Degrassi has a chance to continue its domination of the Children’s category at the Canadian Screen Awards, as it was announced they’ve been nominated for 3 more awards this year.
The show’s 3 nominations include:
Degrassi – Best Children’s or Youth Fiction Program or Series
Eleanor Lindo – Best Direction in a Children’s or Youth Program or Series
Alejandro Alcoba – Best Writing in a Children’s or Youth Program
Congratulations to the entire Degrassi team for their continued hard work and nominations!!
It’s an understatement to say Degrassi’s had a stranglehold on the Children’s category for the past several years. Degrassi’s won Best Series and Direction for the past 4 years and Best Writing and Performance for the past 3. They won 14 awards out of 19 total nominations from 2013-2016, so we’re expecting them to add another shelf to their awards cabinet at Epitome in 2017.
A few former Degrassians were also nominated for CSAs this year…
*Stephan James (Julian) was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for his movie, Race
*Landon Liboiron (Declan Coyne) was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role for Frontier
*Evan Williams (Kelly Ashoona) was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Series for Versailles
