Nikki Benz Nominated for 2016 XBIZ Award

LOS ANGELES — Nikki Benz has received a 2016 XBIZ Award nomination for Best Scene — Vignette Release.

The adult film actress was nominated for her performance with Keiran Lee in Brazzers’ “Asspirations.” Benz graces the box cover of the release in a parody image of Kim Kardashian’s infamous Paper Magazine image. Kardashian’s image was, in turn, an ode to Jean-Paul Goude’s photograph, “Carolina Beaumont, New York, 1976,” from his 1982 book, “Jungle Fever.”

"Working with Keiran [Lee] was a pleasure, as usual," Benz said. “We put out some hot scenes! And playing Kim K was especially amusing — my fans loved it!”

Benz was born in Ukraine but raised in Toronto, Canada, where she was a figure and calendar model before becoming an exotic dancer. She made her first adult film in 2002, and has stayed in the business ever since. In 2011, she was named Penthouse Pet of the Year.
