James Deen Wins ‘Best Male Performer of the Year,’ and Isn’t Retiring from Porn Any Time Soon

Our porn crush James Deen won top honors tonight at the 30th annual AVN Awards at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, landing the award for Best Male Performer of the Year. He gave his acceptance speech directly to the porn actresses presenting the award, with his back to the audience, and thanked all his female co-stars, as well as the many women he’ll get to work with in the future.

Deen may be a crossover success, starring in the upcoming Bret Easton Ellis film The Canyons with Lindsay Lohan, but porn is clearly his first love. When Sundance rejected The Canyons, Deen said he wasn’t bothered by the snub. “It coincides with AVN. Priorities man!!!!!” Works for us.
