Romeos and Juliets, the CBC documentary about the creation of Romeo and Juliet by Alexei Ratmansky for The National Ballet of Canada, is nominated for FOUR Canadian Screen Awards! Congratulations to Principal Dancer Guillaume Côté and First Soloist Elena Lobsanova, who are up for Best Performance in a Performing Arts Program. The documentary also received nominations for Best Performing Arts Program and Best Direction in a Performing Arts Program by Moze Mossanen.
The new Canadian Screen Awards honour achievement in both Canadian television and film, replacing the previously separate Gemini and Genie Awards.
I won tickets to the Geminis from writing out a paragraph about my love for degrassi, and a question that I would want the cbc live interviewer to ask Munro and Annie… From that I got a pair of tickets, and attended the show. I never thought I would ever be able to even get near Munro or Annie, much less meet them! I had a pretty long conversation with them and they are the most down to earth people! I had told them how I won the tickets and they were so excited and happy for me! Munro and Annie were honestly the nicest people ever, I saw Annie first and she immediatly was like “Munro! come over here we have a huge degrassi fan!” and Munro came smiling and asked my name and shook my hand. It was so hard to keep my composure, being in the same room as my favourite degrassi characters was mind blowing and an experience I will never forget!
