(CANOGA PARK, CA) -- Acclaimed all-sex studio Mercenary Pictures nabbed 14 AVN Award nominations, the most ever for the studio, for its interracial, ethnic, MILF and POV titles. Lexington Steele, owner of the company, will also be inducted to the Hall of Fame.

Jimmy Scaffnetti also made the short list for Best Director Ethnic Video.

''The nominations we've garnered this year are spread across the all-sex spectrum,'' Steele said. ''We've made a huge impression in the ethnic categories, a strength that we've always played to, and we've been recognized for our amateur and POV titles. I appreciate AVN recognizing the work Mercenary Pictures and its directors Tina Tyler, Jimmy Scaffnetti and myself have done in the last year.''

The three-time AVN Male Performer of the Year is also up for a Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year nomination for his prominent appearances in mainstream productions and will be inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame.

''Being inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame is a life achievement,'' he said. ''to be included in the pantheon of the greatest video performers is validating, yet humbling at the same time. Furthermore, to be inducted alongside my mentor, Mr. Marcus, makes this even more special to me.

''Being nominated for the Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year by AVN is appreciated and, I feel, important. I'm aware of the responsibility to represent our industry in the most positive manner I can. It is an honor for me to continue to represent our industry in the mainstream.''
