This year’s Golden Trailer Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, with some of our favourite trailers of the past year scoring not only nominations, but winning prizes in their respective categories. Netflix, 20th Century Fox (including Fox Searchlight and FX Television) and Warner Bros. were the big studio winners of the night, with 13 trophies each; with agency Trailer Park walking away with nine statues – the highest for a trailer house.

Black Panther was no doubt the big winner of the night, taking home both Best in Show and Best Action awards for its full theatrical trailer ‘Crown’ (from Create Advertising Group), as well as trophies for Best Action TV Spot and Best Music TV Spot.

Amongst upcoming 2018 releases, the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald teaser trailer (Jax) won the award for Best Fantasy Adventure trailer, with Incredibles 2‘s recent full trailer (MOCEAN) taking home Best Summer Blockbuster Trailer and The Meg (Trailer Park) winning the ‘Golden Fleece – the best trailer for a not-so-best movie. Is this an indication as to the Jason Statham shark extravaganza’s quality? Only time will tell…

And this film fan’s personal favourite trailers of 2018 – the Deadpool 2 campaign – also took home awards, with the ‘Meet Cable’ piece (MOCEAN) and the Bob Ross parody teaser (MOCEAN/Big Picture) both winning Best Teaser and Most Original Trailer trophies.

Independent cinema and prestige awards season releases didn’t go unnoticed as well, with Lady Bird (Giaronomo), The Shape Of Water (MOCEAN) and I, Tonya also winning a number of awards last night.
