Not only did Jay head out to an actual event yesterday (they’re getting rarer these days, aren’t they?) when he showed as announced at the 31rst Genie Awards to support his amazing film The Trotsky, but the film also walked away with two Genies!
Only one other film even registered a ripple, with Jacob Tierney’s The Trotsky sneaking into the mix with two Genies. One was for Tierney’s best original screenplay and one for the film’s featured song, Already Gone. The other 19 feature films which had earned at least one nomination were long gone when it was all over.

I have no idea if this is true (sorry, I’ve been so busy lately!) but according to Just Jared Jay is engaged to adorable, talented and gorgeous Scott Pilgrim actress Alison Pill in September of 2012:
“[Alison] came to Montreal for Christmas and my gift to her was…I was going to give her a ring and I wasn’t sure, I wasn’t ready in my heart to say what it was, but it was just a ring for now – happened to be a 180 year old Victorian wedding band from England!” Jay said.
Jay and Alison, 25, plan to marry in September of 2012.
If anyone can confirm this (a link to the ET Canada video would be much appreciated!), please let me know via the comments because currently the news submitter isn’t working right. If it is true, congratulations to both of them, JBF wishes them all the happiness in the world!
