The Chronicle-Herald has a readable straightforward list of the big winners at last night’s Canadian Screen Awards, via CP, here. Yes, it was a big night for Schitt’s Creek (best comedy, comedy actor, comedy actress), Room (best film, film director/actor/actress, and adapted screenplay) and Orphan Black (best drama actor and actress) . . .
. . . but let’s also note that Yannick Bisson of Murdoch Mysteries won the Fan’s Choice Award (and “officially” put to rest rumours there would be no Season 10); Nick Serino was awarded best supporting actor for his role in Sleeping Giant — his first film ever (read the story at CBC News); Spin Master Entertainment’s PAW Patrol director Jamie Whitney won for for Best Direction in an Animated Program or Series (via PRNewswire), and three other TVO kids’ programs, plus its documentary Sugar Coated, also took home awards (via PRNewswire).
Meanwhile, in BC, The Maze Runner: The Death Cure is in production, telling the story of teens fighting a deadly virus in a world where most people have no defense against it — and the “immunes” are seriously resented by everyone else.
