LOST Media Mentions - DarkUFO

TORONTO/ONTARIO/MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - July 3, 2007) - The Ceremonies for The Constellation Awards, Canada's new award honouring the actors and producers behind today's hottest science fiction TV series and movies, will take place this weekend in Toronto. The nominated works cover several sci-fi faves, and feature newer series such as "Heroes" running against established fan favourites such as "Battlestar Galactica" and "Stargate SG-1".

Canadian Co-Production "Doctor Who" is nominated in eight categories, including multiple nominations for British actresses Billie Piper and Elisabeth Sladen in the "Best Female Performance in a Science Fiction Television Episode" category. Other nominees in the TV categories include multiple nominations for the Vancouver-filmed series "Supernatural" and "Stargate SG-1".

On the film side, "Children of Men" beat out "Superman Returns" and "X-Men, The Last Stand" for the most nominations. "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" are also represented on the final ballot.

In perhaps the most interesting category, "Outstanding Canadian Contribution to Science Fiction Film or Television", Alberta-born actress Evangeline Lilly from "Lost" and Vancouver-born actor Michael Shanks from "Stargate SG-1" find themselves facing off against each other, and against four series produced or co-produced in Canada.

The complete list of nominees can be found at http://constellations.tcon.ca

All Canadian fans of science fiction film and television were invited to nominate and vote for their favourites in all nine categories. The winners are being announced at the "Polaris 21" convention, taking place on July 7th, 2007 at 7:30pm at Toronto's Doubletree International Plaza Hotel. The ceremonies will be hosted by CITY-TV/Muchmusic personalities Ed The Sock and Liana K, and will feature several celebrity presenters including actor/comedian Rick Green from "The Red Green Show".

The awards are being sponsored and organized by the TCON Promotional Society, the not-for-profit corporation that organizes Toronto's annual "Polaris" science fiction event (formerly known as "Toronto Trek").
