Not only did Furious 7 kill it at the box office, but it’s trailers are also award worthy. The latest installment of the high speed car racing movie franchise has just picked up a Golden Trailer trophy for Best of Show. The awards ceremony was held this past Wednesday in Beverly Hills, and you can watch the winning footage below.
The trailer is titled "Family" for its emphasis on the family dynamic of Dom’s crew, and it’s three minutes in length. "The most important thing in life will always be the people right here, right now," Vin Diesel says. "That’s what’s real." Throughout the entire marketing campaign, the actor always made a point to bring the conversation back to family. According to him, his co-stars are part of his family. The film was especially emotional for him, given the tragic passing of Paul Walker, who has been active in the franchise since the very first installment, The Fast and The Furious. This "Family" Furious 7 trailer touches on this emotional note, while featuring a ton of the explosive action.

In Furious 7, the "sins of London" came back to haunt Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew. With Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) lying in a hospital bed, his "big, bad brother" Deckard (Jason Statham) was out for vengeance. This leads the team, including Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej (Ludacris), to join forces with "Mr. Nobody" (Kurt Russell) to execute one of the most over-the-top, borderline confusing, but fun-to-watch missions to stop the deadly terrorist.

In addition to Best of Show, which is essentially the "Best Movie Trailer" award, Furious 7 also picked up wins for Best Action, the GTA 16 & Rentrak Best Opening Weekend Award and Best Action TV Spot. Other trailers that scored big wins during the festivities were Ted 2's "Civil Rights: Trailer 2," winning Best Comedy; Selma's "The People" trailer, winning Best Drama; Guardians of the Galaxy's "Outlaws," winning Best Music; Big Hero 6's "Find Your Way," winning Best Animation/Family; and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1's "Courage of One," winning the oddly specific category of Best Fantasy Adventure. You can see the entire list of winners over at The Hollywood Reporter.

These wins are the latest in a long line of accomplishments for Furious 7. It topped the box office during its opening, making it the highest-grossing opening over a three-day period, as well as the highest-grossing film of the franchise. Coupled with overseas movie ticket sales, Furious 7 quickly surpassed the $1 billion milestone, making it the 20th film to do so. It currently stands in fourth place of the highest-grossing films of all time, ahead of Disney's Frozen and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, but behind Marvel's The Avengers.
