The miniseries, which aired on pubcaster CBC, stars Nicholas Campbell, Bob Hoskins, Michael Therriault and R.H. Thomson.

Peach Arch Entertainment’s “The Tudors” — produced in association with Reveille Eire, Working Title and CBC-TV — nabbed awards for supporting actress in a dramatic series (Maria Doyle Kennedy), photography in a dramatic series (Ousama Rawi), production design in a fiction program (Tom Conroy, Eliza Solesbury), and visual effects (Bob Munroe, Terry Bradley, Lisa Carr-Harris, Bret Culp, Bill Halliday, Warren Leathern and Bo Mosley).
