Okay, so just for the record: Canada is a separate country, a different country, not an annex of the United States. Sometimes we forget. Evidence: try getting ketchup-flavored chips here. Try getting good cheese curds here. Try getting decent poutine here. What’s poutine?! Get outta here. The point is, Canada has its own beautiful, special, and yes different culture, and it deserves celebrating! The Genie awards seek to recognize outstanding achievement in Canadian filmmaking, and many of the titles of these films are completely unknown to us here in the U.S. – sad, don’t you think?
This year’s nominees for the Genie in the Costume Design category are thus:
Now let’s get some All-seasoned chips and watch these at the Grove! Oh wait, this is America. The Grove is already booked with Bride Wars, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and New in Town. Dang! Not that there’s anything wrong with those movies, but dang! Let’s go down there with protest signs on our hockey sticks! Bring on the Genie contenders!
