(VAN NUYS, CA) -- In a year that promises to shower Digital Playground with praise and awards, ''Babysitters'' got the ball rolling with another win at the XRCO Awards on April 30, 2008. ''Babysitters'' won for the award for ''Best release'' at the wild event.
''This was a big win for us,'' says Samantha Lewis, Digital Playground CEO. '''Babysitters' is a prime example of the type of film we pride ourselves on making. Based on the ever growing sales numbers, we already know that 'Babysitters' is a run away hit with our fans. Now to be honored by XRCO proves that the film is equally appreciated by the critics. It's nice to receive such an affirmation of all our hard work to make quality films that people enjoy watching.''
The XRCO Awards is the only show that is strictly for industry insiders, and is closed to the public. XRCO is made up leading adult critics from publications and internet sites. Hosted in Hollywood, the show is more of a party meant to honor various works of achievement in adult filmmaking by industry peers, rather than a formal ceremony. The evening saw a mix of old-school porn stars and hot newcomers all enjoying each other's company and praising their respected work. Digital Playground's Craig was present to receive the studio's award for their work on ''Babysitters''.
XRCO Chairman and widely known adult film critic, Dirty Bob offered up the following comment about the night's events: ''the 24th annual XRCO Awards Show, held Wednesday evening at the Highlands Hollywood, was a huge success with nearly a thousand members of the adult industry in attendance. The show went as smoothly as any similar adult event and everyone appeared thrilled with the new upgraded venue for this time-honored event. Regarding the voting...Digital Playground's win for Best release of 2007 with 'Babysitters'...was...slick as a baby's bottom.''
PWeasels, critic for GameLink.com and one of the voting members of XRCO, wrote this about ''Babysitters'' when it first came out: '''Babysitters' sits at the top of the pinnacle...with Robby D.'s lighthearted approach, Digital Playground's resources and Hd equipment, and the combined talent of so many of [Digital Playground]'s contract stars and regular players, it's hard to see how 'Babysitters' could miss.''
''Babysitters'' recently received the Adam Film World Names award for ''Best Gonzo Comedy''. These wins add to the impressive 3 awards at the 2008 AVN Awards and its awards for ''2007 HD-DVD of the Year'' (CAVR) and ''2007 Critics' Choice'' (Adult DVD Review).
