The film received two Genie Award nominations at the 8th Genie Awards in 1987, for Best Cinematography (René Verzier) and Best Original Song ("Cold As Ice" by Peter Pringle and Kevin Hunter).[4] A minor controversy resulted when the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television mistakenly omitted "Cold As Ice" from the first ballots sent out to Academy voters.[5]
