As I was looking through the list of AVN award nominations I couldn’t help but think DAMN Pirates is racking up the noms. This year Digital Playground released their big budget movie, Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge. So it was no surprise to anyone that when the AVN award nominations where released Pirates II would be all over the list with an amazing 27 nominations in all. But even though their nominations were no surprise, it was a little impressive that they got so many.
