BlackBerry, Sort Of, Little Bird dominate Canadian Screen Award nominations

WNews 1 Min Read

Succession-style tech drama BlackBerry tops the nomination list for the Canadian Screen Awards’ film category — not just for this year, but for any year in the awards’ history.

BlackBerry pulled in 17 nods in categories including best motion picture, best direction, and best performance in a leading role (Jay Baruchel) and supporting role (Glenn Howerton). Those nominations pushed the Matt Johnson-directed movie — based on the rise and fall of the BlackBerry cellphone and its Canadian makers — past the previous record-holder, Brother, which went into last year’s ceremony with 14 nominations, eventually winning 12. 

In total, 216 feature, documentary and short films received nominations for this year’s Canadian Screen
