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.
