Trailers get a golden ticket at kudofest

Golden Trailer Awards honor year's top key-artists

Like the shorter, best-parts version of other industry kudofests, the Golden Trailer Awards were mercifully brisk in honoring the year’s top key-artists.

“Trailers are the most important and best part of the movie. I just wish that when they were playing, I wasn’t still out in my car getting stoned,” joked host Natasha Leggero at the top of the show.

Amid an ever-revolving cast of presenters that included thesp Clancy Brown, voice actor Jim Cummings and comedian Darren Carter, the familiar face of the evening became that of Mark Woollen, who collected six trophies, including best in show for “The Social Network.”

Of their inspired choice to use Belgian girls’ choir Scala in the trailer, an associate of Woollen’s confided, “Mark had the song for like three years in his library” just waiting for such an opportunity.
