Held this year at Factory in West Hollywood, it was a blend of surfer-choice awards for the studios, websites and the many, hot online stars - with the industry awards for the business leaders and back-end support that makes up the gay adult online entertainment industry.
Tim and Roma captured the wandering star at their usual terrific red Carpet coverage and some outtakes can be seen on their site.
With mistresses of ceremonies Chico's Angels keeping the show lively (as much as all that AquaNet and crinoline would allow) - and Chi Chi LaRue focusing the crowd with her famous resonance - as well as some great music - the stage was a blur of stars and business people doing their best Oscar-speech impersonations...
CCBill was up for four awards this year - and I was shocked and privileged to personally win the Business Person of the Year! It is a terrific honor, and I am thankful to all of those who voted for us, and me. I am lucky to have so many good friends in this industry and we have had a blast working with Cybersocket this past year - and look forward to many more years of the same.
CCBill believes in our market and believes in our causes, which makes this a great place to work and be connected with.
