CBC Viewers' Choice Award

If you have been watching The Hour of late, you are aware that the 22nd Annual Gemini Awards ceremony will be hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos on Sunday, October, 28th.

There is an element of audience participation involved, as we can vote for
"Favorite Canadian on a TV Series (Not Eligible for a Gemini)", in order to select the winner of the CBC Viewers’ Choice Award. The list of nominees for this category is huge, with twenty-six home-grown performers available for your consideration. Among this group are some recent visitors to The Hour including Adam Beach and the very funny Howie Mandel.

If contests are your thing, voting automatically enters your name in the draw for an “official Gemini Gift Bag”! Check the website for all the legal
mumbo jumbo. The contest closes October 19th.

Sort of related to this contest... but here's an FYI that the three categories that The Hour is nominated for (Best Talk Series, Best Production Design or Art Direction in a Non-Fiction Program or Series and Best Host or Interviewer in a General/Human Interest or Talk Program or Series will be presented tomorrow (Tuesday) night in Toronto at the Lifestyle, Children's and Youth Gala.

The contest is hilarious... brilliant that it's getting American press coverage. Though the viewer's choice awards segments were so funny last year...

Thank you for the info Mich. We are curious what piece The Hour submitted when they applied for best talk series. Do you know?

George's mouth"piece"!

That information is probably in tonight's press kit, but because the Best Direction nom is for the prime time special, I'm guessing that's what they submitted. Once I see tonight's PK, I'll check for that information.

I'll post the results for the categories as soon as I can.

Yeah! I was just talking with George before he went to the awards night. I had a feeling The Hour was going to win... I see the toll the Gemini production is taking on the hard working Host and his fine production crew and I will be glad when the Geminis are over and they can go back to their normal crazy schedule...
