O'Hara won best female performance for her role as a spoiled former soap star in the CBC-TV comedy Schitt's Creek.

Meanwhile, Plummer was recognized for his turn as a Holocaust survivor bent on revenge in the feature film Remember.

The annual bash celebrates the best performances by members of the Toronto branch of the national performers' union, known as the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists.

Best voice performance went to Julie Lemieux for her work in the animated YTV show Numb Chucks, while Tantoo Cardinal presented an award of excellence to rising star Sarah Gadon, of Maps to the Stars.
