CBC plucks 12 Canuck b’cast nods

'CityPulse at Six' surprise winner of newscast award

TORONTO — Canada’s pubcaster is the perennial favorite in the docu, news and sports categories, doled out at the Gemini Awards on Saturday in Toronto, and programs from the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. took 12 of the 28 prizes handed out in the first of three nights honoring the best of Canadian TV.

CBC newsmagazine show “the fifth estate” took four prizes: news and info series, writing (Bob McKeown), photography (Colin Allison) and picture editing (Loretta Hicks).

“The National” won two, for newsmagazine segment and reportage (Neil MacDonald, David Common and Bill Loucks); and “The Nature of Things,” hosted by environmentalist David Suzuki, took the documentary series prize.

“CBC News: The 2010 Olympic Decision” drew the nod for news special event coverage; sports program or series kudos went to “Hockey Day in Canada,” also from the CBC.

A surprise victory went to upstart Chum Television’s “CityPulse at Six,” which took the newscast award, beating out standbys “The National” and “CTV News.”
