This Just In: Andrea Martin Genies News

Genies host George Stroumboulopoulos just tweeted that Andrea Martin, slated to co-host, won't be able to be with him onstage at tomorrow night's 32nd Annual Genie Awards Broadcast on CBC TV (and streaming live here on CBC Live). 


More George? And he's #goingnaked? I am SO okay with that. (Although I heard he was wearing Hugo Boss). 

Andrea did release a brief statement, however, that indicates we will still get to see the funny lady in tomorrow night's show:


"I'm so disappointed that I can't co-host the Genies with my friend George Stroumboulopoulos as planned. I was in Toronto, in my fabulous Lucian Matis gown, rehearsing... and I got a call about a prior work commitment that has been rescheduled and that I am obligated to show up for. You'll still see me in the show, and I will be there in spirit to support all the extraordinary artists in the Canadian film industry who we will be honouring and celebrating tomorrow night."


We'll be looking forward to updates on Andrea's project over the coming months, but first, we're delivering all the biggest stars at tomorrow's Genie Awards live streaming right here on CBC Live, starting at 4:30 pm with our Red Carpet Show, hosted by Stacey McKenzie and Lauren Hammersley.
