The Canadian Screen Awards felt more like the Tatiana Maslany/”Orphan Black” Awards — but film dramas “It’s Only the End of the World” and “Race” also did well.
Tatiana Maslany might have wished she really could clone herself Sunday night, as she won Best Actress awards for both her TV and film work at the Canadian Screen Awards, a.k.a. the Candys.
The popular actress, a previous winner several times over, had to make almost back-to-back trips up to the Sony Centre stage: first to receive the lead actress award for The Other Half, a romantic film drama few people saw.
That was followed minutes later by the lead actress prize for playing multiple clone characters on Orphan Black, a sci-fi TV drama that many people have seen and which had a leading 14 Candy nominations overall — it garnered nine wins in all, including Best Dramatic Series. The show is currently shooting its fifth and final season.
