Movie Poster Award Nominees

The Hollywood Reporter announced the nominees for The 36th Annual Key Art Awards. This year there are 34 award categories, covering film posters, movie trailers, packaging, outdoor advertising, theatrical standees, print ads, home entertainment and more. New film advertising categories were added for horror, animation and documentary movie posters, along with the (long overdue) web site design category.

We retooled the awards this year to better reflect what movies are in theaters and where people are watching their advertising,” said Bob Israel, chairman of the Key Art Awards advisory board and executive producer of the show. “And we’re keeping an eye on the growing role of nontraditional media and how it’s being used for marketing.

For the second year in a row, film studio Lionsgate leads the field among Key Art Awards nominees, which just goes to show you that we are not the only ones who devote too much attention to the studio’s marketing efforts. The most popular film nominees are Little Miss Sunshine, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, and Borat, with each scoring seven nominations. (It’s good to see our own choice for the movie poster of the year earned a Key Art Award nomination in the Drama posters category.)

The Hollywood Report’s Key Art Awards ceremony will be held June 15 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, with actor-comedian Rob Corddry as host.

    Besides Hard Candy, my faves here are: Nacho Libre, Little Miss Sunshine, Madea’s Family Reunion, and Paris je t’aime. The Prestige poster gives me vertigo, and some of the Vendetta posters were well done, I recall. Actually, that Crank teaser is pretty good, now that I look at it.

    I’m not a big fan of the Renaissance or Running with Scissors posters – there’s not much to choose from in the animation category, granted, but I’ll have to agree to disagree with you in the comedy category.

    I’d certainly like to hear why you chose The Hills have Eyes in horror – I’m not sure what I’d choose, but it wouldn’t be that.
