Bow down to the king of Wakanda, for Black Panther has just scored another accolade. Not only did it smash the box office to pieces, racking in $1.3 billion worldwide, but it just won the most coveted prize at the Golden Trailer Awards: Best of Show.
The 19th iteration of the GTAs, an award ceremony to honor the best trailers across the industry (blockbusters, indies, documentaries, etc), took place in Los Angeles on Thursday night. Black Panther‘s “Crown” trailer, a two-minute visual treat that got audiences pumped ahead of the film’s blockbuster opening, scooped the top prize. If you need a reminder, you can rewatch the trailer above.
Alongside Best of Show, Black Panther took home three other trophies: Best Action, Best Action TV Spot, and Best Music TV Spot.
Other films recognized included Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, which won Best Animation/Family and Best Motion Poster, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird for Best Comedy and Best Independent TV Spot, and John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place for Best Horror and Best Horror TV Spot. In TV, Stranger Things and Westworld took home three awards each for their season two trailers.
