I Dream of Genies

I Dream of Genies

I had so much fun bitchily live blogging the Genie Awards last year that I’m actually kind of sad I’m missing it this year. Especially since the awards clearly are actually trying this year, moving from an embarrassingly lowbrow concert venue in Toronto where the biggest “celebrity” was Joshua Jackson to classy new digs in the nation’s capital with William Shatner hosting, and a very respectable batch of nominees including “Incendies,” “Barney’s Version,” “Heartbeats” (making up nicely for fucking over Mr. Dolan last year), and “Last Train Home.” I tried to send my occasionally trainwrecky teenage sister (who lives in Ottawa) as a special “Lost Boy” correspondent but it didn’t work out… I can make myself laugh out loud just by imagining what that scenario would have looked like.

Anyways, happy Genies night, Canada… And a pre-congrats to “Incendies” for likely taking every single award.
