2016 Golden Trailer Awards

I’ve always loved good movie trailers. To me a trailer represents the promise of an exciting new story, our first introduction to a concept and world we’ve never seen before. When edited together artfully, a movie trailer can become its own work of art. Every year, the The Golden Trailer Awards are held to award the year’s “most outstanding achievements in motion picture and television marketing.” The 2016 Golden Trailer Awards nominations have been revealed, find out which trailers and marketing campaigns were chosen for the 17th annual competition.

Here is the official information:

Universal Pictures led this year’s count by studio with a combined total of 46 nominations (including Focus Features) for films including The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Hail! Caesar, Steve Jobs, Straight Outta Compton and The Secret Life of Pets, among others. In second place by studio is Fox (which includes Fox Searchlight), with a total of 44 nominations for work on projects including Deadpool, The Martian and The Revenant among other titles. Warner Bros. (which includes subsidiaries including New Line Cinema) scored with 37 nominations on campaigns ranging from Mad Max: Fury Road and Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice to Black Mass and Suicide Squad. Disney (which includes Marvel Studios and other companies) tallied 36 nominations for their work on films including Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Jungle Book, Inside Out, and Alice Through The Looking Glass. Lionsgate garnered 34 nods for their work on films such as Sicario, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, as well as others.

Top trailer houses in this year’s pack included Trailer Park with 28 noms, Mark Woollen & Associates with 21 nominations, AV Squad had 20, Zealot had 18 nods this year and Buddha Jones earned 16. On the agency side, LA was the leading creative house for their work on 32 of this year’s print nominees. This year’s competition drew a record number of submissions, up nearly 15% from last year’s total.

The list of Golden Trailer Awards nominations follows. Let me warn you that because this is an industry award show, the list is long and filled with a ton of categories.
