VAN NUYS, Calif. — Adult production company Digital Playground has been nominated for 17 Empire Awards by online adult retailer AdultDVDEmpire.com. Blockbuster release “Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge” is the top-nominated release with 9, and Robby D's “Cheerleaders” received 6 nominations. “Jesse Jane: Fuck Fantasy” was nominated for Best All Sex DVD and Digital Playground is up for Best Overall DVD Studio.

“I think it's safe to say that the adult industry has never seen a release with the production values and scope of 'Pirates II',” said Shannon Nutt, AdultDVDEmpire.com editorial director. “That's certainly reflected in the number of nominations 'Pirates II' received for this year's Empire Awards. 'Cheerleaders' was one of those titles that was released quite early last year, but the fact that it was still able to pick up a handful of nominations shows how strong and popular a title it remains in the minds of both fans and the Empire staff who worked on putting together this year's nominees.”

Fans can vote for “Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge” and “Cheerleaders” to receive the Viewer's Choice Award at the Empire Awards website.

“Thank you to everyone at Adult DVD Empire," Digital Playground CEO Samantha Lewis said. "They have a wide distribution radius, so these nominations are truly reflective of consumer opinions across the country. It's a great honor.”

The Empire Award results will be announced on Feb. 20.
