Gemini Nominees Announced

Posted on October 13, 2005 by

The nominees were announced this week for the 20th annual Gemini Awards.

CTV’s recently cancelled The Eleventh Hour, a drama series about life at a newsmagazine, leads all nominees with 15 nods.

Three CBC shows follow: The Fifth Estate with 14 nominations, docu-miniseries Sex Traffic, about the international slave trade, also with 14 and the legal drama This Is Wonderland with 12.

This year, viewers are encouraged to get involved by voting for their favourite television host from more than sixty choices in the Lifestyle, Talk and Practical Information categories.

Viewers can vote on geminiawards.ca. The top 10 will be announced on Oct. 20.

The awards are handed out by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television and recognize achievements in Canadian English language television.

The Geminis will be handed out at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Nov. 19. Global Television will broadcast the event beginning at 8 p.m.
