    Nominations for the Canadian Screen Awards (Canadian equivalent of the Emmys and Oscars) came out today, although you will not hear about it from Paul, as Orphan Black led with fourteen nominations, while Continuum got just three.  Tatiana Maslany even scored an additional film nomination!  Possibly also of interest to this forum is that Semi Chellas is picking up an honorary award.

    Eastern Canada bias. The top 2 votegetters at last June’s Leo nominations (Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Foundation of British Columbia) were Continuum and a CBC series called Arctic Air.  Both filmed in BC.  Between them, 30 nominations (16 Continuum, 14 Arctic Air). Today between them?  3.  I’d say that’s a pretty naked, rip-roaring bias against western Canada TV productions, yes?  Shows filmed in Toronto in particular got the most love (Rookie Blue’s 9 nominations as exhibit B). The Screenies press conference today only exposed just how stacked the deck is against Vancouver-based TV shows.  Did the voters even watch Second Opinion or Second Time, the two best performances of Nichols’ career?  And two of the best from this past season as a whole?  No.

    Yeah, thedemonhog, you should be outraged! 

    Those shows from British Columbia are getting shafted.

    Even when you present people with facts, they scoff and laugh at them. I blame Faux News for this trend. Continuum got 2 nominations (Supporting Actress and Visual Effects), BTW.  If you’re gonna rub stuff in, ‘hog, at least get the damn numbers *right*..

    Jesus Christ, eastern Canada bias? I do not know that I have ever heard of something so stupid. And way to miss their nomination for their online tie-ins.

    Look!  A press release!

    Showcase’s Canadian original
    action-drama Continuum returns this March as announced today by
    series stars Rachel Nichols and Victor Webster in a video released to
    fans via @showcasedotca. The critically acclaimed drama, nominated
    for three 2014 Canadian Screen Awards, stars Nichols as Kiera Cameron, a policewoman from 2077 who finds herself
    trapped in present-day Vancouver. Featuring 13 hour-long episodes,
    the third season of Continuum premieres on Sunday, March 16 at 9 p.m.
    ET/PT exclusively on Showcase.

    “Continuum is one of Showcase’s
    biggest successes and it’s easy to see why,” said Barbara
    Williams, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media. “The
    series features a strong ensemble cast, stellar writing and a plot
    rich in mythology, suspense, politics and emotional drama. Beyond the
    trappings of a futuristic action-drama, Continuum is also the story
    of a woman burdened with the choice of saving the future or going
    home to her family. We’re excited to bring another season of this
    award-winning series to Showcase, where it will continue to captivate
    new and returning fans.”

    In season three, Kiera faces the immediate consequences of Alec Sadler’s shocking betrayal. Captured in the season
    two finale by the Freelancers, a group fulfilling their self-assigned
    task of collecting and incarcerating time travelers in order to
    protect history’s timeline, Kiera must forge new alliances to escape,
    while also contending with a newly strategic Liber8 organization and
    a growing darkness in her police partner Carlos Fonnegra. Ultimately, Kiera is faced with
    heart-wrenching decisions as she discovers that the world she came
    from is not as it seemed.

    You may want to see what it’s like living in the west. Eastern bias this, eastern bias that, Toronto this, Montreal that. Sheesh. Then there’s Ontario vs Quebec, Maritime isolation, and to the far north, everywhere else is the “mainland”.

    Gotta try to catch another eppy of Continuum….

    Best Female Performance in a 2013 Science Fiction Television Episode; Rachel Nichols, defending champion, whose shattering, career-defining turn in the episode Second Opinion was selected, will try and fend off Amy Acker and Taraji P. Henson (Person of Interest, for God Mode and 2 Pi R, respectively), Trenna Keating (Defiance, The Bride Wore Black), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black, Variations Under Domestication), Billie Piper (Doctor Who’s The Day of the Doctor) and Felicia Day (Supernatural, Pac-Man).
