Jay Mohr Set to Host 15th Annual Golden Trailer Awards
Comedian, actor, radio host and best selling author, Jay Mohr will serve as master of ceremonies for the 15th Annual Golden Trailer Awards, it was announced today by Evelyn Brady-Watters, Golden Trailer Awards Executive Director, along with the show's executive producer Monica Brady. One of the most anticipated evenings of the year for film marketing executives and movie fans, The Golden Trailer Awards will take place on Friday, May 30 with pre-party festivities beginning at 7 pm at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills. The show begins at 8 PM.
The Golden Trailer Awards acknowledge excellence in motion picture marketing and are presented to nominees in 70 diverse categories that range from serious to lighthearted, including Best Summer 2014 Blockbuster Trailer Award, Trashiest Trailer, Most Romantic Trailer, Best In Show, and the Golden Fleece Award, the statuette that goes to the best trailer for the ‘not best’ movie. Only 17 of the top honors are presented "live" on stage at The Saban Theater during a show which routinely sells out.
“We could not be more excited to have Jay hosting our show,” said Brady-Watters. “He is a great entertainer and comedian and he is the perfect choice to lead our awards ceremony this year. He will infuse The Golden Trailer Awards with the kind of humor and heart that our guests have come to expect. We feel very fortunate to be in such great hands.”

ABOUT JAY MOHR

After landing most comedians’ dream job at Saturday Night Live, Jay was cast opposite Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire and Jennifer Anniston in Picture Perfect. Jay has had two highly-rated comedy specials (one on Comedy Central and one on Showtime) and appeared in 25 films with 13 Oscar winners. After starring in his own groundbreaking series (Action), produced by Joel Silver, Jay played the lead role for two seasons on the critically-acclaimed CBS comedy Gary Unmarried. He has guest-starred on over 50 television dramas and comedy series.
Jay has maintained a balance between comedy and acting, while taking on new challenges in other fields. In 2004, he wrote the best-selling book Gasping for Airtime, about his time on SNL and his battle with panic attacks.

Throughout his journey, Jay has always remained, deep in his bones, a stand-up, one of the 100 greatest of all time according to Comedy Central. He continues to sell out theaters across the country, where he makes the same invitation to every audience: "Lets just jump off a cliff together and build our wings on the way down!"
