     June 1, 2018


The 19th Annual Golden Trailer Awards were held last night, honoring the very best in motion picture marketing, and Black Panther rightfully walked away with the top award of the night. The Marvel Studios film wowed audiences with its insanely rewatchable trailers, and indeed the trailer “Crown” won both Best in Show and Best Action, while the film also took home two TV Spot awards. Elsewhere, Isle of Dogs won Best Animation/Family, Lady Bird won Best Comedy, A Quiet Place won Best Horror, and Best Picture winner The Shape of Water won the award for Best Drama.

All in all it was a pretty just ceremony, as Baby Driver rightfully won Best Music for the “Tekillyah” trailer and Deadpool 2 took home Best Teaser honors for the “Cable Red” teaser trailer.
