11th Annual Golden Trailer Awards® Nominations Announced. Awards Show June 10 in L.A. Will Fete Best Movie Trailers of 2010

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2010

Nominations for the 11th Annual Golden Trailer Awards® were announced today, with nods to promo reels ranging from summer blockbusters including “Iron Man 2,” “The Last Airbender”, and “Prince of Persia,” to dramatic fare such as “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.” The annual live award ceremony will take place at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on the evening of June 10th, 2010. Golden Trailer® event co-founders and producers Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady, revealed the list today, along with a roster of jurors made up of industry pros, among them Edgar Winter, Marc Webb and Andy Samberg.

Created in 1999 to celebrate the art, craft and fun of movie promotion, The Golden Trailer Awards are internationally recognized as the top honor in the field, coveted by trailer producers, and watched carefully by marketing decision-makers in the industry. But, while the awards are serious business for the winners, for the rest of us they are just plain fun.

Sixteen of the 61 categories of Golden Trailer Awards® will be distributed on June 10th during a popular gala night laced with comedy and entertainment, with host and presenters to be announced. Among past years’ hosts are Dean Edwards, Tom Green, Dennis Miller and Kathy Griffin. The event is open to the public.

Nominations in 61 categories are posted on and are below—ranging from big-budget extravaganzas to smaller, more unconventional reels. The nominating committee selected from a total pool of 954 entries. With 38 nominations, Lionsgate is the clear front-runner for a studio, for films as varied as “Kick Ass” and “Precious.” Warner Bros. follows with 21 nominations. On the creative front, Ignition leads the pack among trailer houses, boasting 46. The nomination categories, which cover movie trailers, posters, and TV spots, range from the expected—Best Action, Best Romance, Best Horror, etc.—to the irreverent, including The Golden Fleece trophy applauding the best reel for a bad movie, and Trashiest Trailer. Additionally, there is a category for Best Videogame Trailer.

The nominees will be judged by a prestigious jury of entertainment pros, including legendary rock musician Edgar Winters, who will be on his third tour with Ringo Starr and the All-Starr Band this summer and whose music can be heard in no fewer than fifteen film and television projects; film and music video director Marc Webb, whose credits include the next “Spider-Man” film, last summer’s breakout indie hit “500 Days of Summer,” and music videos for artists ranging from Miley Cyrus to Green Day and Diddy; Ruth Vitale, who has headed indie film powerhouses such as First Look Pictures, Paramount Classics and Fine Line Pictures, and, as executive producer, has shepherded such films as “Don Juan de Marco,” “The Virgin Suicides,” “Gummo,” “You Can Count on Me,” “Paris, Je T’Aime” and the upcoming “Audrey”; Jennifer Merin, President of the Alliance of Women Film Journalists and editor, writer, and critic for Documentaries, Women on Film, and New York Press; and writer-performer-filmmakers Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer, and Jorma Taccone—the Emmy winning team collectively known as “The Lonely Island”—responsible for creating more than 60 Digital Short Films for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Additionally, the group premiered its first feature film “Hot Rod” in 2007, which Shaffer directed and co-starred in with Samberg and Taccone. Taccone is the writer-director of “MacGruber,” opening this summer.

Hearty Pawshake Seals Hallmark Channel – Best Friends Movie Premiere Partnership Deal

“You Lucky Dog” photo by Chris Helcermanas-Benge/2009 Crown Media

Studio City, CA (Vocus) May 19, 2010

Lucky Dogs Everywhere Benefit from Hallmark Channel and Best Friends Animal Society Partnership to Find Homes for Pets. Hallmark Channel’s Premiere of You Lucky Dog Teams Up with Best Friends’ Adoption Option to Raise Awareness for Pet Adoption

Hallmark Channel and Best Friends Animal Society have shaken paws over a new partnership to help raise awareness of the issue of homeless pets in conjunction with Hallmark Channels’ premiere of the original movie You Lucky Dog. The movie, starring Harry Hamlin, Natasha Henstridge and a border collie named Lucky, premieres on Hallmark Channel June 26th with a hopeful and heart-tugging message about rescuing pets and making them a celebrated part of the family.

Best Friends Animal Society, known for its efforts to build a better world through kindness to animals, is working with Hallmark Channel to showcase the movie while championing ”No More Homeless Pets®,” and encouraging pet-lovers everywhere to consider adoption from a shelter or rescue organization when their next pet comes into their lives. Best Friends recently launched an adoption pledge, and the organization hopes that visibility from You Lucky Dog will lead people to think more seriously about pet adoption in the future.

“Hallmark Channel embraces pets as part of the family, and with the story told in You Lucky Dog it was natural to extend our love of pets beyond the television screen to make a difference for adopted animals and families who bring them into their lives,” said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Hallmark Channel. “Working with Best Friends Animal Society has brought tremendous stories of pet devotion to light, and we’re proud to be a part of such an effort.”

Hallmark Channel and Best Friends will work “paw-in-hand” to cooperatively market the movie premiere and the adoption option pledge campaign, promoting the initiative at local animal adoption events and public outreach opportunities associated with the movie premiere.

“We are excited to partner with Hallmark Channel to promote the life-saving value of adoption in conjunction with the movie release,” said Vicki Kilmer-Rinker, Director of Marketing for Best Friends Animal Society. “By combining Hallmark Channel’s dedication to families and their pets and Best Friends’ focus on helping all pets find loving homes, we’ve found the perfect fit to make a PAWsitive impact for pets and their families across the country.”

From on-air Public Service Announcements and advertising and program tie-ins including celebrities associated with the partners and involved in You Lucky Dog, targeted media and publicity attention, all three program partners will be bringing attention to the pet adoption message through the premiere of You Lucky Dog and beyond.

You Lucky Dog and Hallmark Channel will be participating in the LA Spring Adoption Festival on May 23rd in Los Angeles, as well as the first Tri-State Super Adoption event June 12-13 in Livingston, N.J.

Lord of the Movie Santas – Billy Bob Thornton and Richard Attenborough go head-to-head

(PRWeb UK) December 24, 2010

To mark Christmas 2010 LOVEFiLM, Europe’s largest subscription service streaming movies and TV episodes over the internet and sending DVDs by post, asked over 1000 of its members to vote for the Best Movie Santa, with Attenborough’s portrayal as kind-hearted Kris Kringle in 1994 Christmas favourite, Miracle on 34th Street earning him top spot on the nation’s nice list with nearly a third of the votes (26 per cent).

A surprising second on the poll with 14 per cent was Billy Bob Thornton’s turn as a drunken thieving conman who dresses as Santa to rob department stores in Bad Santa. The perfect catharsis to generic Christmas film fare, this unlikely festive tale gave the bad boy actor an advantage over other classic Clauses on the list…

Ho-ho-ho-ing into third place with ten per cent is Tim Allen as divorcee Scott Calvin in The Santa Clause; he is disgusted to learn his ex and her husband have told his son that Santa isn’t real. His son’s belief is firmly restored when Tim Allen unexpectedly gets a new job as the big man himself.

Sugar and spice and all things nice, David Huddlestone left the nation’s hearts aglow as Father Christmas in 1985’s classic Santa Claus: The Movie. Supported by an all star cast including Dudley Moore and John Lithgow, the film answered every child’s questions from how reindeer’s fly to how Santa ascends the chimney securing Huddlestone fourth place in the poll (nine per cent).

Miracle on 34th Street appears again in the top ten with nine per cent of the votes for Edmund Gwenn’s original 1947 performance as Kris Kringle. The movie won Academy Awards for Best Actor (Edmund Gwenn), Best Writing, Original Story and Best Writing, Screenplay – undoubtedly one of the best festive flicks of all time.

Others making the top ten Best Santa Clauses include Father Christmases from The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Grinch, The Polar Express, and Elf.

The Best Film Santa Clauses were as follows:

1.    Richard Attenborough in Miracle on 34th Street (1994) – 26%

2.    Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa – 14%

3.    Tim Allen in The Santa Clause – 10%

4.    David Huddlestone in Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) – 9%

5.    Edmund Gwenn in Miracle on 34th Street (1947) –9%

6.    Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas – 8%

7.    Jim Carey in The Grinch – 6%

8.    Tom Hanks in The Polar Express (2003) – 4%

9.    Ed Asner in Elf – 3 %

10.     Mel Smith in Raymond Brigg’s Father Christmas – 2%

(Other – 9%)

Fliss White, Head of Brand Marketing at LOVEFiLM commented:

“While he may have a reputation for being a bad boy, Billy Bob Thornton has proven he can be a good movie Santa – it’s great to see a mix of traditional Clauses such as Lord Attenborough alongside edgier actors like Billy Bob Thornton in the top ten.

“With over 70,000 DVD titles and the option to watch movies online you can find your favourite Father Christmases from LOVEFiLM instantly to keep the family entertained over the festive season.”
