"The Social Network" trailer editor Chad Misner and creative director Mark Woollen of Mark Woolen & Associates swept the Golden Trailer Awards with four awards including "Best in Show"

It is the first time a trailer has accomplished this feat since "The Matrix" in 1999.

Last night, “The Social Network” came away from the 12th Annual Golden Trailer Awards with three wins in major categories and the coveted top honor, Best in Show. It is the first time a trailer has accomplished this feat since “The Matrix” in 1999, the year the awards show debuted. After carrying away the trophies for “Best Drama,” “Best Music” (which gauges the creative use of music in a promo reel) and “Most Original”—Sony Pictures’ “The Social Network” trailer nabbed the top honor, “Best in Show.”

Notes Golden Trailer Awards Executive Director, Evelyn Brady-Watters, “The trailer for ‘The Social Network’ lures you into the drama of the movie without any of the usual selling points in a trailer -- its famous writer, or even the name of its famous subject—but you come away knowing exactly why you want to buy a ticket. We congratulate Sony Pictures and trailer house Mark Woollen and Associates.” To see the trailer go to the Golden Trailer website.

The Awards listed below were presented at the Music Box Theatre in Los Angeles, in a ceremony marked by outrageous comedy. The night was hosted by comedian Natasha Leggero, with presenters including Upright Citizen’s Brigade’s Jon Daly (also head-writer), comedian Darren Carter (“Chelsea Lately”), voice-over actor Jim Cummings (named a “Disney Legend” in 2010), actors Clancy Brown (“Highlander”) and Patrick Fabian (“Big Love”) and teen heartthrob Dylan Minette (2010 nominee for Young Artist Award for “Let Me In”). Renowned comedians Brian Huskey, Joe Wengart, Neil Campbell and Duncan Trussell also performed. The complete list of awards in 62 categories is available on

JetBlue, Porsche and Variety top the list of this year’s sponsors, with additional support from Steiner Studios, National CineMedia, The Darling Agency, Rok!t, PRG, Position Music, Firstcom, and
