11 December 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

MONTREAL -- A dramedy about three Montreal bouncers who face inner dilemmas at work and away dominated this year's Prix Gemeaux awards, which honor the best in Canadian French-language television.

Minuit, le soir grabbed seven trophies in all at Saturday night's ceremony, including the best dramatic actor prize for Claude Legault, a shared best director nod for Jerome Sabourin and Claudine Sauve, and a screenplay award for Pierre-Yves Bernard.

The Prix Gemeauxs, organized by the Academie canadienne du cinema et de la television as the counterpart to the Gemini Awards for Canadian English-language TV series, also saw Cover Girl, a comedy about four transvestites, earn the best supporting actor award for Gilles Renaud and supporting actress trophy for Anne-Marie Cadieux.

TVA primetime soap Annie et ses hommes earned the trophy for best "teleroman," literally translated as "tele-novel," a type of TV series that skews toward female viewers.

Elsewhere, Radio-Canada's Rumeurs, a sitcom about harried magazine staffers, took home the best comedy prize, while mock soap opera Le coeur a ses raisons earned best actor awards for co-stars Marc Labreche and Anne Dorval. »
