Robby D.'s best seller ''Cheerleaders'' received Best release, while Digital Playground contract girl Stoya™ received the trophy for New Starlet. Angelina Armani™, Digital Playground's newest contract star, gracefully represented the studio through her acceptance of the honors and presentation of three additional categories. Jared Rutter, XRCO founding member says, ''It's no surprise that Digital Playground walked away with five awards. Their movies have always been held in high esteem by adult critics. This is the second year running that they've won Best release—'Cheerleaders' was preceded by 'Babysitters'. As for 'Pirates II', it's also no surprise that it won three awards. It's a milestone in adult moviemaking.''
