31st Genie Award Nominations

The 31st Genie Awards nominations were announced on Wednesday February 2, 2011 and Barney's Version leads the nominations with 11 nods including best motion picture, achievement in direction, nominations in all acting categories. Next up we have Incendies with 10 nominations and this comes hot off the heels of Incendies Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language film.

One of the things I always look forward to with the Genie nominations is getting to sink into some French Canadian titles as we only get a handful released here in Toronto each year on top of festival runs and in 2010 we did see Les amours imaginaires / Heartbeats and Les sept jours du Talion / 7 Days on big screens, but it's time to track down 10 1/2 (out on DVD Feb 15, 2011), Piché: entre ciel et terre / Piché: The Landing of a Man and Route 132.

I'm thrilled to see that many titles that made the Movie Moxie Perfect List of 2010 are nominees including The Trotsky, Trigger, Defendor, Grown Up Movie Star and The Wild Hunt. In fact I ranked The Wild Hunt and Grown Up Movie Star at #4 and #5 overall for the entire year. Looking back, 2010 was a great year for Canadian film.

One of the biggest surprizes on the list is Resident Evil: Afterlife, when I went to see it back in September 2010 the theatre insisted it was not Canadian and on IMDB it's currently listed (Feb 3, 2011) as a Germany/France/UK co-production. Resident Evil: Afterlife has 5 Genie nominations and also winner of the Golden Reel Award, which goes to the Canadian film that has earned the highest domestic box office and it's total Canadian box office in 2010 was $7,026,559.

Reviews of Genie Nominated Films: Incendies, High Life, Splice, The Trotsky, Trigger, Defendor, Grown Up Movie Star, The Wild Hunt, Year of the Carnivore and Leave Them Laughing.
