When we announced that Mark Duplass was our My Cinema Performer of the Year, we acknowledged that it was a close race between him and Chris Messina. Here was a guy winning the My Cinema Award when a solid portion of the work we loved him for happened on the small screen (namely, The Mindy […]

It broke our hearts when we looked at the category breakdowns in this year’s My Cinema (and My TV, for that matter) Awards and realized that Mark Duplass wouldn’t win anything.He’d barely missed out on being nominated in the Best Actor in a Drama category for his superb improvised performance in Your Sister’s Sister and […]

This is the second year in a row that My Theatre’s Emerging Artist Award has gone to someone who serves as the face of their theatre company (this year’s Honorary Award did too). The reason for that is fairly simple- the regular My Theatre Awards have a ton of acting categories, one for playwrights and […]

Continuing our 2012 Emerging Artist Awards over into My TV, this recipient- at 35- is a fair bit older than the others (the My Cinema Emerging Artist was 14 when he made the movie!) but we’re pretty sure he counts as Emerging because 2012 saw him go from “that guy you sorta might recognize from […]

Last year we introduced the My Theatre Emerging Artist Award to our season. This year we’ve extended it to become a part of the My TV and My Cinema Awards as well. Here’s where we honour someone who made our radar in a big way for the first time during the 2012 season (I know, […]

A big thing happened to Toronto’s commercial theatre scene in 2012: Dancap Productions closed its doors. That’s huge. It essentially cuts big-budget theatre in half in the city. It reflects the massive (negative) shift in tourism over the last decade and leaves Mirvish Productions with a total monopoly over the presentation of Broadway hits and […]

We choose the winners of our regular My TV Award categories through a combination of fan, staff and editorial votes (33% each) and sometimes it works out that your favourites don’t win where they’re nominated. But we wanted to make sure they know how much you wanted them to win, thus Fan Favourite. We created this award […]

The Nominees have been notified, the votes have been counted, the staff has weighed in, and the Winners Have Been Announced for the inaugural My Games Awards. Now it’s time for My Games to join the My TV/My Theatre/My Cinema tradition of Honorary Awards (a special award for someone whose work goes above and beyond but doesn’t […]

We had more fan votes this year than the My Theatre Awards have ever had before, so we decided to do what we started last year with the My TV Awards– choose a Fan Favourite who received overwhelming support throughout our extended awards season and Nominee Interview Series. We choose the winners of our regular […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Macbeth is very near and dear to my heart. I’ve seen tons of productions with settings ranging from Scotland to Africa, The White House, and a heroin-chic urban tribe, and I’ve seen plenty of actors attempt the […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The star of Flat Earth’s memorable Pillowman (directed by My Theatre-favourite Sarah Gazdowicz), Cameron Gosselin’s chilling turn as Katurian anchored one of the year’s best productions. One of this year’s nominees for Best Actor in a Regional Production, Cameron took […]

The delightful star of The Stratford Festival’s two big musicals of 2012, Amy Wallis turned in memorable performances as both Sally Brown (Charlie’s precocious sister) and Mabel, the feisty soprano of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance. One […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Our favourite production that the sadly departed Dancap Productions ever brought to town was In the Heights. Its standout performer was Presilah Nunez who brought her powerhouse voice and endless empathy to the role of Vanessa. One […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. A consistent standout of the Stratford musical ensemble (and one of our 2010 Performers of the Year), Kyle Golemba has always caught our attention not just for his strong voice and comedic chops, but because he’s literally one […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Nominated for a second time in this category, the adorable Bethany Jillard (who was named one of our Performers of the Year last year) was the best thing about Stratford’s flagship 2012 production of Henry V, delivering a funny and […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. One of the most dynamic actresses in Canadian theatre, Laura Condlln has been making headlines for CanStage this off-season as the heartbreaking lead in 4.48 Psychosis. In her years at Stratford, she delivered lots of chronically underrated performances, earning a 2011 […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. We’re obsessed with Amy Sherman-Palladino’s affable ABC Family hit about a small-town ballet school run by Emily Gilmore and Millie (the Thoroughly Modern one). We’re particularly obsessed with the fiesty foursome of teenage ballerinas who’ve become very much the […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Global TV’s Bomb Girls is easily the best Canadian TV show in years, something wholly original even as it expands into the American market. The breakout character of the miniseries-turned-fullseries is Ali Liebert’s tough and witty Betty- reluctant Victory Munitions […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The Canadian TV industry is pretty sparse, but with Bomb Girls, Global TV stepped it up to create a period piece that tells a Can-con story with better writing and production values than almost anything else in […]
