The Winners of the Golden Trailer Awards

From Indiewire:
The winners of the 10th Annual Golden Trailer Awards, which honor the best movie previews of the past year, were announced last night at the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles.
“Star Trek” took both the Summer 2009 Blockbuster Award and the trophy for Best in Show at last night’s ceremony. Among the other winners, “Man on Wire” received Best Documentary, “The Wrestler” won Best Independent, and “My Winnipeg” took home Most Original. Meanwhile Best Romance went to “500 Days of Summer,” Best Comedy to the upcoming “Bruno” while “WALL-E” took Best Animation/Family and “Frost/Nixon” Best Drama.
Notably, Lionsgate was the studio that took home the most awards, winning nine Golden Trailer Awards.
Also this year, the category Best Voice Over was renamed the Don LaFontaine Award for Best Voice Over to honor the industry veteran who contributed voice overs to thousands of movie trailers over the course of his career. LaFontaine passed away in 2008. The award went to “Tropic Thunder - ‘Hollywood Legend.’”
