The nominees for the 18th Annual Golden Trailer Awards were announced on Friday, with “The Lego Batman Movie” and its studio, Warner Bros., coming out on top.

With 11 nominations, “Lego Batman Movie” led the pack, followed by “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “La La Land,” with nine nominations each.

Warner Bros., with a total of 68 nominations, received recognition for its work on movies like “Lego Batman Movie,” “Dunkirk,” and “Wonder Woman.” In second place is Fox, with 58 nominations for films including “Alien: Covenant,” “Hidden Figures,” and “Snatched.” Universal Pictures came in third with 50 nominations for campaigns for “The Mummy,” “Get Out,” and “Atomic Blonde.”

The top trailer houses this year included Mark Woollen & Associates with 33 nominations, AV Squad with 29 noms, and Trailer Park with 28. On the agency side, LA was the leading creative print house for its work on 34 nominees.

The Golden Trailer Awards are devoted to showcasing the best in film and television marketing, and include serious awards as well as several tongue-in-cheek categories, such as the golden fleece award — given to a trailer that is said to have been better than the film itself.

This year’s competition drew a record number of submissions, up almost 50% from last year. Seventeen of the top honors will be presented live at the celebratory show, including the “best of” award for a variety of genre categories, the golden fleece, the trashiest trailer, the best summer 2017 blockbuster, and the most original.

The ceremony will take place on June 6 at Beverly Hills’ Saban Theater.
