Denis Villeneuve's family drama voted best Canadian pic

Incendies,” Canada’s entry in the foreign language category at the Oscars, beat Vincenzo Natali’s “Splice” and Bruce McDonald’s “Trigger.”

Montreal-based thesp Jay Baruchel presented the prize to Villeneuve, who won last year for “Polytechnique.” McDonald received a special citation to mark an exceptional year that saw him direct four features — “Trigger,” “This Movie Is Broken, “Music From the Big House” and “Hard Core Logo 2.”
