Our History

The Golden Trailer Awards was created in 1999 by siblings Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady. The GTAs is an unconventional ceremony that honors excellence in feature film trailers and movie marketing. The GTAs recognize the trailers, posters and innovative, new experiential concepts as well as the ideas which drive the movie industry and have become as anticipated and revered as much as the movies themselves. A panel of judges is selected from top-level directors, producers, actors, writers, executives, exhibitors, and advertising creatives. With comedians hosting and presenting, the awards are handed out at a live ceremony in May. Previous hosts include Wayne Brady (2017, 2016) and TJ Miller (2015).

The 1st Golden Trailer Awards ceremony was held on September 21, 1999 in New York City. 

The Golden Trailer Awards statues are hand-crafted by New York firm, Society Awards.
