2017 was rough on a lot of people but the art, boy, the art was something else. This year saw a flood of television masterworks, a ton of killer theatre, and more fantastic movies released in the course of 12 months than we can remember in our lifetimes. It was something to see and we were so proud to get to cover it all. As we head into 2018 with our hopes high, let’s celebrate the work that got us through 2017.
This is home base for our entire 2017 Awards Season. Starting with the Nomination Announcements, then the Nominee Interview Series and, finally, The Winners!
After 10 years as the MyTV/MyTheatre/MyCinema Awards, we’ve changed the name this year to the MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards to better reflect our selection process. We hope that this new moniker will bring clarity as a new crop of awesome artists joins the hundreds of nominees from years past.
The Awards Ceremony
We announced the winners of the theatre awards at an exclusive bash at The Great Hall in Toronto on April 16th, hosted by the incomparable Morro & Jasp and featuring music from our signature band Hand-Picked Favourites. With help from sponsors like Dufflet Pastries and our generous patrons and donors, we celebrated inspiring theatre artists across the theatrical spectrum from basement productions without a dollar to spare to the lavish operas, ballets, musicals and plays that sold out the country’s biggest performance spaces. Take a look at photos from the event HERE.
The Nominee Interview Series
Between the Nomination Announcements and the Awards Ceremony, we interviewed more than 100 of the nominated artists as part of our annual interview series. CLICK HERE for the full list of this year’s interviews.
