is This is how I love you 2 and’Audrey is backtwo super original productions whose media careers took off on paid platforms before (eventually) switching to traditional TV.


Florence Longpre inside Audrey is back. In addition to playing the main character, the actress co-wrote the series with Guillaume Lambert.

The overwhelming amount of good qualifying TVs – one of the best years in a very long time – has ruled out series that would have easily broken through top 5 in a quieter year, let’s say. In front of the flower of the show, the unveiling of the finalists aroused beautiful surprises, but also several disappointments for those excluded from the gala on 18 September, still heated by Véronique Cloutier, less and less hot since then Lotus-Minus.

In the prestigious and tough category of drama series, Bell Media dominates with three of the five finalists: the thriller One way ticket (Noovo), the sports drama Tour (Noovo) and crime thrillers A criminal case (Want). By heart, this is unheard of for Bell Media, which now plays in the same AAA league as Radio-Canada and TVA.

That’s how I love you And Raspberry time complete the main quintet. They were excluded from this coveted category The red bracelets, get me out of myself, Portrait-robot, wildlife manual, After, The defect 2, Plan B 3, Reasonable doubt, The man she loved too much And Sleepless night. It gives you an idea of ​​the ferocity of competition that reigns there.

This past year has been strong and fertile in high quality TV series. My heart sways between One way ticket And That’s how I love youwith a preference for the feminist caïds of Sainte-Foy.

Plan B, The red bracelets, Reasonable doubt, After And wildlife manual however, he deserved more than the crumbs. Chaos And A family bondtwo very average titles, they also picked up shots, unsurprisingly.

In comedy, Happiness by François Avard was not selected, just like The brotherhood, Counter offer, The blue house 3 And Me niether. We will then play between Audrey is back, Boys, Without an appointment, eye of the storm 2 And outliving her children. Important supervision here: Leo by Fabien Cloutier, which the Academy has unjustly snubbed, let’s see. Leo far surpasses outliving her children. Prediction: it’s in your pocket for Audrey is back.

Again, nothing 5And Rank in the telenovelas. Frankly. The fight will be between District 31, Lifetime, We, The escape And The perfect moments. No selection here for The blue hour And Another story. District 31 will triumph for the last time.

For another obscure reason, none of the actors and actresses of District 31 was noted in the leading roles of soap operas. Among the men, surprise, three actors fromNotices (Danny Gilmore, Frédéric Pierre and Guy Jodoin) and Roy Dupuis (Lifetime) and Emile Proulx-Cloutier (The perfect moments) will compete for the trophy. Émile Proulx-Cloutier will thank the microphone, I think.

On the female side, two young actresses from the soap opera We (Club Illico), namely Marianne Fortier and Laetitia Isambert. They will face expert Chantal Fontaine (The escape), Sophie Prégent (Notices) and Marina Orsini (Another story). For the moving last moments of Anemone Leduc, Marina Orsini will grab the statuette.

Vincent Leclerc shines twice among dramatic actors for his participation in Plan B 3 it’s at get me out of myself. His opponents? Luc Picard (One way ticket), Edison Ruiz (Francisco in Raspberry time) and Steve Laplante (After). Notable absences: Patrice Robitaille and François Létourneau da That’s how I love you. My vote goes to Luc Picard.

Still in a drama, it’s super hard to decide between Marilyn Castonguay (That’s how I love you), Sandrine Bisson (Raspberry time), Anne-Elisabeth Bossé (Plan B), Celine Bonnier (A criminal case) and Martine Francke (The world of Gabrielle Roy). My pick: Huguette Delisle’s Devil’s Eye.

In comic women, the two main performers ofAudrey is back (Florence Longpré and Josée Deschênes) eclipse the 2021 winner, Christine Beaulieu of eye of the storm ? Melissa Desormeaux-Poulin (outliving her children) and Rachel Graton (A family bond) close the podium. The Twins will go to Florence Longpré.


Denis Bouchard and Josée Deschênes inside Audrey is back

The comedians chosen by the Academy are called Denis Bouchard (Audrey is back), Guy Nadon (The blue house), Michel Charette (Happiness), Alessio Martin (Boys) and Mani Soleymanlou (outliving her children). Verdict: Denis Bouchard, for the nuances and realism of his playing.

No If we loved each otherfromisland of love you hate Celebrity Big Brother in reality shows, but a battle between Wooden heads, Love is in the meadow, In the eye of the dragonthe newspaper Academy of the Stars And OD in the West. The comedy Between two sheets was recorded in the humorous series in which it will measure itself Club Sol, Fist Club, Infoman And Laugh without taboos.

A company, closing. In addition to his candidacy for Afteractor Steve Laplante adds three more for his supporting roles in Leo, That’s how I love you And Forever, not a day. It is impressive, this talent that unfolds in so many different registers.
