CBC’s factual entertainment series Dragons’ Den (pictured) was the big unscripted winner on the second night of the 26th annual Gemini Awards, scooping the prize for best Reality Program or Series.

Elsewhere on the second night of the awards – which in contrast to the first night was skewed more heavily towards drama, comedy and children’s programming – cookery show Conviction Kitchen picked up the prize for best direction in a reality program or series.

Of the other non-fiction awards, best direction in a performing arts program or series went to Star Portraits: Gordon Pinsent; best music, variety program or series went to Battle of the Blades; and best children’s or youth non-fiction program or series went to TVOKids’ Mark’s Moments.

The award for best host or interviewer in a general/human interest or talk program or series, meanwhile, went to George Stroumboulopoulos for George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.
