Geminis kudocast returns to CBC

ETCanada will cover red-carpet preshow

TORONTO — Canada’s Gemini Awards ceremony, celebrating its TV industry, is returning to longtime home CBC after two years at Global Television.

But Global’s parent Canwest Global still has some bragging rights. Its ET spin-off, ETCanada, will cover the red-carpet preshow.

And in a spirit of giving everyone a little something, the Oct. 28 kudocast will go on the road for a second year, to Regina, Saskatchewan. The non-televised portion of the awards are being handed out Oct. 15-17 in Toronto.

Last year the gala was held in Vancouver, B.C., the first time in its 22-year history the gathering, organized by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television, was not in Toronto.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing back the Geminis to the CBC, and to hold it in Regina where the top two shows in Canada are produced, is fabulous,” said Kirstine Layfield, the CBC’s executive director of Network Programming, referring to Canadian hits “Corner Gas” and “Little Mosque on the Prairie.”
