Lexa barely had any screen presence in Continuum, so I don't understand why she would be nominated for her role in that.

Well I just hope they and we all enjoy their LEO nominations and celebrations...with the re-election of the Liberals in BC, I doubt the BC Film and TV Industry will get the tax break law changes they were hoping for now and the implication for productions in Vancouver which are and have been steadily falling and being re-routed to provinces elsewhere in North America, meaning that there might not be as much work for our favourite actors/actresses/writers/directors and most importantly hard working behind the scenes crew in the coming years...:(


Many of the BC acting and directing fraternity on Twitter are extremely sad and worried tonight...:(

CONGRATULATIONS TO MICHAEL

Lexa sadly lost out, but was able to celebrate the many wins gained by the cast of "Continuum" tonight, including "Best Dramatic Series"...and the serendipty doesn't end there as Brian Markinson (ex Stargate SG-1) and fellow Continuum cast member guest starred with Michael in his award-winning episode of Saving Hope..:D

There are pics and tweets floating all around atm...am sure more will be posted (probably by me ;) ) later...:P
