While some of the big awards won’t be handed out until this Sunday, the Canadian Screen Awards got an early start on handing out statues. Orphan Black was the top winner, claiming 8 trophies so far, and CBC is the top broadcaster with 18.
Orphan Black leads the CSA nominations this year, tied with Xavier Dolan’s film Mommy with 13. The wins so far include best casting, directing and writing as well as a supporting actor trophy for Jordan Gavaris. We’ll have to wait until Sunday night to see if Tatiana Maslany repeats for Best Actress.
