Sunday, April 10th, Canadian actors, producers, directors, and writers in TV & Film as well as Broadcasters were nominated and awarded for their outstanding work at The Canadian Screen Actors Awards - Canada’s equivalent to The Oscars and The Emmys. Hosted by actor Simu Liu (Shang-Chi in the 2021 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), the event aired virtually on CBC. Janette’s TV & Podcast were among Canada’s top accredited media in the virtual red carpet press room, interviewing the big winners for the first time. In this initial episode in our special CSA series, Janette speaks with actor, Liam Diaz, who plays “Bing” in the movie, Scarborough, Best Picture winner. Diaz won Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role – an incredible accomplishment considering this was his first-ever acting job. Scarborough is an amazing movie with a powerful message that explores the struggles, endurance, and resilience of this culturally diverse Toronto community through the lives of three kids growing up within a system that has set them up for failure. Filmed on location in the Kingston-Galloway/West Hill neighbourhood, Scarborough takes place over the course of a school year. Producer/Writing team, Shaskha Nakhai & Rich Willaimson, winners of Best Achievement in Direction, were also on-hand to discuss what motivated them to make this film.
