LEO AWARDS: CONTINUUM Wins Best Dramatic Series & Six Other Leos

Vancouver-cop-from-the-future series Continuum came away the big winner at the Leo Awards last night. Creator and showrunner Simon Barry was scheduled to do red carpet interviews but by the time he began the media gauntlet the event had dissolved into happy chaos and was cut short so that the gala ceremony could wrap before midnight. As it was, Continuum won its Leo for Best Dramatic Series at around 11:30 p.m., the last award of the evening.

Performance nominees Richard Harmon, Lexa Doig, Brian Markinson and Ian Tracey all ditched the red carpet too and hurried into the Westin Bayshore Hotel.

Only performance nominee Jennifer Spence, with husband Benjamin Ratner, made it to the end with time to spare.

Continuum took home seven Leos this weekend for its first season: Best Dramatic Series, Best Supporting Performance for Richard Harmon’s Liber8 apprentice, Best Guest Performance for Ian Tracey’s wacky time traveller,  Best Direction for William Waring, Best Screenwriting for Simon Barry’s season one finale script End Times;  Best Picture Editing for Alison Grace and Best Costume Design for Maya Mani for the suit and other Vancouver 2077 designs.
