LOS ANGELES — Adult film star James Bartholet has received a 2014 XBIZ Award for Best Non-Sex Performance. Bartholet has received the award for his hilarious performance as The Cowardly Lion in "Not The Wizard Of OZ XXX" for X-Play/Pulse.

"Thank you XBIZ for my award. I'm very lucky and very fortunate to have worked on this film project. I also wanted to thank Will Ryder, Scott David, and our cast and crew. Like they say, it takes a village. This was fun to make — long hours, but fun to make," said Bartholet.

Bartholet was nominated twice in this same category this year. The other nomination was for his performance in "Not Love Boat XXX."
