Reuters: Canada's top movie awards go "C.R.A.Z.Y."

A French-language, gay-themed coming-of-age drama about a large Catholic family dominated Canada’s Genie film awards Monday, taking home 10 prizes, including best film and director. Jean-Marc Vallee‘s Quebec-made “C.R.A.Z.Y.” also won honors for original screenplay, actor (Michel Cote), supporting actress (Danielle Proulx) and a host of craft awards. It went into the event with 12 nominations. The impressive showing for “C.R.A.Z.Y.” caps off a stellar year for Vallee. His $6 million film was the highest-grossing homegrown movie in Canada last year. It also won honors at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Atlantic Film Festival and the AFI Los Angeles International Film Festival. Reuters reports.
