The nominees for the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards have been unveiled, with Denis Villeneuve’s “Enemy,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal in two roles, and Quebecois wunderkind Xavier Dolan’s “Tom at the Farm” scoring some major nods from the Canadian Academy.
“Enemy” has taken nods for Best Picture, Best Direction, Best Acting (Gyllenhaal) and Best Editing, to name a few. (Villeneuve’s white-knuckle kidnapping thriller “Prisoners,” also starring Gyllenhaal, hit theaters stateside back in September.) Dolan’s “Tom at the Farm” has nabbed nominations including Best Picture and Direction.
Other nominees include Canadian Oscar entry “Gabrielle,” following the life of a disabled young woman; Barbara Doran and Roger Frappier’s fest favorite “The Grand Seduction”; and the little indie that could, Matt Johnson’s Slamdance winner “The Dirties,” an unsettling portrait of school bullying, nabbed a nomination in Editing.
