The 14th Annual Golden Trailer Award Winners: Disney Grabs A Bagful Full Of Trophies For 2013(May 05, 2013)
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2013
It was a big night for The Walt Disney Studios at the 14th Annual Golden Trailer Awards at the Saban Theatre on Friday night. The preview for Iron Man 3 took two awards, Best Summer Blockbuster and the top prize, Best In Show. The Wreck It Ralph trailer nabbed Best Animation/Family, Monsters University had the Most Original Trailer, and as a capper, Disney studio marketers were given the first-ever Top Of The Box Office award for their campaign on 2012s Marvels The Avengers. The studio got two additional offstage nods for Best Animation/Family TV Spot on Monsters University and Most Original Spot for Brave.
Between volleys of jokes by headliner Rob Schneider host Aisha Tyler, 18 of 67 total awards were handed out. Justin Chon of the Twilight movies presented, as did Lake Bell, writer, director and star of In A World, a critically acclaimed new comedy which has its dramatic climax at a Golden Trailer Awards ceremony.
Among other kudos, the Skyfall promo took Best Action, and Best Documentary went to the Brooklyn Castle trailer, and Best Video Game went to the Tomb Raider preview. The 18 show awards are listed below. The full list, which includes the best of the year in TV Spots, posters, foreign trailers, festival trailers and more, can be found on the Golden Trailer website.
The heroes of the GTA show are trailer cutters the people whose artistry has turned movie ads into wildly popular entertainment, generating over 5 billion streams a year. Stand-out agencies at last nights event were Trailer Park, for the Iron Man 3 and Monsters University trailers, and Buddha Jones, which won trophies for Best Independent Trailer for Silver Linings Playbook, Best Horror for Mama, and the coveted Golden Fleece Awardbest trailer for a bad moviefor Hit and Run.
Evelyn Brady-Watters reflected, Its thrilling when innovative trailers for small dramas or docs win Best In Show, but this year, the blockbusters really show off the power of a great, creative trailer. The Iron Man 3 preview is a world-wide phenomenon, and last years two-time nominee for Marvels The Avengers anchored a campaign that earned $1.5 billion and our new Top of the Box Office award.
Monica Brady, Executive Producer of the GTA, added This year were seeing such well-crafted material, with great sound design. At the theater the other night, the audience was actually clapping for the trailers theyre really gearing people up for this summer season.
