Banderas' nomination is his latest honor the adult industry, which also includes a lead role in director Michael Ninn's upcoming big budget feature, "The Four." Banderas launched his production company Hot Zone late last year and is actively directing the "Culos Gigantes" and "Ebony XXX" lines for Mercenary Pictures.
"It's been a very busy year for me, and I appreciate the nomination for Male Performer of the Year," Banderas said. "It's a very selective field, and knowing that people are taking notice of your work is always something that makes you work harder."
