Finally some good news for Nadya "Octomom" Suleman and her career efforts: The controversial single mom of 14 can now boast that her solo porn video has been nominated for a handful of Adult Video News (AVN) Awards.

Suleman "has been nominated for Best Celebrity Sex Tape, Best Solo Release, Best DVD Extras, and Best Marketing Campaign," reports the Huffington Post, for her porn debut.

"Octomom: Home Alone" features Nadya Suleman showering, laying on a leopard-print bed or doing chores like ironing surrounded by baby paraphernalia. The movie was released in June, following much titillating fanfare.

“I’m totally honored and blown away to even be nominated," Suleman told The Huffington Post, adding: "It was a fun and life changing experience for me to make the movie.”

Indeed, Suleman high-fived herself for doing the movie since it helped her and her substantial brood into a new rented home in Palmdale. (It didn't take long for the home to be an egging target for haters.)

Lest you think it was all fun and games determining nominees for the awards, AVN explains the laborious effort:

A committee of 10 AVN critics spent close to a month and a half compiling nominations in over 130 categories recognizing companies, talent, technicians and creative professionals across the spectrum of the adult entertainment industry.

The awards take place in Las Vegas in January. And Seth McFarlane will NOT be hosting.
