Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2008
From the spectacular 1920's-era Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, this fun-filled celebration of movie previews is hosted by world-renowned Sinbad, with presenters culled from the ranks of today's top and up-and-coming stand-ups. The Movie Preview Awards special airs nationwide on MyNetworkTV, Memorial Day-Monday, May 26th, from 8-10 p.m./7-9 p.m. CT. For local station and schedule information, go to http://www.mynetworktv.com
Golden Trailer Award™ statuettes will be presented for categories including Summer 2008 Blockbuster Award, Best Horror, Best Comedy, Best Romance, and audience favorites, the Golden Fleece Award (best trailer for a bad movie) and Trashiest Trailer.
At the end of the night, the biggest winner of all will be announced for Trailer of the Year, as selected by USATODAY.com voters.
The presenters for this year's event are Dean Edwards ("Premium Blend," "Saturday Night Live"), Whitney Cummings ("Made of Honor," "VH1's Best Week Ever"), Anjelah Johnson ("The Shield"), Jasper Redd ("Premium Blend"), Jordin Rubin ("Crank Yankers,"), Mo Mandel (stand-up comedian), Nick Kroll ("Caveman and VH1's "Best Week Ever") and Jeff Ross (MTV series "Where My Dogs At?"). And, straight from six weeks at the Luxor Las Vegas, the musical comedy performers, the Three Redneck Tenors make a special appearance.
Created in 1999 to celebrate the art, craft and fun of movie promotion, The Golden Trailer Awards™ have established themselves as the top prize in the field, coveted by trailer producers, and watched carefully by studio heads and 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--movie audiences have always loved trailers, but in recent years previews have exploded as a favorite form of entertainment, ranking as the #3 category of over 10 billion videos viewed online in the U.S. each year.
