·24-min read

Disney and Warner Bros. topped the 22nd annual Golden Trailer Awards nominations, announced on Tuesday.

Disney picked up a massive haul of 85 nominations, which includes Walt Disney Motion Pictures, Disney+, National Geographic, Marvel Studios, ABC, Hulu and 20th Century Studios. In addition, it was represented by mentions of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” “Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and the Emmy-nominated docu-series “The Beatles: Get Back.”

More from Variety

Warner Media, which includes HBO and HBO Max, landed 67 noms overall. It was represented by “The Batman,” “King Richard,” “The Matrix Resurrections” and the teaser trailer for the upcoming “House of the Dragon.”

Apple TV+ was close behind with 50 noms, followed by Universal Pictures with 48, Netflix with 43 and Amazon with 32. Winners will be announced on Thursday, Oct 6, at The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles with NBC talk show personality Henry Cho hosting.

The top trailer houses included AV Squad, which includes AV Print with 39 noms, tracked by GrandSon with 37 and Tiny Hero with 29.

Co-founded by Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady, the goal of the awards is to recognize the talented professionals who work behind the scenes to create trailers and marketing content for new movies, television and streaming series. “We’re thrilled to be back in LA for this year’s ceremony,” said Brady-Watters. “We’ve recently seen a major increase in streaming and this year’s talent has been particularly elevated to keep up with how transformative the entertainment industry has become.”

Adding to new categories this year, Brady adds: “our two new categories are a reflection of the reimagined digital era that we are currently living in, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to show appreciation for their creative abilities.”

Content run between April 4, 2021, and May 31, 2022, was eligible to enter.
