“The very first Golden Trailer Awards show was held 20 years ago on Sept. 21, 1999 in New York. Over the years we have had some wonderful hosts, some very special judges, and have been able to honor many great artists who work tirelessly behind the scenes to create the trailers that drive audiences to theaters,” said Evelyn Watters, Golden Trailer Awards executive director, said in a statement. “For our 20th celebration, we are going all out and we have some very special surprises and special guests planned. More than anything else, we are beyond elated at how this show has grown over the decades and how much a nomination and a trophy means to this community. It is a true validation of the extraordinary creative work that contributes to the success of the best films of the year.”

Confirmed judges for this year include producer Richard Suckle (Wonder Woman), writer/director Sam Email (Mr. Robot), producer Anthony Bregman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), director Hugh Welchmann (Loving Vincent), advertising executive Thomas Benski, film industry veteran David Dinerstein, cinematographer Dion Beebe, and over two dozen additional industry experts.
