Canadian Screen Awards 2021 – Night 4
by Staff Editors
(May 20, 2021 – Toronto, ON) It wouldn’t be fair to say Night 4 of the 2021 Canadian Screen Awards is more of the same, but in a way it is. Last night the focus was on television and the Creative Arts while tonight the shift is toward film and the Cinematic Arts.
There are 18 categories covering such diverse areas as Achievement in Visual Effects and Achievement in Cinematography and Achievement in Hair and Achievement in Make Up. We hazard a guess that most of the attention will be on the two performance categories, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.
Best Supporting Actress sees Felicity Huffman, pictured above (Tammy’s Always Dying) up against Mary Walsh (Happy Place), Agam Darshi (Funny Boy), Amy Groening (Bone Cage) and Micheline Lanctot (Le rire / Laughter).
Best Supporting Actor includes Stephen McHattie (Come to Daddy), Colm Feore (Sugar Daddy), Jesse LaVercombe (Violation), and then both Thamela Mpumlwana and Ronnie Rowe Jr competing against each for their work in Akilla’s Escape.
Other categories include Adapted Screenplay and Original Screenplay and Best First Feature Film, which includes Tracey Deer’s Beans, to name a few.
The Awards start at 7:00PM Eastern and are streamed live on Academy.ca, as well as on the Canadian Academy Twitter and YouTube channels.
