Golden Trailer Awards Reveal Their 20th Annual Competition Nominees

The Golden Trailer Awards (GTAs) today announced their 20th annual set of nominees. Created in 1999 by sisters Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady, the GTAs celebrate movie marketing executives and companies that create film trailers, commercials, and posters. The show has come a long way from its beginnings twenty years ago, when Quentin Tarantino agreed to serve as a judge, and has become an establishment in the film marketing community. “More than anything else, we are beyond elated at how this show has grown over the decades and how much a nomination and a trophy means to this community. It is a true validation of the extraordinary creative work that contributes to the success of the best films of the year,” said Watters in a statement.

Netflix leads this year’s nominations with 66 nominations for its films and series, including Roma, “Stranger Things: Season 3” and Bird Box.  Warner Bros follows the tally by studio with 59 nominations and Universal with 54. With 12 nominations, A Star Is Born has earned the most nominations of any film, closely followed by Roma (11), and US (10). Top nominations by vendors include Trailer Park with 32 nominations, Buddha Jones with 27, and AV Squad with 26.

This year’s ceremony will take place on Wednesday, May 29th at The Theatre at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.
