    I think Mommy does very well. Happy to see Tu Dors Nicole, Maps to the Stars, and In Her Place contending as well.

    I find the TV side to generally be more interesting than the movie side. The wins for Orphan Black were great, and it’s not like Rick Mercer would ever lose the variety races (and nor should he). Our Man in Tehran got it’s deserved victory as well. Hopefully Orphan Black can win again on Sunday, and I will be hoping for a Mommy sweep of sorts, especially Pilon in lead. While I feel he’s supporting, any recognition for him is terrific.

    I believe that because it premiered in 2015, it wasn’t eligible for this year’s awards. Not sure if it will be remembered a year from now, but if the second season comes out at that time, it stands a chance.

    I hope so. I love the cast, but it may be a little parochial, in the best sense. I’ve always liked Levy’s writing style.

    It’s a farce of a race when a made in Toronto show doesn’t face the Pacific coast of Canada’s best series (Continuum, which has been nominated for 38 Leo awards over the last 2 years and won 14.).  The writing, directing and music categories were even more of a joke.  Continuum is up for only Best Drama Series at this eastern Canada (based in Toronto) awards show.  CSA’s are just honoring their own local product.  The tally for OB is 8 and counting.  Never has the deck been unfairly stacked in favor of one show since Hill Street Blues at the 1982 Emmys.

    It has Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara; of course it will be remembered!  It is not like anything else is really in contention.  Is Continuum really that bad?  Orphan Black got thirteen times as many nominations and the season sucked.  Granted, many aspects were still worthy (actress, cinematography, score).  I like how they attach episodes to the acting nominations.

    Evan Bird and Julianne Moore are leading, but Mia Wasikowska is supporting and Robert Pattinson is nominated?  Okay then.  Go Mommy!

    Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars’ sheriff Keith Mars):  Enough is enough with Orphan Black’s dominance:

    Remedy star Enrico Colantoni says the smash Space series Orphan Black has an unfair advantage at the Canadian Screen Awards.

    And he’s tired of seeing the BBC America-backed show dominate at the bash, which celebrates the best in homegrown film, TV and digital media.

    The sci-fi serial heads into this weekend’s televised ceremony with a leading eight trophies from a pre-show gala. This Sunday it competes for the title of Best Drama against Global’s Remedy, Bravo’s 19-2,Showcase’s Continuum and CTV’s Motive.

    Colantoni says Orphan Black should be in a separate category because it gets funding from BBC America.

    But the head of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television — which administers the awards — says the majority of Orphan Black’s budget comes from Canadian sources. Helga Stephenson adds that most Canadian shows get foreign funds to varying degrees.   Comic Andrea Martin hosts the Canadian Screen Awards from Toronto. It airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on CBC.

    On Friday, Colantoni complained that Orphan Black seemed to benefit from international bankrollers.

    “They’ve got BBC money, you know what I mean?” Colantoni said Friday while promoting the upcoming second season of his Global medical drama.

    “I love the show and I love (star) Tatiana (Maslany) and thank you for putting a big Canadian flag on it. But it’s like when Flashpoint was up against The Borgias every year. It’s just like, really?”

    A spokesman for CTV said Orphan Black is “virtually 100 per cent Canadian,” even though it does get BBC America support.

    “This is, sadly, about people not realizing it’s a Canadian show. It is,” said Scott Henderson.

    The Canadian Screen Awards have an international drama category, but this year it features just two nominees, both from History Channel: The Great Martian War and Vikings.

    Stephenson said the academy does its best to verify that contenders are indeed in the right category but added that it’s rare to find a show that is solely financed by Canadian sources.

    “I believe that all of the major Canadian shows have funding from around the world in different pieces in order to get made. It’s one of the paradoxes of Canadian production.”

    Did you read what you copied?  It raises the issue of Orphan Black having an advantage and then shoots it down.

    Very enjoyable watch.

    A Canadian treasure as host, diversity, women, comedy, a shout-out to Box Office champ (and nobody laughs or rolls their eyes), and a Sci-fi defeats fracking bull shit cops and hospitals shows!
