Following the revealing of the winners in their documentary, lifestyle, news, and sports programming categories earlier this month, Canada’s Gemini Awards presented 19 more awards in Toronto during a black-tie broadcast gala over the weekend. On the non-fiction/factual entertainment front, notable winners included Cupcake Girls (produced by Force Four Entertainment Inc.) in the best reality program or series category, and Spectacle with Elvis Costello (produced by Tri-Fi Productions Inc. and Chatting Glasses UK Ltd.) taking home the honor for best talk series. The Donald Brittain Award for best social/political documentary program went to Broke, produced by ID: Productions Inc. and directed by Rosie Dransfeld. The Gemini Awards, presented by Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, honor outstanding achievements in the Canadian English-language TV industry.
