Catherine O’Hara and Christopher Plummer took home top honours at the 14th-annual ACTRA Awards in Toronto on Saturday night.
The awards are sponsored by the ACTRA Toronto union, which represents more than 15,000 of the country’s professional performers working across an array of recorded media, including film and television.
Cancon staple O’Hara, best known for her work in film and on television’s SCTV, won the award for outstanding performance (female) for her work on the CBC sitcom Schitt’s Creek. Plummer, meanwhile, won the award for outstanding performance (male) for his role in Atom Egoyan’s dramatic film Remember.
Actress Sarah Gadon, star of the upcoming film Indignation and the new miniseries 11.22.63, was honoured with this year’s ACTRA Award of Excellence.
“In a tough business, it’s always exciting to see professional performers receive the recognition that they so richly deserve,” David Sparrow, president of ACTRA Toronto, said in a statement.
This year’s awards gala was held at the Carlu, and hosted by comic Martha Chaves.Report Typo/Error
