Part of an ongoing series

When visibly-shaken Digital Playground contract girl Stoya walked onstage to accept her AVN Adult Movie Award for Best New Starlet -- against a formidable lineup that included Lexi Belle, Tori Black, Faye Reagan, and Ryder Skye -- she concluded her speech with, "And thank you to just about everyone that jerks off to my smut."

Against such formidable competition for what is "the most coveted award among performers," there was bound to be discontent afterward, and sure enough, one online fan was apparently so outraged that he created a "tale of the tape" in Black's favor.

But Stoya chimed in, posting, "Guys.. I'm not going to get into a discussion here or reply to anything because I feel like this kind of thread has too much potential to get a little ugly, but no one knows why AVN does what they do, and when the nominations came out it was a fucking honor to even be nominated WITH Tori and the other girls. I've met Tori on set, and she really does look amazing fresh out of bed while she's waiting to get in makeup. She also looks gorgeous after a scene with smeary makeup and cum on her face. Frankly, I'd rather just have her sit on my face and try to express with my tongue how hot she is." And Black was equally diplomatic, writing, "i'm on the same page, i'm proud to have been nominated at all, let alone have so many people pulling for me. stoya is a great performer and there's room for the both of us so this is no cause for argument. thanks for the support but you have to realize it's anyones guess who wins. i'm ok, happy for stoya and just as enthusiastic as i was before. and sexy lady - i'll meet you in the boudoir. ;)"

Indeed, 2008 was the biggest year thus far for Stoya, who won the "triple crown" of Fleshbot awards, including Crush Object of 2008, Extreme Pornstar Champion, and Co-Supreme Comandress, not to mention XCritic's Best New Adult Performer, Rog Reviews' Fan Faves Best Newbie, and Venus Berlin's Eroticline Awards for Best US Newcomer in recent months. And winning Best New Starlet capped off such a remarkable year for the "force of nature" that on the day after the awards show, she gleefully admitted, with an extra sparkle in her eye, that she couldn't wipe the smile off her face.
