Digital Playground Honored With 13 Nominations From Adult Dvd Empire


Digital Playground received 13 nominations from Adult DVD Empire, three-time winner of AVN’s Best Retail Website and largest online retailer of adult DVDs in the world. Joone’s mega-blockbuster, “Pirates,” earned 8 nominations including nods in 2 of the most prestigious categories, Best Feature DVD and Best Overall DVD. All of Digital Playground’s esteemed directors received nominations. Joone received multiple nods for “Pirates” and “Virtual Sex with Teagan Presley,” and both of his titles were selected for Empire’s 2005 Viewers Choice award, making Digital Playground the only company with multiple nods in this category. Robby D. was honored with a Best Gonzo nom for “Jack’s Teen America 5” and Celeste received a Best All-Sex DVD nomination for “Teagan: All American Girl.” Company founder and director, Joone says, “I would like to thank everyone at Adult DVD Empire for acknowledging our 2005 contributions.” Company President, Samantha Lewis beams, “The 2005 Empire Award nominations are a wonderful reflection of our diversity and success in varying markets. I’d like to thank Adult DVD Empire, CEO Jeff Rix and all his staff for their commitment to excellence and continued support of Digital Playground.”

The Empire Awards honor excellence in DVD technologies; the 2005 nominations reflect achievement in 19 categories including “Editor’s Choice Award,” “Best Selling DVD” and the “Viewer’s Choice Award,” which is chosen by consumers. Adult DVD Empire Editorial Director, Shannon T. Nutt says, “We believe that this year’s nominees are outstanding selections in their respective categories and really showcase some of the advancements adult DVD has made in the past year. We want to congratulate Digital Playground on its multiple nominees, including “Pirates,” which tied for the most-nominated release this year. I don’t think anyone who has seen Joone’s epic feature can deny what a groundbreaker it has been for adult film and the industry as a whole, and we’re proud to have such a great release represented in so many of this year’s categories.” Director of Adult Operations, Mike Barry says, “Titles are nominated and voted on by a panel of critics comprised by Empire staff and other aficionados of adult entertainment. The “Viewers’ Choice Award” follows a different process. This is selected by consumers, they vote on our website and we accept one vote from each unique email address and identity.”
