|Julianne Moore in Maps to the Stars|
The other notable Canuck win went to Julianne Moore for her acclaimed performance in David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars. Cronenberg's film, a biting Hollywood satire, drew some of the best reviews for the director since 2005's A History of Violence. Moore wasn't on hand to collect the prize, but her win could give the controversial film some extra steam in the months too come. Maps to the Stars probably won't see the same odds of making a Cannes/Oscars crossover that fellow winners Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher) and Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner) could see, but next year's Canadian Screen Awards could be in for quite the Best Actress smackdown between Moore and Mommy's Anne Dorval.
