Genie Nominations!!!

Barney's Version
The Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television announced the nominations for the 31st annual Genie Awards this morning. In the awards honoring the best in Canadian film, Barney's Version leads with eleven nods, followed closely by Incendies with ten. Some of the other Best Picture nominees are head scratchers...Les amours imaginaires is clearly an apology to Xavier Dolan for last year's massive snub of I Killed My Mother. Best Actress is probably the strongest of the categories: great choices, although I haven't seen Grown Up Movie Star... Two of the Best Actress nominees are from Trigger, my favourite Canadian film of the year, which also received nods for editing and score.

UPDATED the full list of nominees via a spectacular cut and paste job from the Press Release of nominees . I've looked them over more thoroughly now that I have a day off from school, and I've noticed some good/not so good things about the nods.
Good: -Recognition of Splice, especially the technical work!
         -2 nods for Year of the Carnivore: yay Sook-Yin Lee!
         -3 nods for Defendor, including Best Original Screenplay.
Not so good: 
        -Rosamund Pike popping up as a lead actress and not in the supporting category where I hoped she would. This means that I can't cheer for both her and Tracy Wright! Oh, well. Best of luck to Minnie Driver for Best Supporting actress, then!
        -That original song category..."Standing Alongside Gone" by Brendan Canning (from Trigger) should have taken the gold, but it isn't even on the list. Neither are any of the goofily patriotic songs from Score: A Hockey Musical... shame!
       -Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie was snubbed in the Best Documentary Category. How?
      -And NOTHING for Chloe???

Oh, well - a lot of good movies are recognized for a particularly good year. Huzzah!
The Genies will be awarded March 10 in Ottawa...who can get me tickets???
