'Enemy' Leads Canadian Screen Awards Nominations

Jake Gyllenhaal and Melanie Laurent in Enemy
The nominations for the second annual Canadian Screen Awards were announced today via live stream. Orphan Black leads the television awards with fourteen nominations, followed by Less than Kind with twelve. Enemy scores ten nominations and leads the awards, followed by Tom at the Farm with eight. Major snubs were Rhymes for Young Ghouls, which managed only one nomination (Best Actress) despite the fact that it was one of the most acclaimed, original, and significant Canadian films of 2013. Canada's Oscar pick Gabrielle did respectably with six nominations, although director/screenwriter Louise Archambault was bizarrely passed over. This year's nominations are somewhat surprising, since most of the leading contenders--Enemy, Tom at the Farm, The F-Word, Triptych, The Grand Seduction, and Maina--have not yet had a theatrical release. This means that fans and the like have had no opportunity to see the film unless they attended a festival, nor are they likely to be able to see many of these films in the weeks leading up to the awards. Some of 2013's most acclaimed films, which were noted by critics and the audiences who saw them, were shut out entirely: Vic + Flo Saw a Bear, Sarah Prefers to Run, The Manor, and TIFF winner When Jews Were Funny. It's an odd mix, but a sign that there could be a lot to look forward to in the months ahead.
