Canadian Screen Awards Nominees 2015: 'Orphan Black,' Xavier Dolan's 'Mommy' Lead The Pack

January 13th, 2015 - HuffPost Canada TV

Canadian entertainment has a lot to be proud of this year.

The Canadian Screen Awards nominees for the past year were announced at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, with TV show "Orphan Black" and Xavier Dolan's film "Mommy" amassing many of the nods. CSA nominations in 128 categories (24 film, 97 in television and 7 in digital media) were revealed.

The Academy Of Canadian Cinema And Television (ACCT) was also pleased to showcase their new website, FanZone, launched at the same time as the nominee announcement. The site echoes the Academy’s push on all platforms to reach the Canadian public through excellent film, television and digital media. Fans can vote on the site for the Fans' Choice Award -- Canada's Screen Star of 2015. The winner will be announced at the CSA ceremony.

"Today we are very proud to reveal the nominees for the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards,” said Helga Stephenson, CEO, Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television. "2014 was an exceptionally competitive year for Canadian film, television & digital media. The Academy received a record number of Canadian Screen Awards submissions, which is also a good sign for the industry."

"19-2" star Jared Keeso and "Strange Empire" actress Cara Gee presented the nominations; the full list of major film and TV categories/nominees is below.

The Canadian Screen Awards ceremony takes place on Sunday, March 1 at 8 p.m. ET/8:30 NT on CBC. It will be hosted by Andrea Martin.
