Canadian Television has come along way from its humble beginnings. With a multitude of notable productions, 2014 seems to be the breakout year for Canadian TV and as such, the Canadian Entertainment Industry has alot to be proud of.

The Nominees for the Canadian Screen Awards were announced at the Tiff Bell Lightbox, with nominations in 128 categories (24 in film, 97 in television, and 7 in digital media). Xavier Dolan’s film “Mommy” and Graeme Mason and John Fawcett’s Sci-Fi TV show, “Orphan Black” snagged most of the nods.

“Today we are very proud to reveal the nominees for the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards,” said Helga Stephenson, CEO, Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television. “2014 was an exceptionally competitive year for Canadian film, television & digital media. The Academy received a record number of Canadian Screen Awards submissions, which is also a good sign for the industry.”

Following the reading of the nominees, a major announcement was revealed. This year marked the launch of the interactive website FanZone by The Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television (ACCT). The site echoes the Academy’s push on all platforms to reach the Canadian public through excellent film, television and digital media. Fans can vote on the site for the Fans’ Choice Award — Canada’s Screen Star of 2015. The winner will be announced during the ceremony
