So a few weeks ago I blogged about the Gemini Awards creating a new one this year for the hottest male and female Canadian TV star.
I think it was wrong for several reasons. I didn’t even get into the part where people who normally turn into the awards show probably won’t care, and those who don’t watch won’t start to because of this new award.
But I couldn’t believe the choices that were included. Out of 20 women, a few of them weren’t even on TV anymore, and there were obvious ones missing (Elisha Cuthbert and Evangeline Lilly were two examples). They also misspelled the names of two of their nominees.
But now the choice has been narrowed down to the top 5, and I must say, if this is how Canadians voted, I am very disappointed with our choices. No wonder people lose confidence in the voting system.
For the women, the final five are:
— Kim Cattrall for Sex and the City, which hasn’t been a TV show for four years;
— Shenae Grimes for 90210, which I’m surprised hasn’t been cancelled yet;
— Leah Miller for So You Think You Can Dance Canada, in which I don’t even know what she does on the show;
— Ngozi Paul for Da Kink in My Hair, which I don’t think anyone watches;
— and Trish Stratus for Stratusphere, which I’ve never heard of.
I’m guessing these were the five of the 20 contestants that said they could make it to the Geminis, and that’s how they made it this far.
For the guys finalists, there’s:
— Matte Babel from Much on Demand;
— Yannick Bisson for Murdoch Mysteries;
— Brendan Fehr for CSI: Miami;
— Mike Holmes for Holmes on Homes
— and Taylor Kitsch for Friday Night Lights.
