The show takes viewers to the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay Resort for the star studded red carpet and 26th annual award ceremony. Gary Miller, producer of the AVN Awards says, ''It was the best show ever with musical guest Flo Rida and big time productions like 'Pirates II' leading the way. Digital Playground pretty much swept the awards with 'Pirates II' winning just about everything and Stoya™ getting Best New Starlet. It was a really good night, especially if you're on the DP team.''

''It was truly a great year for Digital Playground,'' says Paul Fishbein, President of AVN Media Network. ''In addition to the notoriety 'Pirates II' achieved, 'Cheerleaders' was actually the best selling and best renting title in 2008. When a studio is recognized for their features, vignettes, and gonzo titles in the same year, it demonstrates a great aptitude for understanding exactly what consumers want.''
''Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge'' recently headlined major new outlets around the world like CNN, a result of numerous universities and student groups screening the movie. International notoriety coupled with Digital Playground's mainstream nature is part of the reason why the company has received so many AVN accolades over the years. Joone, the writer and director of ''Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge'' and Founder of Digital Playground says, '''Pirates II' is more than an adult film. Take out all the sex and you still have over 600 special effects, a comprehensive story, and the most beautiful girls in the world, all of which lend to our MPAA R-rated version of the movie.''
In addition to the 15 AVN awards for ''Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge'' Digital Playground's ''Cheerleaders'' was named the Top Selling and Top Renting release of 2008 and also received Best Vignette release and Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene. ''Jack's POV 9'', directed by Robby D., received Best POV release. The movie features Stoya who took home the highly coveted trophy for Best New Starlet. Digital Playground also had the Best Overall Marketing Campaign for company image.
