The nominations, which were announced live from Toronto, highlight the best of the best in Canadian film and television, from acting to directing and writing. This year's ceremony has been touted as being a night when "stars will be born."

Unlike year's past, the academy has expanded its Best Picture category to feature 10 of Canada's best films. Room, Remember, Brooklyn, Corbo, The Demons, Felix and Meira, The Forbidden Room, My Internship in Canada, Our Loved Ones and Sleeping Giant will battle it out for the night's biggest prize.

Fresh off his win a the Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday (Jan. 17), Vancouver's Jacob Tremblay nabbed a Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role nomination for Room. His co-star and onscreen mom Brie Larson was also singled out for her harrowing performance.

This year's host, comedian Norm Macdonald, said he is "thrilled" to have been asked to emcee the big night and joked, "I hope i can get back across the border with the award they'd better give me." The SNL-alum follows in the footsteps of previous hosts Andrea Martin and Martin Short, who will return to the stage to accept 2016's Lifetime Achievement Award.

Trophies will be handed on March 13 live on CBC.
