Canadian Screen Award nominees announced

MommyXavier Dolan’s Mommy and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, both of which screened at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, lead the nominees in the film categories at the Canadian Screen Awards.

Mommy received an incredible 13 nominations, while Maps to the Stars garnered almost as many with 11 nods. Both are nominated in the Best Motion Picture, Best Direction and Best Screenplay categories.

Maps to the Stars achieved five nominations in performance categories, including Robert Pattinson and John Cusack for Supporting Actor; Julianne Moore (who just won a Golden Globe for her work in Still Alice) for Leading Actress; Mia Wasikowska (who had more onscreen time than Moore and whose character was the focal point of the film) for Supporting Actress and Evan Bird, who played Mia’s brother, for Leading Actor.

Mommy has three performance category nominations: Antoine Olivier Pilon for Leading Actor; Anne Dorval for Leading Actress and Suzanne Clément for Supporting Actress.
