I’ve always said it’s like a little bit of the Academy Awards right here in BC – but the truth is that the Leo Awards are much much more. And when you consider all the talented people that work in BC film and television, there really is a lot to celebrate. The 15th anniversary gala of the Leo Awards was held last weekend as the Westin Bayshore rolled out the red carpet and put on the ritz to welcome a record number of deserving nominees. The local stars, directors, producers, voice actors and stuntmen that have helped make Hollywood North a reality were all winners. Comedians Brent Butt and wife Nancy Robertson were spectacular as hosts and live music by Hal Beckett and The Vancouver Film Orchestra really added big glamour to make this one of the best years ever!
