Golden Screen Award (Canada)

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

The Golden Screen Award, formerly known as the Golden Reel Award, is a Canadian film award, presented to the Canadian film with the biggest box office gross of the year.[1] The Canadian Motion Picture Distributors Association introduced this award in 1976 as part of the Canadian Film Awards until 1979.[2] The Golden Reel became part of the Genie Awards ceremonies in 1980, and is currently part of the Canadian Screen Awards.[1] It was renamed from Golden Reel to Golden Screen as of the 3rd Canadian Screen Awards in 2015.

As the economics of Canadian film production mean that the year's top-grossing Canadian film is often a francophone film from Quebec, the award often (although not always) went to the same film as the Billet d'or ("Golden Ticket"), which was presented by the Prix Iris to the top-grossing film from Quebec until that award was replaced by the fan-voted Public Prize in 2016.

In 2015, the Academy also introduced Golden Screen Awards for fiction and reality television, to honour the highest-rated Canadian television shows in each category.
