AWARDS 32nd Annual Genie Awards CBC, 8 p.m. ET/PT Where’s Andrea Martin? The former SCTV star backed out of hosting the 32nd annual Canadian film awards at the eleventh hour yesterday, citing a rescheduled previous commitment in Los Angeles. Ms. Martin has, however, deigned to appear in pre-taped vignettes with co-host George Stroumboulopoulos during the live broadcast from a Toronto Hotel. Leading the nominations this year are Jean-Marc Vallee’s romantic film Café de Flore, with 13 nods, followed by David Cronenberg’s fact-based drama A Dangerous Method, with 11 nominations. In between the handing out of trophies, the program will feature musical turns from Saskatchewan rockers The Sheepdogs and the Somali-Canadian artist known as K’naan.
