Sci-fi series Orphan Black
, TV comedy Less Than Kind
and Denis Villeneuve's psychological thriller Enemy
are among the top nominees for the Canadian Screen Awards.
Organizers unveiled film, television and digital media contenders in
dozens of categories at a packed press event in Toronto today.
“This was a year marked by a record-breaking number of submissions,
reflecting a robust level of activity in the screen-based industries in
Canada, which we will celebrate during Canadian Screen Week from March
3-9," said Martin Katz, chair of the Academy of Canadian Cinema and
Orphan Black is among the front-runners, picking up 14
nominations overall, including best dramatic series and lead actress in a
continuing dramatic role for Tatiana Maslany. Regina-born Maslany, who
was also a Golden Globe nominee for her Orphan Black role, earned a second lead actress nod in the CSA film categories for Cas & Dylan.
