Yesterday the Canadian Academy had their award ceremony and I wished I had watched the live stream as press claims Jacob Tremblay stole the show -again- and yes, I believe he deserved an Oscar nomination and even the Oscar for Best Actor! Unfortunately Hollywood decided different but then we have the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television fixing Hollywood's omission and (HUGE) mistake, and the cherry on top is that Tremblay won the Best Actor award!
Believe nobody was surprised when Irish and Canadian co production swept the film awards by winning nine (9) prizes, including Best Motion Picture, Best Lead Actress and Actor, Adapted Screenplay and Best Director. The other great film with two honors is none other than Brooklyn. Worth mentioning that both films will face each other again at the Irish Academy annual awards as both are Irish co productions, very curious to see which one will prevail in Ireland.
These are the winners.
