BERLIN - Digital Playground won four trophies at the 2008 Erotic eLine Awards, dominating the U.S. categories at the international awards show held during the Venus Berlin adult trade fair.
Digital Playground contract director Robby D. won for Best International Direction, while Jesse Jane received the award for Best US Actress, and Stoya was named Best U.S. Newcomer. The studio also received a trophy for Film With the Highest Potential for Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge.
New Digital Playground contract girl Angelina Armani made her public debut at the show, signing autographs and posing for photos alongside DP girls Jesse Jane, Stoya, Shay Jordan, Katsuni, and Riley Steele. Robby D. and Digital Playground CEO Samantha Lewis also attended.
"What an amazing week in Berlin," said Lewis. "I'd like to thank Peter Bubel, The Venus Fair staff, Martha Johnson and everyone at Medien eLINE magazine for their coverage and support. The show was phenomenal. It was wonderful to see our clients, discuss new business, and gauge the audience's reaction to our stars and product. It was great to receive four awards. I am extremely proud of Jesse, Stoya, and Robby D. for their extraordinarily hard work this year and I'm equally honored by the acknowledgments. The award for Pirates II is something that we can all revel in."
Last weekend's show marked Robby D.'s second win as Best U.S. Director in four years. Jesse Jane has now won Best US Actress award three times in her five-year career.
"It's great to see Digital Playground's constant strong presence in Europe," said Robby D. "Thank you to my fans all over the world for your continued support in my quest to continually make the horniest porn available. Maybe it's time for Jack to pay a little visit to Europe."
Jesse Jane said, "It's such a rush to hear your name called. I'm overwhelmed by the love I continue to receive from my fans. I love you all right back. The award is for you."
Added Stoya: "It's awesome to win especially considering the hot girls I was up against. Digital Playground continues to let me develop my career in a nonconformist way, so I'm glad that I can share this award with Sam, Joone, and Adella as a big thanks. This was my first time in Europe and I can hardly wait to come back. It's nice to have such dedicated fans all over the world."
