It's Canada's moment in the silver-screen spotlight! The Canadian Screen Awards have just released their list of nominees for the 2019 ceremony, and the categories are stacked with independent films and big-name, small-screen stars alike.

Scroll down for the list of nominees...

Anne with an E, Schitt's Creek, Workin' Moms and Bad Blood all received nods from the Academy, as well as stars Dan Levy, Annie Murphy, Bad Blood's Kim Coates, Jerry O'Connell of Carter, among others.
