CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Mainstream and adult star Nikki Phoenix has received a number of industry nominations, including an XBIZ Awards nom for Crossover Star of the Year.
This year saw Phoenix nominated for an XBIZ Awards Crossover Star of the Year award as her mainstream career has exploded with a new single airing on radio stations in the U.S., Canada and Europe and a music distribution deal with EDM powerhouse Beatport.
Between performances at nightclubs and festivals throughout the U.S. and mainstream modeling appearances, Phoenix also released new scenes for her official website, NikkiPhoenixxx.com, as well as movies through her distribution deal with Juicy.
Phoenix also appeared in 2015 and 2016 Vang Comp Systems calendars for the world leader in shotgun technology and had her music appear in the first skill-based casino game ever developed by Nanotech Gaming.
This month also saw Little Dragon Pictures achieve yet another milestone, with a Personal Lubricant Sponsorship by Wet from Trigg Laboratories.
For the Crossover Star of the Year nod, it’s the seventh such nomination in her career for the category with XBIZ and other adult industry shows.
“It definitely lets the world know that a performer is no longer stigmatized by this wonderful industry, and can pursue Mainstream and Adult careers and success at the same time,” Phoenix said.
“[I] would both like to thank everyone at XBIZ, and our distributors Juicy and Beatport, as well as Vang Comp Systems and our mainstream partners, all of the nightclubs and festivals who have supported us, as well as all our fans and supporters for an amazing year, and I promise this is just the start of our incredible journey together."
Trigg Laboratories, which manufactures premium sexual wellness and consumer healthcare products and is the parent company of Wet International, Inc., one of the world’s best-selling lines of personal lubricants and intimacy products, wished Phoenix luck with her XBIZ Awards nomination.
"We love that Crossover Star of the Year nominee, Nikki Phoenix, loves Wet and we are so excited to be a part of Little Dragon Pictures’ productions this year," said Jennifer Martsolf, Trigg Laboratories' vice president of marketing. "You can see by the nominations, they release quality content and we are honored that they’ve chosen Wet on set.”
