    Funkytown is one of the top grossing films in Quebec - barely got mentioned. Hobo With a Shotgun makes a huge profit - no noms. at all. Whistleblower, a "Canadian" movie about a Nebraska woman in Bosnia, gets a Best Picture nom. (Peter Howell in the To. Star sayshow "achingly Canuck" our movies used to be. This is a bad thing?)
