Nominations were announced by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television on February 7.[2] Early coverage of the nominations highlighted the fact that the Best Picture category consisted entirely of French-language films from Quebec, with not a single English-language film named in the category.[3]


The awards in many of the technical and craft categories were presented in a series of advance Canadian Screen Week galas in the week before the main ceremony.[1] The gala for non-fiction programming was held on March 26,[4] the gala for creative fiction storytelling was held on March 27,[5] the gala for digital production was held on March 28,[6] and the gala for film craft categories was held in the afternoon of March 31.[7]

The broadcast ceremony had no overall host, with the Academy clarifying that the decision was made before the Academy Awards made the same announcement.[8] The ceremony did, however, included pretaped comedy segments from performers such as the casts of Baroness von Sketch Show and Letterkenny, as well as a short welcome introduction by actor Andrew Phung and drag queen Tynomi Banks.[9]

In film, The Great Darkened Days (La grande noirceur) was the year's big winner with five awards, although the Best Picture award went to A Colony (Une colonie).[10] In television, the drama series Anne with an E and Cardinal tied for the most wins, with seven awards each.[10]

The first recipients of the Academy's special awards were announced on January 15.[11]
