Belleville Wins Top Canadian film Prize

The 25th annual Genie Awards, the Canadian film industry’s equivalent of the Oscars, announced their winners yesterday, and the winner for Best Motion Picture of 2004 was THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE. The film was competing against four live-action features and still managed to come out on top. It’s nice to hear that Canadian filmmakers still have the good sense to judge each individual film on its own merits, and don’t automatically relegate their animated films to a separate, lesser award category.
