2020 Canadian Screen Award winners to be announced in virtual presentations

From a media release:

The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, in partnership with CBC and CTV and with the support of Telefilm Canada and the Canada Media Fund, announced today a series of virtual presentations to reveal the winners of the 2020 Canadian Screen Awards, taking place Monday, May 25, 2020, through Thursday, May 28, 2020.

Following the cancellation of all Canadian Screen Week events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the Canadian Screen Awards Broadcast Gala, the Canadian Academy has worked to design a creative and sophisticated way to celebrate the nominees and announce the winners of the awards.

Drawing inspiration from documentary films, podcasts, and music videos, the Canadian Screen Award virtual presentations will consist of eight pre-taped, thematically distinct online shows made up entirely of footage from the nominated artists, narrated by a notable Canadian. Narrators will include Eric McCormack, Herbie Kuhn, and Lloyd Robertson among others who will be announced in the lead-up to the virtual presentations. Nominees are encouraged to gather virtually to watch the announcements together, and winners are likewise encouraged to upload footage of their “winning moments” and acceptance speeches onto the social platform of choice with the hashtag #CdnScreenAwardWinner.

The virtual presentations will be live-streamed on the Canadian Academy Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels, as well as academy.ca.

Nominations for the 2020 Canadian Screen Awards were announced in February in 144 film, television, and digital media categories. The CBC comedy Schitt’s Creek leads both television and overall nominations with 26 in total, a Canadian Screen Award record. Leading film categories is François Girard’s The Song of Names with nine nominations. A full list of all nominees can be found at academy.ca.

The 2020 Canadian Screen Awards virtual presentations are Presented by CBC and CTV and with the support of Telefilm Canada and the Canada Media Fund. The 2020 Canadian Screen Awards for Children’s & Youth Programming is Presented by Shaw Rocket Fund.
