  Here it is, folks! The long-awaited announcement of the 2016 Reelie award winners! As you may have noticed during the voting rounds, we did things a little bit differently this year.

Canadian TV is really coming into its own, especially in recent years, and as such, we have a powerhouse line-up of actors available to duke it out and be pronounced as your favourite!  There were so many possibilities, actually, that we had to narrow the list down a bit just to make it more manageable!…

We’re 5 Years Old Today!!

I just wanted to take a quick moment to recognize that this is the 5th anniversary of The Mind Reels (!).
