Seth Gamble Racks Up 27 Nominations From 2023 XBIZ Awards

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Director/writer/performer Seth Gamble earned 27 nominations from the 2023 XBIZ Awards, including "Male Performer of the Year."

His debut feature as a filmmaker, Wicked Pictures' "Deranged," picked up six nominations, including "Feature Movie of the Year," personal nominations for "Feature Director of the Year" and "Best Screenplay," and nods for "Best Art Direction," "Best Editing" for Claudia Ross, and "Best Feature Movie Sex Scene" for Lily Larimar, Jane Wilde, and Mick Blue.

"I'm very, very thankful to see my narrative directorial debut honored with six XBIZ nominations," Gamble said. "I’m very grateful to see the hard work we all put into it recognized. I want to thank my wonderful wife Kenzie Taylor for her inspiring work ethic and her tireless pursuit of beauty and excellence. Her dedication and drive and passion brought Charlie to life and elevated the entire production. Thank you, XBIZ, for recognizing the hard work we put all into this, and thank you, Axel Braun, for your friendship and for believing in me and my vision."

Gamble also scored a "Featurette of the Year" nomination for co-directing "Serial Breeder" with Bree Mills for Adult Time.

In the acting categories, he picked up one "Best Lead Acting" nom for "Spideypool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody" (Wicked Pictures), and three "Best Supporting Acting" nods for "Drift" (Deeper), "Going Up" (Lust Cinema), and "Stars" (Adult Time), respectively. 

Six features in which he performed, including all four that garnered him acting noms, as well as "Dark Is The Night" (Wicked Noir) and "Hysteria" (Wicked Pictures), received nominations for "Feature Movie of the Year."

Gamble received nominations for 15 scenes, including five for "Best Feature Movie Sex Scene," three for "Best Featurette Sex Scene," three for "Best Career-First Performance Sex Scene," three for "Best All-Sex Sex Scene," and one for "Best Gonzo Sex Scene."

"As I enter my sixteenth year in this industry, I absolutely can’t thank XBIZ enough for this incredible acknowledgement of my work as a performer and actor, as well as a writer and director," he said. "I’m particularly grateful to receive the 'Male Performer of the Year' nomination, as this year really gave me unprecedented opportunities to show how versatile and adaptable I am as an actor and performer, which the sex scene nominations, as well as the leading and supporting 'Best Actor' nominations, speak to."

"In addition to everyone at XBIZ, I’d like to thank the great crews, the incredible talent, and the great companies who’ve made this such a remarkable year," he continued.

The 2023 XBIZ Awards will crown the best-of-the-best in adult Sunday, Jan. 15 at the historic Hollywood Palladium; in keeping with tradition, select award categories under Web & Technology, Pleasure Products and Retail will be presented as part of the annual XBIZ Honors ceremonies.
