Still Standing and The Amazing Race Canada topline Canadian Screen Awards Night 1

CBC’s Still Standing, CTV’s The Amazing Race and Food Network Canada’s You Gotta Eat Here! were among the winners during a jam-packed Night 1 of the Canadian Screen Awards.

“As a former nominee who didn’t win, it truly is an honour to be nominated,” quipped Big Brother Canada‘s Arisa Cox, who hosted the evening. “And there are about 400 of you nominated. Still Standing is nominated tonight. It’s the title of a show and a comment on the state of the CBC.”

Fifty categories celebrating non-fiction television—including news, sports, factual, reality, lifestyle, talk and children’s programming—were handed out at Toronto’s Westin Harbour Castle during the non-televised event. Simcha Jacobovici received the Gordon Sinclair Award for Broadcast Journalism.
