OH CANADA…We are awesome!
Not only did Canada have an awesome year for music, but we aren’t doing too bad when it comes to the BIG SCREEN either, here’s all the ways our beautiful country is connected to this year’s Oscars:
- RACHEL MCADAMS – This talented Ontario lady has had quite the career. She’s the ONLY Canadian actress nominated in an acting category at this year’s Oscars.
- THE WEEKND – Do I really need to explain the impact this Toronto-Native has had on Canadian music this year? He is nominated for Best Original Song with Earned It.
- SPOTLIGHT – Like most movies, scenes from Spotlight were filmed in Toronto
- THE REVENANT – Because of our countries beautiful landscape and the struggling dollar, a majority of Leonardo DiCaprio’s box office smash was filmed in Alberta and British Columbia.
- BROOKLYN – This love story was partially shot in beautiful Montreal. BIEN OUI!
- JACOB TREMBLAY – The pint-sized star of Room is a VanCity boy and stole the hearts of everyone at the Critic’s Choice Awards. I want him to win just so he can take the stage again.
