Golden Trailer Awards: ‘Cocaine Bear’, ‘Only Murders In The Building’ & ‘Oppenheimer’ Among Top Winners – Full List

The campy romp Cocaine Bear and buzzy comedy series Only Murders in the Building nabbed four trophies apiece and Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Oppenheimer took three at the 23rd annual Golden Trailer Awards, which were handed out Thursday night in Los Angeles. See the full list of winners below.

The Golden Trailers recognize the professionals working behind the scenes to craft trailers and marketing content for new movies, TV series and streaming programs. Actor-comic Missi Pyle hosted the ceremony at the Orpheum downtown.

“Each year seems to set a new bar,” said Monica Brady, who co-founded the awards with her sister Evelyn Brady-Watters. “We’re grateful for this annual opportunity to champion these artists behind the scenes.”
