The Canadian Screen Awards was an unforgettable night as Canada basked in the silver-screen spotlight once again, honouring the best of the country's work on screens big and small. Author Margaret Atwood, whose novels The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace have been adapted into award-winning TV shows, was given the Board of Directors' Tribute for aiding in the growth of the Canadian media industry.
Anne, Schitt's Creek, Kim's Convenience and Orphan Black all received statues from the Academy on the TV side, including stars Tatiana Malsany, Catherine O'Hara and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee. Sally Hawkins and the film Maudie scored big in the motion picture categories. Rick Mercer Report was given the Academy Icon Award, while Peter Mansbridge took home the Lifetime Achievement Award.
