34th Annual Key Art Awards Tonight 

Tonight the Kodak Theater (home of the Academy Awards Ceremonies) will be hosting the 34th Key Art Awards ceremonies. The awards are presented by the Hollywood Reporter to honor achievement in movie marketing and advertising for the previous year.

The Incredibles racked up 12 nominations, the most of any nominee. The complete list of nominees in the 29 categories can be found here. The categories fall under the headings of Print (posters, print ads, billboards and standees), Audiovisual (trailers, tv ads), Home Entertainment Categories (packaging, ads) and Other Categories (such as websites, motion graphics and best line).

This is an important event for film geeks of all flavors. A whole evening of trailers, posters, and movie-related stuff!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the list of winners!

UPDATE (5/6/05): The Incredibles received the most awards, with six (out of seven nominations). Ray was chosen Best In Show for print for its poster, and Sideways received Best In Show for audiovisual for one of its trailers. More details here. And yes, Saw received three awards for posters. I'm still not going to watch it.
