MARINA DEL REY, Calif.—Chanel Preston has been nominated for “Best New Starlet” by the X-Rated Critics Organization. The achievement marks a stunningly successful year for the gorgeous newcomer during which she charted a perfect record of eight nominations out of eight awards shows.
“Last year,” said XRCO co-chairman Bob "Dirty Bob" Krotts, “I took a chance on a total unknown—Chanel Preston—and gave her one of the coveted spots at the 2010 XRCO Awards Show as our Trophy Girl, which is reserved for new girls in the business whom we felt were serious about their adult careers, would hang around long enough to get a strong fan base, and do the right things. Yes, I took a chance and, were this Vegas, Chanel would be an unbeatable royal flush with her New Starlet nomination and the quality of her work over the last year.”
The nomination marks a sweeping year of awards already for Preston, with four coveted prizes on her mantel: XBIZ’s Best New Starlet, NightMoves magazine’s Editor’s Choice award for Best New Starlet, Best New Starlet from XCritic.com and the Starlet of the Year award from CAVR.com. She also received attention for the AVN-winning “Most Outrageous Sex Scene” in Hustler’s This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D. Additionally, she was nominated for individual AVN and FAME awards and is currently nominated for the Galaxy Award. Gram Ponante bestowed his own Ropey Volley award on Chanel, indicative of her stunning first year in the business.
“In April of 2010 I was honored with the role of XRCO Trophy Girl,” said Preston. “This event marked the first noticeable, on-stage opportunity of my career. The organization gave me a platform to leave an impression on studio owners, directors, media and other talent. The visibility paved the road for Trophy Girl positions at both the FAME Awards and the 2011 AVN Award Show. I cannot track which bookings have transpired from these combined shows, but I know XRCO's faith in me has been integral to my success, plus the multitude of Best New Starlet nominations and accolades I’ve received this year. With this in mind, I would like to humbly thank the X-Rated Critics Organization for their acknowledgement in every way.”
Art Koch, XRCO member and NightMoves magazine's national features and DVD editor, said, “Chanel Preston is sexy, talented and one of the brightest new stars in adult films. NightMoves magazine was very honored to present her with the Editor’s Choice Best New Starlet award, her very first in the industry, at our show in October 2010 in Tampa, Fl. Deserving of her XRCO nomination, Chanel has turned in some fantastic performances. We look for nothing but super stardom for this sexy beauty in the future.”
Chanel is leading the new generation of adult performers—women who maintain ownership of their name, website and photo content, while using top studios to propel their visibility and widen their fan base. She’s become a special favorite of the gamer community, too, prominently featured in G4 TV’s AEE 2011 special, as well as online at IGN.com, ConsoleCreatures.com, 411mania.com, RegretfulMorning.com, FixeMagazine.com, CreativeLoafing.com, and was recently selected as RapIndustry.com’s model of the month.
Chanel recently filmed leading roles in Exquisite Films’ Reservoir Dogs XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody and The Justice League XXX: An Extreme Comixxx Parody. Her newest released scenes are available in Girlfriends Films’ Women Seeking Women: Volume 69, Evil Angel’s Ass Fucked Sluts and Jules Jordan Video’s Oil Overload #4.
