(May 19, 2021 – Toronto, ON) While the format for tonight’s round of awards from the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television will be constrained by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the scope expands and the 30 categories in the Creative Arts and Performance area cover a lot of important talent up for a Canadian Screen Award.
In no particular order, Andrew Phung, Chris Elliott, Noah Reid, Ryan Belleville and Peter Keleghan are all nominated in the Best Supporting Actor, Comedy category, while Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Karen Robinson, Sarah McVie and Juno Rinaldi are the nominees in the Best Supporting Actress, Comedy category.
There are awards for Best Performance, Sketch Comedy and Best Direction Variety or Sketch Comedy and Best Direction Comedy. Then there’s Best Sound, Best Music, Best Make-up, Best Hair. The names being nominated may not be household names, but the shows they are associated with are some of the best on television.
