The Amazing Race Canada, Still Standing and Rise win at Night 1 of the Canadian Screen Awards

Still Standing, The Amazing Race Canada, Mayday, Rise and CTV National News with Lisa LaFlamme were among the winners during Night 1 of the non-televised portion of the Canadian Screen Awards.

Miguel Rivas, of The Comedy Network’s The Beaverton, served as host for the evening, poking fun at The National‘s four-person panel and holding mock auditions for a co-host. Among the finalists? Chef Matty Matheson, The Social‘s Lainey Lui and Peter Mansbridge. One of the most emotional moments of the night followed Viceland’s Rise being awarded Best Documentary Program. Series producer Michelle Latimer tearfully championed Indigenous Peoples and referenced the effects colonization has had on First Nations people in Canada and around the world.
