TAMPA, Fla.—It was a busy day for the women of Wicked Pictures at the 17th annual NightMoves Awards, held Oct. 12 in Tampa, Fla. Contract beauties and 2040 stars jessica drake, Kaylani Lei, and Alektra Blue basked in the spotlight as members of the adult entertainment community gathered for the ceremony at the Dallas Bull.

In addition to hosting the second half of the show, they also accepted several major awards, including the coveted NightMoves First Choice Award, which was bestowed upon 2040, Brad Armstrong’s new sci-fi thriller. The director's previous fantasy blockbuster, Fallen, was honored with a trophy for Best Feature Production (Editor's Choice).

Kudos came Wicked's way throughout the night, with drake snaring the coveted Best Female Performer (Editor's Choice) award while actress/filmmaker Stormy Daniels received a trophy for Best Director (Editor's Choice). Both women are award-winning performers whose contracts with Wicked have allowed them to grow as directors and storytellers. Taken together, these two triumphs exemplify the company's ongoing desire to nurture the best and brightest talent in adult entertainment—a commitment further recognized by a NightMoves Award for Best Production Company (Editor's Choice).

Looking back at the night's festivities, drake reflected, "I'm honored to have won the Editor's Choice award for Best Female Performer, and so pleased that Fallen won Best Feature Production. I'd like to thank Paul, Tracy, Drew, Tommy, Art and everyone else at NightMoves, as well as Wicked for sending me."

In the face of a challenging economy and a changing financial landscape, Wicked Pictures is proud to reaffirm its ongoing commitment to quality, and warmly congratulates its talented stars and technicians on their success in Tampa.
