The Canadian Screen Awards

Posted on Updated on

The show is playing now, or not. From Twitter, it seems to be that it was taped a couple of hours ago in Ontario time and being re-aired for us westerners. Come on, guys. I’m getting spoilers from every corner of my social networking. Speaking of which, I’m live-tweeting the awards show, even thought it’s not live anymore. It’s Sunday! I totally would have watched it during supper.

Also, I love David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars”. Loved it. I’ve been careful so far not to see yet whether it has won. Incidentally, Cronenberg was also nominated for a Bram Stoker award for his first horror novel. A true genre artist.

Speaking of genre nerdiness, I’m savouring half a bottle of an official Game Of Thrones beer from Brewery Ommegang, called Valar Morghulis. Maybe it’s not appropriate to drink something based on an American show while watching and live-tweeting an awards show for Canadian film and television but I don’t care. This stuff is yummy.

It looks like Orphan Black and its star Tatiana Maslany won a whole lot of these awards. I look forward to hearing their speeches. Speaking of which, I read a great post from an Orphan Black fan this morning. The fan’s name on Facebook is Sybil Sybil Sybil and I hope she’s okay with quoting her [WARNING! HERE BE SPOILERS!]

“Remember when Tatiana Maslany saw Tatiana Maslany jump in front of a train so Tatiana Maslany took over Tatiana Maslany’s identity then Tatiana Maslany met with Tatiana Maslany to get a briefcase but Tatiana Maslany killed Tatiana Maslany then Tatiana Maslany hunted down Tatiana Maslany to a soccer field and Tatiana Maslany told Tatiana Maslany to leave then Tatiana Maslany and Tatiana Maslany gathered at Tatiana Maslany’s suburban home to tell Tatiana Maslany that Tatiana Maslany was killing Tatiana Maslany and that they were clones then Tatiana Maslany worked for dyad and Tatiana Maslany got sick with something that Tatiana Maslany also had but Tatiana Maslany died from it so Tatiana Maslany had to get bone marrow from Tatiana Maslany’s daughter but then Tatiana Maslany broke the bone marrow that was used to cure Tatiana Maslany and so Tatiana Maslany shot a pencil into Tatiana Maslany’s eye?”

Try saying that sentence in one breath…
