Coming Soon To A Screen Near You: The Canadian Screen Awards
March 7, 2014

The second annual Canadian Screen Awards Gala is going down this Sunday live on CBC at 8 p.m., and the days leading up to it have been dubbed Canadian Screen Week, a celebration of the best in Canadian film, TV and digital media.

Two sets of awards were given out earlier this week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the biggest ones will be handed out at Sunday night's gala.

Throughout the week, we've been airing interviews with guests who are up for awards or being recognized for their achievements. But one week of shows isn't enough to contain all of the past red chair guests who have been nominated this year — so here's a full rundown.

Colm Feore received the Earle Grey Award for Acting earlier this week:

Jake Gyllenhaal is up for Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for Enemy, which is also up for Best Motion Picture:

And here's Denis Villeneuve, Enemy's director (the film comes out March 14):

Last night on the show, George spoke with Michael Dowse, who's nominated for Achievement in Directing for The F Word, which is also up for Best Motion Picture:

Another F Word nominee for you: Daniel Radcliffe, who's nominated for Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role:

Xavier Dolan's film Tom at the Farm is up for Best Motion Picutre, and Dolan himself is nominated for both Achievement in Directing and Adapted Screenplay:

Matt Johnson, director of the Kevin Smith-endorsed bullying film The Dirties, is nominated with Evan Morgan for Achievement in Editing:

Gerry Dee is nominated for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for playing the title character in Mr. D, which is itself up for Best Comedy Series:

Blackstone is up for Best Dramatic Series, and show creator Ron E. Scott was also nominated for Best Writing in a Dramatic Series for the episode "Reap What You Sow" (the latter award went to Orphan Black on Wednesday):

Finally, a couple of upcoming guests got nods as well: Brendan Gleeson is up for Best Actor for his role in The Grand Seduction, which is out this summer, and Tatiana Maslany is up for Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Series for Orphan Black.

To see who takes home the hardware, tune into the Canadian Screen Awards, broadcast live on Sunday, March 9 at 8 p.m. on CBC (and look out for George, who'll be presenting the Achievement in Directing award).


To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
