‘Brothers’ wins 12 Canadian Screen Awards ahead of awards show

Clement Virgo’s coming-of-age movie wins 12 of 14 nominations

Brotherly love was felt at the Canadian Screen Awards last night.

Clemente Virgo’s coming-of-age film “Brothers” took home 12 of the 14 categories it was nominated for, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Virgo said it was a surreal experience to be honored with the rest of the cast and crew at the ceremony, a record for the film.

Lamar Johnson won the award for his performance in the lead role, while Aaron Pierre won the home performance award for his performance in a supporting role.

A week of live events celebrating Canada’s media and entertainment industry concluded tonight with a gala recognizing TV series and comedy.

The major TV nominee was CBC/BET Plus historical drama “The Porters,” with 19 nominations.

The PBS millennial comedy “Kind of Way” has 15 nominations, followed by buddy cop comedy “A Pretty Difficult Case” with 11 nominations.
