Seth Gamble Reflects on 2nd XBIZ Male Performer of the Year Win

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Seth Gamble took home his second XBIZ Male Performer of the Year Award last week in Hollywood.

The director/producer/writer/performer also shared the awards for Best All-Sex Sex Scene with Vanna Bardot for "Money," a scene he wrote and directed; and for Best Feature Movie Sex Scene with Maitland Ward and Mick Blue for their scene in Kayden Kross' "Deeper."

"I want to thank every director I’ve ever gotten to work with in my career," Gamble said during his acceptance speech. "Thank you so much — you make me a better performer. It means the world. Thank you for helping guide me throughout my career."

He also highlighted his female co-stars, saying, "You women put your bodies out there, every single day. Thank you for trusting me to work with you and give you the best scene possible."

Gamble was nominated for a total of 27 XBIZ Awards at last week's ceremony. In addition to the three categories he won, he was nominated an additional four times for Best Feature Movie Sex Scene and two more times for Best All-Sex Sex Scene. 

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

As a performer, 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. 

"I’m so proud of what we’ve all accomplished with these movies. The experiences were amazing," he said of his feature work. "Reprising my role as Deadpool was a blast, and getting a Best Lead Acting nomination for it was icing on the cake. This was my fourth time getting the opportunity to dig into being the Merc with a Mouth and I have to thank Axel Braun for once again inspiring everybody with his signature attention to detail and by bringing together such an amazing cast and crew of people."

He was also nominated for seven more scenes in which he performed — three for Best Featurette Sex Scene, three for Best Career-First Performance Sex Scene, and one for Best Gonzo Sex Scene.

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.

"As I enter my seventeenth year in this industry, I absolutely can’t thank XBIZ enough for this incredible acknowledgement of my work as a performer and actor," Gamble said in a statement after the awards show. "I’m particularly grateful to receive the Male Performer of the Year award a second time, as this year really gave me unprecedented opportunities to show how versatile, reliable, and adaptable I am as an actor and performer."
