MARINA DEL REY, Calif. James Deen has been nominated for two awards by the X-Rated Critics Organization.

The nominations are for Male Performer of the Year and Mainstream Adult Media Favorite.

Deen has received several adult industry awards.

“I kept busy last year, and it's rewarding to see my effort recognized,” Deen said. “It's particularly rewarding to be nominated by the X-Rated Critics, because those dudes watch a lot of porno. When you can impress them, you must be doing something right.”

The XRCO is made up of professional writers and reviewers in the adult industry. The organization holds an informal invitation-only ceremony annually to honor the critics' choices of the best in the adult industry in the previous year.

Deen was previously named XRCO’s Male Performer of the Year in 2009.

Deen’s Mainstream Adult Media Favorite nomination can be attributed to his starring role in the upcoming feature film from Bret Easton Ellis and Paul Schrader “The Canyons” where he acts opposite Lindsay Lohan.

Deen also received mainstream attention in 2012 with features in outlets including GQ, Hollywood Reporter, US Magazine, New York Times, CNN.com and CNBC.com.

Deen’s newest mainstream project is as producer on "Cowboys & Engines," a short steampunk western film.

The project is currently in production and raising funds through KickStarter.com.

The XRCO Awards will take place in Hollywood.
