Orphan Black, Gabrielle And Call Me Fitz Win At Canadian Screen Awards


The 2014 Canadian Screen Awards showcased some of the finest the country has to offer, but when the smoke cleared it was Orphan Black that took home the most awards.  With 10 wins (best dramatic series and best actress in a TV drama for star Tatiana Maslany coming during the televised show last evening) the show came away as a dominating force.
