The Irish-Canadian co-production took home nine prizes at Canada’s equivalent of the Oscars.

Irish-Canadian co-production Room dominated the Canadian Screen Awards on Sunday night, winning nine prizes including best film for producers David Gross and Ed Guiney.

Lead actress Brie Larson repeated her triumph at this year’s Oscars and BAFTAs by winning best actress, while breakout star Jacob Tremblay took best actor.

Accepting the award from veteran Christopher Plummer, 77 years his senior, the young actor said: “This is amazing. I can’t believe a kid like me won against a bunch of amazing talent. Christopher Plummer, you’re a legend.”

The film also took awards for director Lenny Abrahamson, Emma Donoghue’s adapted screenplay, and Joan Allen’s supporting performance, as well as prizes for editing, make-up and production design.

Elsewhere, Irish romantic drama Brooklyn took two awards, for Michael Brook’s original score and Yves Bélanger’s cinematography.
