Orphan Black‘s Kevin Hanchard, Murdoch Mysteries – A Merry Murdoch Christmas, Slasher‘s Wendy Crewson, Schitt’s Creek‘s Emily Hampshire, Baroness Von Sketch Show and Kim’s Convenience‘s Andrew Phung were among the winners in the Creative Fiction categories during Night 2 of the Canadian Screen Awards.
Hosted by Seán Cullen, the non-televised celebration honoured 42 categories in the guest performance, writing, directing, photography, editing, production design, visual effects, sound, limited, variety and sketch comedy.
“We celebrate all of you in the creative industry,” Cullen said at the beginning of the night. “You are the Steve Bannon of this industry.” He then mentioned Canada’s 150th anniversary before poking fun at Murdoch Mysteries. “The only mystery about Murdoch Mysteries is how to stop yourself from being lost in Yannick Bisson’s eyes,” he said.
“I want to thank Pete Mitchell,” Murdoch Mysteries executive producer Christina Jennings said after A Merry Murdoch Christmas was named Best TV Movie. “He has been running Murdoch Mysteries for six seasons and we are now at 150 hours of television.”
