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 […]

There have been many actors who have tried to muster and maintain the true essence of a gangster. Some that come to mind are Robert DeNiro, Chazz Palminteri, James Cagney, Al Pacino, James Caan and Joe Pesci. But there is one in particular who is not mentioned as much but who truly captures the aura […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. One of the coolest new TV ventures of the year was Breaking Pointe, a CW reality show about the inside politics and interpersonal dramas of professional ballet dancers at Ballet West in Salt Lake City.

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Sometimes the smartest characters and the most compelling human drama on television aren’t in the conference rooms of Lockhart/Gardner or the meth labs and zombie killing fields of AMC. As fans of the best reality competition shows know, […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series.   In honour of the Oscar Argo is about to win, we thought we’d celebrate the night by publishing our Exclusive Interview with one of its most intriguing stars. Scoot McNairy’s beautifully conflicted turn as trapped “houseguest” Joe […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The lovably scatterbrained Fran Kranz has quickly become the great Joss Whedon’s go-to guy for casual genius characters like Dollhouse‘s futuristic tech whiz Topher and The Cabin in the Woods‘ stoner philosopher Marty. He’s a Yale grad […]

Here’s the list of some of the Q&As you’ll be seeing on the site in the next few weeks leading up to the announcement of our 2012 Award Winners. NOTE: […]

I’ve been sitting on this interview awhile now, waiting for the exact perfect time to post it because it’s one of the most exciting ones we’ve ever had on the site, at least for me. So I thought I’d post it today, in honour of opening night of the 2012/2013 National Ballet of Canada season. […]

DJ Tim Bernyk hails from Boston, MA and has recently begun spinning live again since taking a break to raise his son, Sean. After missing a quarter of his set due to a long wait, I finally caught DJ Tim in action for a good 45 minutes. We talked after his set for a few […]

The Toronto Fringe Festival starts today! So, to arm you in your battle against the overwhelming number of options, we thought we’d give you the scoop on some of the productions involving My Theatre favourites (and a couple that just look awesome). Here’s what the actual artists involved have to say about their Fringe shows: […]

Let me just put it out there – I love American Idol. I love watching the kids come in, hearts on sleeves, nervous, hoping against hope they will get their “golden ticket to Hollywood”. I love watching their families and friends so anxious to see them do well. I don’t, however, enjoy the delusional truly […]

In this installment of “Talking to Fox” we got to hear from the legendary Mr. Nimoy about his role as William Bell on Fringe. But it’s Leonard Freakin’ Nimoy! So sometimes we got off-track and into a more general discussion proving that he’s just awesome. Topics included, but were not limited to, his “retirement,” photography, […]

With so many up-and-coming bands racing to sign with a label and moving faster than the speed of light, it is refreshing to see a local band thrive as well as they have while taking it easy and enjoying the journey. Toronto’s Octobre’s Ending is certainly a well-polished gem, having been in the biz for […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present the My TV Nominee Interview Series. One of the most famous Survivor contestants in 24 seasons is Benjamin “Coach” Wade.

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present the My Theatre Nominee Interview Series.   In my first season covering The Shaw Festival there was one actor who really stood out as the most eclectic and compelling performer. The chameleonic Steven Sutcliffe stole my attention with a show-saving […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present the My Theatre Nominee Interview Series.

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present the My Theatre Nominee Interview Series.

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present the My TV Nominee Interview Series. The actor behind one of the main villains on Canada’s best TV show, Being Erica, came back in the show’s final season to lend the character a reassuring dash of pathos. Adam MacDonald, who played Josh MacIntosh […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present the My Theatre Nominee Interview Series. Iphigenia in Tauris was the first opera I reviewed for My Entertainment World, and remains my favourite. With stunning lighting design, stirring modern visuals and an alround fantastic cast, the production was one to […]

  Brian Balduzzi

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present the My Theatre Nominee Interview Series. FUDGE Theatre Company’s production of the revolutionary rock musical Spring Awakening was an enthralling piece of work.

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present the My Theatre Nominee Interview Series. Thank god for “The Best of Fringe, Uptown”. Without that fantastic series at The Young Centre for the Performing Arts, I would have missed three of the best productions of 2011. One of those […]
