  1. X Company belongs in the best drama series list. Of all the Canadian series I watch, I think it was the best last year., followed by Orphan Black and Vikings, the latter of which is now interestingly not in the international category anymore. The comedy category is really strong too this year but I have to give my nod to Kim’s Convenience which is a refreshingly funny and original multi generational comedy with well-drawn characters.

  2. You can probably thank VIKINGS for Xco not making the cut.
    It’s ludicrous to make them compete when Vikings has multiple times the budget and is created and visioned by a Brit. The Brits don’t even do it with the BAFTAS. That’s where we got the “Best International Series” idea in the first place. The Academy of Canadian Cinema & TV spat in the face of Canadian creators this year, after the problem had been fixed. I guess lobbying works.
