On Thursday, March 14th, The El Capitan Theatre played host to the 3rd Annual Golden Trailer Awards. The event honoring film trailers for their artistic value was hosted by comedian Kathy Griffin.
Winners were selected by a panel of industry judges that included Actor Ben Stiller (“Zoolander,” “Meet the Parents”); Producer Kathleen Kennedy (“Jurassic Park,” “E.T.”); Director Brett Ratner, (“The Family Man,” “Rush Hour”); Director Atom Egoyan, (“The Sweet Hereafter”); Film Critic Peter Travers (Rolling Stone); Film Critic Jonathan Foreman (The New York Post); Michael W. Patrick (CEO, Carmike Cinemas); McCarty Baker (Executive Director, The Art Bridge); Quinn Coleman (Executive, Warner Bros.); Jim Ward (VP Marketing, Lucasfilm Ltd.); Producer Forrest Murray (“Spitfire Grill”); and Jim Gibbons (EVP Marketing, Paramount Pictures).
Launched by industry veterans — and sisters — Evelyn and Monica Brady, the Golden Trailer Awards is the film industry’s awards show for feature film trailers. “It’s the movie awards show guaranteed against attention deficit disorder,” says Monica Brady. “Not only is it perfectly paced for our society, it celebrates the people who condense 120 minutes of movie into a two-minute minor opus.”
