Maitland Ward, the fiery redhead who blazed a path into the adult industry with a slew of white-hot performances this year, has been honored with four XBIZ Awards nominations for 2020.
The star was nominated for Best Actress – Feature Movie and Best Sex Scene – Feature Movie for her breakout performance in Kayden Kross’ epic feature for Deeper, Drive. Ward also received nominations for Best New Starlet and Crossover Star of the Year.
“Thank you to XBIZ for recognizing my work this year, particularly my work in Drive,” said Ward of the film, which received 10 nominations as well. “Thank you to Kayden for bringing me into the amazing world of Drive, and to my fellow nominated co-stars Ivy Lebelle and Manuel Ferrara for making the experience that much more enjoyable!”
Ward made her official hardcore debut earlier this year starring in memorable scenes for top studios such as Jules Jordan Video, Mile High, Brazzers and Vixen Media Group, the latter of which just signed Ward to an exclusive performing contract.
“2019 has been an incredible blur, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way,” said the veteran mainstream actress and model who appeared in several popular TV shows and films such as Bold and the Beautiful, White Chicks and Boy Meets World.
“I’m grateful to feel welcomed and appreciated as I start this new chapter in my life… I’ve been surrounded by so much love and support from everyone in the industry, my co-workers and fans. I can’t tell you how much it means to me.”
