of the Year, has been nominated for five new awards by the adult industry media giant.
Nominations for the 2019 XBIZ Awards were announced Nov. 14 at a celebration in Los Angeles, and Holmes received nods in some of the most competitive sexual and acting performance categories, as well as Foreign Male Performer of the Year.
“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. “I received a bunch of awards in Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona and Las Vegas, but it is still exiting 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 five nominations for the 2019 XBIZ Awards. Among his honored performances are turns in Joanna Angel’s acclaimed comedy Dirty Grandpa (BurningAngel), and Jacky St. James’ hit taboo release My Dad, Your Dad (Sweet Sinner).
Dirty Grandpa is also nominated for Comedy Release of the Year, and director/co-star Angel is nominated for Best Actress — Comedy Release. My Dad, Your Dad, is nominated for Taboo Release of the Year.
“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.”
“He had so much fun with this role; once I thought of the concept the movie basically wrote itself.”
For his work in Dirty Grandpa, Holmes is nominated for Best Actor — Comedy Release, as well as Best Sex Scene — Comedy Release for his kinky romp with Marley Brinx.
XBIZ’s review of the warped and wicked comedy proclaims “Inked babes, smokin’ fine sex and hilarious dialogue make the latest brilliance from writer and director Joanna Angel a must-see.”
Holmes also earned an XBIZ Awards nomination for Best Sex Scene — Taboo Release for his scene with Alexis Fawx in My Dad, Your Dad.
Holmes recalled, “In My Dad, Your Dad I had the pleasure to shoot with Carmen Caliente and Alexis Fawx. Jacky St. James is famous for her sexy twisted stories which she puts perfectly in motion. Having sex with these two hot blondes playing mother and daughter was already hot and twisted, but she also made me play a cook. I very much hope for the girls that they enjoyed the fucking more than my food!”
The film’s award-winning director, Jacky St. James said, “Steve understands how to keep scenes hot and dynamic from start to finish. He is one of the few performers in the biz that understands the importance of the moment and building the tension. His scene with Alexis was a memorable one for me and I am thrilled that they got the recognition they both deserved!”
