Could this be the year that Jim Powers wins the trophy? He’s one of the most prolific trans directors in adult and is up for a whopping 10 awards. Jim is up for the highly coveted nominations for Best Scene Producer.

He's also up for his scene work. Jim has three nods for Best DVD for "She's A Ten," "Trans Am," and "Trans Honey Trap 2" from GenderX Films. His Devil's Film scene, "Don't Tell My Wife I Buttfucked Her Trans Friend," with Gracie Jane and James Blow, is up for Best Boy/Girl Scene. Jim got two noms for Best Girl/Girl Scene, and both are on GenderX's "Lesbians Love Trans" for Scene 2 with Ariel Demure and Cherry Kiss and Scene 3 with Nikki North and Chanel Camryn.

“This is one of my favorite awards shows and I always attend the ceremony. It would be amazing to win Best Scene Producer and/or any of the nominations for my scene work. But working with such great studios and performers is winning in itself,” says Jim Powers.

About JIM POWERS

Jim Powers is one of the most prolific directors of our time who's always been known for being controversial and once told Forbes he wants to be the Warren Buffett of porno. Growing up in the Valley in the 1970s, Jim was influenced by comic books, horror movies, fan magazines, and skateboarding, and in the 1980s, all he wanted to do was be a punk rocker and skateboarder. After graduating from Cal State Northridge, he became a stockbroker, a DVD distributor, and a part-time pornographer.

In 1992, while gambling in Ballys in Vegas, Jim wandered into the AVN Awards and decided he could make a better movie than most people there for $5k—he and his friend put up $2500 each to make "The Hills Have Thighs." Kevin Beachum of Midnight Pictures encouraged him to shoot amateurs on the beach, even though he had never even picked up a camera. While shooting on the beach in Malibu, his set was shut down, and he was hit with felony charges of pandering and conspiracy. He continued to shoot at private houses and swinger parties for Beachum and other companies to cover his legal bills.

In 1993, a chance meeting with Jeff Mike of JM Productions led to history when the two joined forces, regularly pushing the limits of sex while still staying out of prison. Jim helped them roll out their bukkake line and invented American Bukkake—Downtown Larry Melrose from the Howard Stern Show was frequently on his sets. Jim had his own company, Powersville, and directed for legendary adult studios Heatwave, Mayhem, Sin City, Notorious, Immoral Productions, and Smash Pictures. Currently, he directs for Gender X, Devil's Film, BiPhoria, Dogfart, Zero Tolerance, Adult Time, Transfixed, Fantasy Massage, and Addicted to Girls, and averages over 300 scenes per year. In 2023, ASN Lifestyle Magazine profiled him with a 10-page feature.

With 50 performer credits and thousands of scenes as a director, Jim won Director of the Year (Body of Work) and Best Director - Non-Feature from the AVN Awards and was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2005. He's also scored countless AVN Awards nominations for Best Director, Best Director – Feature, Director of the Year: Individual Project, Best Directing Portfolio – Specialty, Best Director – Parody, Director of the Year (Body of Work), Director - Non-Feature, and Best Videography, as well as Gonzo Director of the Year from the XBIZ Awards, Best Producer Nominee from the TEAs, Best Director – Parody from XRCOs, and Top BDSM Release from AEBN's VOD Awards.

During the Black Flag era, Jim sported a mohawk and toured in punk rock bands. He still plays bass in the punk rock band Killroy at high-end venues like Roxy, Viper Room, and Knitting Factory.
