The Canadian Screen Awards Nominations Revealed!

Xavier Dolan continues his winning ways with 13 Canadian Screen Awards nominations for Mommy, a dazzling story of an emotionally volatile boy and his weary mother that blasted out of the gate at Cannes last spring to win the Jury Prize. It has figured consistency in critics’ polls and today it swept Canada’s “Oscar” nominations. It’s the 26 year filmmaker’s seventh film.


Canada’s film elder statesman David Cronenberg was close by with 11 nominations for his Hollywood industry satire Maps to the Stars including Best Actress for Julianne Moore and Best Actor for Robert Pattinson and John Cusack. Albert Shin’s Her Place won seven nominations, Stéphane Lafleur’s Tu Dors Nicole and Martin Talbot’s Henri Henri each won six.
