Wayne Brady Returns to Host 2017 GOLDEN TRAILER AWARDS This June
Wayne Brady will be returning for the second year in a row to host the most exciting night in motion picture and television marketing - the 18th Annual GOLDEN TRAILER AWARDS, it was announced today by Evelyn Watters, Golden Trailer Awards Executive Director, and Monica Brady, the show's Executive Producer.
The Golden Trailer Awards celebrate the most innovative and captivating work of film marketers: trailer creative houses, advertising agencies, studios and companies that create movie and television trailers, commercials and posters worldwide.
The 2017 Golden Trailer Award show and red carpet will take place on the evening of Tuesday, June 6th at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills.
The Golden Trailer Awards presents awards in fifteen 'show' categories including Best Summer Blockbuster Trailer Award, Trashiest Trailer, Most Original, Best Teaser, Best of Show, and the much anticipated Golden Fleece Award, bestowed on the best trailer for the film where the marketing was considered better than the film itself. In 2014, the producers added the BOW award (Box Office Weekend award), to recognize the film with the highest three day weekend box office receipts. The fast paced award ceremony is capped off with the coveted GTA18 award for 'Best of Show'.
Nominees are displayed throughout the venue during the opening reception. Following the ceremony, the winners of the non-show for International, TV Theatrical, TV Streaming, Posters, Pre Show, Book and Legit Trailers are featured throughout the venue during the post party, keeping the anticipation and energy level high. In total, Golden Trailer Awards are presented to winners across 114 diverse categories. Last year, more than 1,100 studio marketing executives, movie fans, celebrities and trailer editors were on hand to celebrate as Open Road Films & Insync + Beemis Balkind's trailer for the film "Spotlight" took home top honors as the Best of Show.
"Wayne Brady was the perfect host last year. His stage presence, original sketches and his observations about movies, trailers and the film industry were hilarious and a hit with our Hollywood audience. The #1 request we had from our guests was to find a way to get Wayne back so we did and we can't wait to see how he tops his performance this year," said Evelyn Watters, GTA Executive Director.

Wayne got his big break on first the British and then the ABC version of WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? His name became synonymous with off-the-cuff brilliance. He went on to star in and produce a highly-rated summer sketch show and an Emmy-winning talk show for ABC before joining forces with Dave Chappelle to create the now classic "Training Day" sketch, showing audiences both sides of his comedic skill and depth as an actor.
