TORONTO — Miniseries “Nuremberg” is the most-nominated program for the 16th annual Gemini Awards, Canada’s equivalent of the Emmys. Noms were announced Monday.

Drama series “Blue Murder,” from Barna-Alper Prods., tied for second with 10 noms, including dramatic series, and Jeremy Ratchford for an actor in a continuing lead dramatic role.
Also with 10 nominations, including dramatic series, is “Da Vinci’s Inquest,” the Vancouver-based drama skein, also produced by Barna-Alper, with Haddock Entertainment; series star Nicholas Campbell was tapped for actor in a continuing leading role.
“Da Vinci’s Inquest” is part of a long list of multi-nominated programs from west and east, an indication that the Canadian regions are coming into their own, noted Maria Topalovitch, prexy of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television (ACCT).
Organized by the ACCT, the Geminis award ceremony will be broadcast on CBC Television on Oct. l.
