Genie Award Nominations Announced

Unlike the Juno's the Genies I can get excited about - there is no mainstream Canadian film industry, it can't be about money because there isn't any money. For a full list of this year's nominees visit http://www.genieawards.ca/Genie29/infomain.cfm. The major award nominees are listed below, the links go to the trailers for each film. If you need more information on specific films try imdb.com or um..Google.
