Gemini Nominations Announced

The Gemini awards for outstanding achievement in Canadian television have been announced; Toronto Life has a non-PDF list of nominees. Flashpoint and Less Than Kind are among the most-nominated shows. Among non-nominated shows, Being Erica is one of the more surprising omissions (the five drama nominees are Durham County, Flashpoint, The Tudors, Republic of Doyle and Stargate Universe).

Also, while Dan For Mayor made the list of comedy nominees, CTV’s other comedy, Hiccups, did not; while Dan is much the more deserving of the two, this omission on top of Corner Gas‘s final-season Gemini snub suggests that Brent Butt has some kind of Gemini Awards hard luck (though in this case it could simply be a strict question of merit). Among the shows that did get nominated in that category, I feel like Little Mosque is kind of coasting at this point.
