In case you missed it on the front page of The New York Times
, the Canadian Screenwriting Awards finalists are up. (The announcement was in very small type. Small, light grey type.) I see that in the comedy category, Corner Gas
is competing against Corner Gas
and Corner Gas
. Well, I for one voted for Corner Gas
, so there.
Speaking of which, it was really weird watching Wishmaster 4
for a possible gig last night, and watching Tara Spencer-Nairn with her clothes off, arguing with a demon. I bet she's happy she gets to wear a police uniform on TV these days.
I was sorry to see that Sean Carley didn't get a nom for his excellent Charlie Jade
script. I would say the same thing about Denis McGrath, because his bottle/clip show was really terrific, and he had about two minutes to write it in, but I doubt anybody who hadn't watched the show could have understood the script. Or, well, the episode. I guess that's one advantage of writing a franchise show: easy to read the scripts even if you don't know the show...
