10th Annual Golden Trailer Awards - Here Are The Winners

The Golden Trailer Awards are presented and run by siblings, Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady. A panel of judges selected from top level directors, producers, actors, writers, executives, exhibitors, advertising creatives and critics views the trailers and votes on them. With comedians hosting and presenting, the awards are handed out at a live ceremony in May.
The first Golden Trailer Awards ceremony was held on September 21, 1999 in New York City. The show is televised and was carried on the Reelz Channel in 2007 and Fox's MyNetworkTV in 2008.

Movie trailers play an increasingly important role in entertaining us and helping us determine where to spend our leisure time. The best trailers are works of art in their own right, expertly blending elements of cinema and advertising.

Each year through an open competition judged by film industry notables, the Golden Trailer Awards recognize the creative people who make movie trailers, and the best examples of their unique art, in a gala award show.

The next Golden Trailer Awards Show will take place Thursday, June 4th, 2009 at the Directors Guild Theater Complex in Los Angeles.

The Golden Trailer Awards is the awards show devoted to feature film previews. Since moviegoers consistently rate movie trailers as the most entertaining part of the theater experience, the Golden Trailer Awards celebrates the craftsmanship and allure of these potent mini-epics with a fast-paced show whose frenetic and sometimes irreverent style is perfect for the post-MTV era.

Taking only 90 minutes to roll through 16 categories ranging from Best Drama to the Golden Fleece, the Golden Trailer Awards is as diverse and exciting as the art form to which it pays homage.

Here is a video that tells what the Golden Trailer Awards are all about.
