The Canadian Screen Awards for homegrown television and feature films is just over a week away—the gala broadcast hosted by Howie Mandel is Sunday, March 12, on CBC—and we want you to weigh in on some of the biggest categories!
This time we’re looking for you to weigh in on some of the key performance categories. Get voting and spread the word!
UPDATE: Thanks to a late surge in votes (A.J. Buckley called on Supernatural fans for support), Pure took top spot in the poll with 42 per cent of the vote. Second place went to Mary Kills People with 38 per cent; Cardinal placed third with 15 per cent. Thank you to everyone who participated and spread the word on our poll and look for more in the coming weeks!
It’s February. The time of the year when snow and cold temperatures cause us to get a little grumpy and burrow down a little deeper into our warm beds or pull those blankets a little tighter around us.
Luckily, we’ve got plenty of new Canadian television series to keep us entertained. No fewer than eight programs have bowed since January 1. Whether its tow truck drivers helping get traffic moving in Heavy Rescue: 401, small-town murder in Cardinal, doctor-assisted suicide in Mary Kills People, drug-running Mennonites in Pure or the struggles of motherhood via Workin’ Moms, there’s plenty to love this winter.
So, which two new Canadian series are your favourites so far? Let us know by voting below: select your choices and then click the Vote button below and to the right of Workin’ Moms. We’ll post the results in a few days so get voting and spread the word!
The results are in and Canada’s newest satire series, The Beaverton, is your No. 1 favourite television series of the fall. With just over 6,500 votes cast, The Comedy Network series captured 37 per cent of the vote.
In second place is HGTV’s Bryan Inc., starring Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, followed by Holmes + Holmes and Moving the McGillivrays. Rounding out the Top 5 was CBC’s Kim’s Convenience.
The Bachelorette Canada, Frontier, Airport: Below Zero, Shoot the Messenger and Travelers fill out the Top 10.
