VAN NUYS, Calif.—Rosebud Productions has received five Urban X Award nominations for its Heavy Metal series.

The Urban X Awards honors producers, directors, talent, companies and agencies creating and contributing to the best in ethnic content. This year, Rosebud Productions’ Heavy Metal series received nominations for Best All Sex Release (Heavy Metal XIII), Best Anal Release (Heavy Metal IX), Best Anal Series (Heavy Metal), Best Anal Sex Scene (Lexington Steele & Katie St. Ives, Heavy Metal IX), and Best Black Release (Heavy Metal VII).
