Nominees for the 23rd annual Golden Trailer Awards have been announced and this year Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, Ted Lasso and Stranger Things lead with the most mentions. 

The Golden Trailer Awards are a celebration of — you guessed it — movie and TV show trailers. Taking a movie or show and creating a trailer that represents the movie without giving too much away (hopefully, anyway — Last Christmas, we're looking at you!) is an art form and the awards are presided over by a jury of A-list industry professionals including producers, directors, actors, writers and marketing creatives. 

Nomination categories resemble those of traditional awards ceremonies, so you'll see Best Action, Comedy, Documentary, Horror and more. Given Hollywood's ever changing landscape, you also see some new categories like Best Streaming Trailers, TrailerBytes and Best Social Media Campaigns, since social media and trailers go hand-in-hand these days. There are award categories that celebrate best posters, radio spots, viral campaigns, advertising, billboards as well as technical awards for Best Music, Voice Over, Editing and more.

"Year after year, we're beyond ecstatic to play a part in honoring the boundless creativity that trailer professionals bring to the industry," Evelyn Brady-Watters, Golden Trailer Awards co-founder, told Deadline. "In this ever-changing landscape of film, television and streaming, the significance of a captivating trailer, regardless of medium, has reached unprecedented heights."
