Dion wins Juno’s Heart with 5 awards

Naked Ladies also take multiple Canuck music nods

TORONTO — Fresh from garnering four Grammys, Celine Dion took this year’s Juno awards by storm, nabbing five.

Canada’s most famous chanteuse won for best album (“Let’s Talk About Love”), best female vocalist, bestselling album, bestselling Francophone album (“S’il Suffisait D’Aimer”) and international achievement.

The only other multiple winner at the Canuck music industry ceremony was the band Bare Naked Ladies, which took the awards for best single (“One Week”), best pop album (“Stunt”) and best group.

Shania Twain picked up a Juno for country female vocalist. She had received two Grammys, for female country vocal performance and country song.

Jim Cuddy, of the group “Blue Rodeo,” received the best male vocalist nod, and Bryan Adams won as best songwriter, for co-writing “On A Day Like Today” with Phil Thornalley and “When You’re Gone” with Eliot Kennedy.

Canadian enigma the Tragically Hip won best album for “Phantom Power,” Melanie Doane captured new solo artist, and Rufus Wainwright won for his self-titled alternative album.

One name notably absent from the event was Alanis Morissette. According to Juno spokeswoman Jane Harbury, Morissette did not enter the competition this year — probably because her latest album, “Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie,” which contains the double Grammy-winning single “Uninvited,” was released just prior to the Juno entry deadline.
