Canadian Screen Award Nominations

CanScreenAward_HeroEN_4C-1-300x224For those who don’t know, we have a new award in Canada this year.  Gone are the Genies, Canada’s film award, and gone is the Gemini, our top TV prize.  They’ve been mashed together into the all-encompassing, blandly-named Canadian Screen Awards.

The nominees were announced this morning.  I went through the list and tried grabbing any that related to animation.

Congrats to all the nominees!
