Winners and memorable moments from the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards

It was a night to remember at the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards, where the Academy honoured the country's top talent in film and television. Seated in the front row of at the Four Season's Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto on Sunday (March 1) were Julianne Moore and Sarah Gadon, who chatted excitedly like old friends.

Fresh off her Oscar win, Julianne, 54, snagged a nomination for Best Actress for her role in David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars.

"Oh Canada!" she enthused, as she took to the stage early in the evening to present the award for Best Actress in a TV Comedy to Joanna Cassidy.

Another familiar face in the front row? Tatiana Maslany, who wowed in a blue cocktail dress with web-like detailing on one sleeve as she accepted her award for Best Actress in a TV Drama for her role in Orphan Black. "I feel so, so lucky," she said, thanking her mom and dad, as well as her grandparents - "Opa" and "Oma."

Indeed, the popular sci-fi drama was the big winner of the night, taking home a whopping 10 awards for the second year in a row, while the comedy and reality TV categories were dominated by Jason Priestley's Call Me Fitz and The Amazing Race Canada respectively, with four wins each.

For film, Xavier Dolan's Mommy took home nine awards including for Best Picture, Best Actress (Anne Dorval), Best Actor (Antoine Olivier Pilon) and Best Director.

Host Andrea Martin kept the crowd entertained for her first year as host with a hilarious opening monologue and plenty of jokes, but most impressive of all was the feisty comedian's ability for side-splitting ad-libbing.
