Octomom Nadya Suleman "Excited" About Porn Award Nominations

Nadya Suleman, the infamous Octomom, not only starred in her first adult movie earlier this year, she's also up for the industry's annual equivalent of the Oscar! Suleman's debut pornographic film nominated for four AVN Awards in Las Vegas next month.

The controversial solo performance titled "Octomom Home Alone" is up for awards in the following categories: Best Celebrity Sex Tape, Best Solo Release, Best DVD Extras and Best Marketing Campaign.

"I'm very excited to attend the AVN Awards," the mother of 14 tells The Huffington Post. "I've never been to anything like that before so I’m really looking forward to it."

Suleman -- who once said "I wouldn't even kiss somebody for money" -- doesn't even consider the movie to be porn, at least the kind most audiences expect -- because she isn't in the video with anyone but herself. The "self-pleasure video" was still considered porn by the adult movie industry, however, in order to qualify for the AVNs. 

"My first shoot was amazing," the single mother told Huffington Post after she recorded the film last spring. "Such a learning experience for me in so many ways. I don't think I could have asked for a better crew to work with. They were so patient and willing to teach me."

The financially troubled mother is expected to attend the annual awards ceremony in Vegas.

"I'm totally honored and blown away to even be nominated," she said. "It was a fun and life changing experience for me to make the movie."
