Computer, which movie leads this year’s awards for the best movie promos?

*Siri Voice*: “That would be Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Batman Movie, which collected 11 Golden Trailer nominations today, including two different slots for best animation/family film.”

LEGO Batman was followed by nine nominations each for Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Lionsgate’s La La Land.

The 18th annual ceremony recognizes the work of trailer houses, studio marketing teams, voice-over actors, and others involved in creating commercials, trailers, poster, and assorted promotional products for films.

There are dozens of categories, but only 17 will be presented live at the June 6 event, which will be hosted by Wayne Brady.
