Canadian Screen Awards 2013: The Return of Geneviève Bujold

Genevieve Bujold James Cromwell Still MineGeneviève Bujold is back: Canadian Screen Awards 2013

[See previous post: "Canadian Screen Awards: Oscar-Nominated War Witch Tops."] In addition to War Witch’s Rachel Mwanza, the Canadian Screen Awards 2013 Best Actress nominees are Evelyne Brochu for Inch’allah, Marilyn Castonguay for L’Affaire Dumont, Suzanne Clément for Laurence Anyways, and Geneviève Bujold for Still Mine. In the Michael McGowan-directed drama based on real-life events, the veteran Bujold plays farmer James Cromwell tough-but-ailing wife whose physical frailty sets in motion the film’s plot: Cromwell’s desire to build a better, more comfortable house for Bujold pits him against government inspector Jonathan Potts.

The Montreal-born Geneviève Bujold is best known for her Hollywood movies: Charles Jarrott’s Best Picture Academy Award nominee Anne of the Thousand Days (1969), which earned Bujold a Best Actress Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Anne Boleyn; Mark Robson’s Earthquake, playing Charlton Heston’s extra-marital love interest (Ava Gardner was the cheated-on wife); and Michael Crichton’s thriller Coma, as a doctor out to uncover some unhealthy goings-on at a renowned hospital facility.

I should add that Geneviève Bujold Bujold’s Canadian Screen Award nomination is her sixth — if you consider the new awards as an extension of the old Genies. Bujold received a Best Supporting Actress Genie for Bob Clark’s Sherlock Holmes / Jack the Ripper thriller Murder by Decree (1979), and was later nominated four more times, all but the last instance in the Best Actress category: Paul Almond’s Final Assignment (1980), David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers (1988), Michel Brault’s Mon Amie Max (1994), and Don McKellar’s Last Night (1998).
