And the Nominees for the 2nd Annual Beerbohm Awards are...

In the spirit of this blog, welcome to the 2nd Annual Beerbohm Awards: in recognition of movie trailers. Please note that the Beerbohms are awarded only to movie trailers that I've seen since last years' Beerbohms and are not an award for the actual movie. The Oscars are for that...

For 2013, I've dropped the Best Music in a trailer award because not much jumped out at me this year.  I've also dropped worst spoiler trailer because there were just too many.  Worst Trailer now covers that.  Instead I've added two new categories:  Best Independent Trailer and Best Documentary Trailer.  All you independent film makers, please keep sending me your trailers, I really enjoy them.

So, without further doo-doo....

Here are your nominees for the 2nd Annual Beerbohm Awards for Movie Trailers:

The Best Documentary Award is given to the documentary trailer that stirred thought and emotion while generating interest.

The nominees for Best Documentary Trailer are:

Wilmington on Fire

The Last Station (La Última Estación)

All She Wrote

Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone

The Best Independent Trailer Award is given to the independent trailer that stood out as original, or refreshing, or interesting (to me).  There were many very good candidates for this award, but these four were stand-outs. 

The nominees for Best Independent Trailer are:

The 9th

Through the Looking Glass




The Best Trailer Award is given to the trailer which truly teases, entertains and leaves the viewer wanting more.

The nominees for best trailer are:



The Hunger Games

Life of Pi

The Dark Knight Rises

Seven Psychopaths


The Worst Trailer Award is given to the trailer that left the viewer (me) annoyed.

The nominees for worst trailer are, and I could have added so many more:

Killing Them Softly

Taken 2

Red Dawn

Les Miserables

 Cloud Atlas


The Most Misleading Trailer goes to the trailer that misrepresented the film.
It applies to either a good trailer for a bad film or bad trailer for a good film.

The nominees for the most misleading trailer are:

The Cabin in the Woods

The Raven

Midnight in Paris

John Carter

Jeff Who Lives at Home

Hotel Transylvania


Bond: Everyone needs a hobby
Villain: What's yours?
Bond: Resurrection

 Django Unchained:
"kill white people... What's not to like?"
Spoken by Jamie Foxx

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
"I don't think we're hunting witches..."
Spoken by Jeremy Renner

Seven Psychopaths:
Gunman: Put your hands up!
Christoper Walken: No.
