Sue and I had a fantastic time at the Canadian Screen Awards last year, bringing out unique style and enthusiasm with us as we tweeted, posted pics, and just had a wonderful time in general hob-knobbing with a bevy of amazing folks. We were very delighted that when award season rolled around again, we learned that they would be happy to have us back again!
And this time, having checked our schedules, we plan to cover as much of it as we can, get some fun and candid photos, maybe some interviews, and hopefully make some new friends.
It was an exciting year in the realm of Canadian Film and Television, and there are a lot of familiar names amongst the nominees (Tatiana Maslany should win EVERYTHING!) and the presenters, (what are the odds we can grab a photo op with Kiefer Sutherland?). Hosted by the fantastic comedienne, Andrea Martin the nominees are filled with familiar names and faces, Cronenberg, Egoyan, Bruce Greenwood (man, I hope he’s there and we can steal a moment of his time!!), Tatiana Maslany (TAT!), Adam Korson (DUDE!), the lovely Carrie-Lynn Neales (sigh), Megan Follows (!!), Dave Foley (met him once… amazing!), Jordan Gavaris (great guy!!!), Paul Amos (YES!!!), Ali Liebert (how I adore this woman!), Naomi Snieckus (one of the funniest women I have ever met!), the talented Richard Harmon (is there anything this actor can’t do?)…. and oh so many others!!!! We’re looking forward to catching up with our friends and the Academy, the CBC and NFB!! It’s going to be an amazing week!
And this is only the tip of the iceberg, there are so many people that Sue and I are looking forward to seeing, catching up with, stealing a moment or two with, and just doing our best to bring you our usual relaxed, irreverent, and disarming approach to chatting with the stars.
There’s a hashtag to follow on Twitter, #Cdnscreen15, Sue (@marajade29sm) and I (@mindreels) will be tweeting all week, starting Monday at the Nominees Reception, the two galas, and the broadcast. It’s going to be a lot of fun, a lot of laughs, and no doubt, a lot of goofy selfies with people we love! And make sure you tweet back at us, share your favorite pictures, and talk about the incredibly talented people being honored this week.
Make sure you watch the broadcast next Sunday night, March 1, starting at 8pm on the CBC!
