HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – With the first XBIZ Hollywood Conference coming to a close earlier in the day, the 5th Annual XBIZ Awards provided a glamorous and decadent nightcap to the blockbuster show.

The star-studded awards ceremony rocked the Highlands in the heart of Tinseltown, as big name industry players from the studio and web side converged to celebrate the best and brightest companies, products and services the adult entertainment industry has to offer.

With the line to stroll across the red carpet stretching the length of the complex, an eager throng of photographers and interviewers were on hand to capture the moment. A crew from Playboy TV was a popular interview destination for many attendees.

Hostess Tera Patrick and emcee Jim Henley kept the night flowing as the awards were announced, while attendees mixed and mingled in the posh nightclub.
