Descriptions provided by the nominating studio:

A Quiet Place Part II — 28-Game Concacaf Gold Cup Tour Promotion and Giveaways (Paramount)

A Quiet Place Part II makes noise at the Concacaf Gold Cup. A 28 game integration kicked off across nine U.S. cities to celebrate the home entertainment release of A Quiet Place Part II. The month-long program covered in-game stadium billboards, lucky row fan giveaways and live audio reads throughout the sold out tournament. The partnership was capped off with a custom social integration at the Gold Cup Final in Las Vegas. No humans were harmed … luckily.


The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run — VRBO Surf and Turf Landmark Activation (Paramount)

VRBO & Paramount Home Entertainment partnered for a surf-and-turf landmark activation: Welcome to the Water Tower inspired by the world of SpongeBob SquarePants!

Ahoy! Where would a land-loving SpongeBob SquarePants stay? In a pineapple over the sea of course. Southern California’s historic Water Tower was transformed into an awesomely over-the-top oasis of under-the-sea-themed fun celebrating the release of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.


Venom: Let There Be Carnage — Christmas Ads/Romcom Trailer/Animated Stickers (Sony Pictures)

The Venom home entertainment marketing campaign was a multi-pronged 360 campaign that was able to capture the spirit and energy of Venom: Let There Be Carnage for the home viewing audience. A multi-million dollar media campaign timed to the holiday season called for breakthrough television spot creative that highlighted the fun, action and adventure using perfectly themed footage and music to elevate the Christmas feel. The digital and social creative was able to harness the unique voice of Venom.  Some examples are the Venom Rom-com Trailer, a spoof of the traditional romcom w/ a Venom twist that was a favorite among comic book fans and general audiences alike. The Venom Yule Log, again themed to the holiday release timing, audiences were treated to 10 hours of fireside Venom fun with funny quotes and lines from Venom himself. To really get virality going for the home entertainment window, Sony created Venom/Carnage animated stickers which kept the fun of their rivalry while carrying our just in time for a Christmas message.
