A scene from Amazing Race Canada.

The Canadian Screen Awards handed out 50 honours Tuesday night as the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television (ACCT) kicked off a week of events highlighting the homegrown entertainment industry.

Awards in the categories of news and sports, documentary, lifestyle, and reality and digital media were delivered at a Toronto gala hosted by comedian Sean Cullen. On Wednesday night, the ACCT will honour those working in the drama, children's or youth, comedy and variety categories.

Among the winners was The Globe and Mail's Greg McArthur, who shared the Barbara Sears Award for best editorial research with the team that produced the fifth estate episode "The Mob and Michael Degroote" for the CBC.

The network also took home top honours in the best factual program or series category (for Still Standing), best history documentary program or series (Vietnam: Canada's Shadow War), best host of interviewer in a news or information program or series (Power & Politics' Rosemary Barton), best news anchor – national (Ian Hanomansing) and best news or information program (Marketplace, for the episode "Licence to Deceive"), among other awards.

Programs that netted multiple CSAs included CTV's The Amazing Race Canada (four awards), Vision TV's Songs of Freedom (three awards) and CBC's The National (two awards).

"To the people who chronicle our daily lives through reality-TV, news, sports and documentaries, bravo," Helga Stephenson, ACCT's CEO, said in a statement. "To the digital creators, thank you for taking us into the new world and congratulations to all of you."
