The Regina-born, Toronto-based actor won a Canadian Screen Award for Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for The Other Half.

“Maslany’s Emily is an artist with severe bipolar disorder, a grandstanding role if ever there was one, but not in this impressive young actor’s hands,” wrote the Straight‘s Adrian Mack last November.

She also won the Canadian Screen Award for Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role for Orphan Black. The program won as Best Dramatic Series.

The Candy for Best Motion Picture went to Xavier Dolan’s It’s Only the End of the World/Juste La Fin du Monde.

The Quebec wunderkind also won for Achievement in Direction.

Letterkenny took home the Canadian Screen Award for Best Comedy Series.

Stephan James picked up the Candy for Performance by an Actor in a Dramatic Role. It was for his performance as sprinter Jesse Owens in Race.

Adrian Holmes won for Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role for 19-2.
