From a media release:
The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television (the Canadian Academy) announced today the return of the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards show, which will broadcast on CBC and CBC Gem on Sunday, April 10 at 8:00 PM (9:00 PM AT / 9:30 PM NT), and the continuation of virtual events for the remainder of Canadian Screen Week 2022, taking place from Monday, April 4, 2022, to Sunday, April 10, 2022. The nominees for the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards will be announced on Tuesday, February 15 at 7:00 AM ET.
For the past ten years, the Canadian Screen Awards have brought together Canada’s best and brightest film, television, and digital media talents to honour achievements in their crafts, and the 2022 edition is sure to be the most exciting and innovative yet. Featuring a selection of prominent categories and tributes to this year’s Special Award recipients, the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards broadcast show will be a star-powered, creatively curated treat for fans of our homegrown entertainment, highlighting Canadian content and its notable moments that made us laugh, cry, and reflect over the past year.
In collaboration with powerhouse creative producers Makers, the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards broadcast show will be an hour-long pre-taped studio production featuring the talents of the multi-award-winning sketch comedy troupe TallBoyz (Guled Abdi, Vance Banzo, Tim Blair, and Franco Nguyen). This promises to be an award show like you’ve never seen before: a true celebration of all things Canadian entertainment, with an eclectic variety of artists coming together for the love of storytelling and a deep appreciation for the power of our film, television, and digital media and everyone who enjoys it.
In an effort to prioritize the health and safety of all nominees, attendees, and Canadian Academy staff, the remainder of the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards will be presented virtually during Canadian Screen Week 2022 due to pandemic-related uncertainties. Split by genre, each of these nine virtual shows will feature a host and live acceptance speeches, allowing us to once again hear directly from the week’s big winners. Nominees and their peers are encouraged to tune in online via Academy.ca livestream — as well as the Canadian Academy Twitter and YouTube channels — to celebrate the momentous accomplishments of our Canadian creators from Monday, April 4, 2022 through Friday, April 8, 2022.
