Morissette, Twain tops at Juno Awards

McLachlan, Adams, Backstreet also take home Canuck nods

TORONTO — The usual suspects and some new faces took the honors at the 29th annual Juno Award celebration, Canada’s answer to the Grammys, held Saturday and Sunday nights in Toronto.

This year’s most-nominated artist, seven-time Grammy winner and Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie Alanis Morissette, took two Junos for best album and best video. Shania Twain got the nods for songwriting and country female artist, Sarah McLachlan received international achievement kudos, and Bryan Adams took the award for best male artist.

But the Junos spotlighted some fresh faces as well. Tal Bachman, son of rock legend Randy, took awards for best new solo artist and best producer for “She’s So High” and “If You Sleep,” from his self-titled debut album. Montreal-based R&B/pop duo Sky took the best new group prize, and songstress Chantal Kreviazuk received the awards for best female artist and best pop/adult album for her sophomore disc “Colour Moving and Still.”

Other winners included the Backstreet Boys, whose “Millennium” won bestselling album, Diana Krall for best vocal jazz album for “When I Look in Your Eyes,” and the Matthew Good Band, which received nods for best group and for best rock album for “Beautiful Midnight.” Canadian legend the Tragically Hip took the award for best single with “Bobcaygeon.”

This year’s edition marked the first time that the Junos have been spread over two nights, with 31 awards handed out on Saturday at a gala dinner at Toronto’s Metro Convention Center and 11 more on Sunday night at the Skydome. The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences hand out the awards.
