'Mommy,' 'Orphan Black,' John Cusack Win 2015 Canadian Screen Awards

Xavier Dolan’s “Mommy,” left off the shortlist of contenders for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars, dominated Sunday’s Canadian Screen Awards, winning nine—including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay (Dolan), and Best Actress (Anne Dorval).

Other honorees included John Cusack, who won Best Supporting Actor for his role as a celebrity self-help guru in David Cronenberg’s Hollywood freak show, “Maps to the Stars”; “Maps” composer Howard Shore; and the high concept disaster film “Pompeii,” a German-Canadian co-production awarded five prizes in technical categories, including Best Visual Effects. On the television side, cult hit and critics’ darling “Orphan Black”—which returns to BBC America for a third season April 18—took home Best Drama and Best Actress (Drama) for Emmy long shot Tatiana Maslany.
