Long time no post due to all my type strokes being given gleefully to The CAFTCAD Awards as soon as I finished Season 12 of Murdoch Mysteries. As well as being the co-chair and president of the event, I am honoured to say that I have been nominated along with my teams, in 3 categories. Well sorta 4.
Episode 1203 of Murdoch Mysteries, My big Fat Mimico Wedding has been nominated for Best Costume Design in Television- Period. As well the building team of Erika Fulop, Julie Munson, Mary Furlong and Charlene Seniuk have been nominated in Excellence in Building (the cut and creation of the costumes) for Murdoch Mysteries Season 12.
In the Web Series Category Chateau Laurier garnered my second CAFTCAD Awards Nom. This 1912 piece previously won Best Costume Design Award from the International Academy of Web Television Awards in 2018. Producer and Director James Stewart sent me a message as soon as the submissions were announced and asked to submit on my behalf.
And the third(!) one came for short film based on a Margaret Atwood short story, ROPEd set during the witch trials of the late seventeenth century. Very kindly Producer Jordanna Aarons also asked to submit me and my team for the awards.
I wish all the nominees from across Canada all the very best and am thrilled to be in such talented company. It's exciting to know that many nominees and their teams will be flying into Toronto for the event at the prestigious Aga Kahn Museum on February 10th.
How lucky I am to have the support of productions that recognize the work of their departments and I was honoured to even be submitted. And wonderfully surprised to be nominated. Let's hope I don't win them all as I am already quite happy with the award prototype (with chipped wing) to filter the winter light through.
Just love dressing up, dressing other people up and talking about it. A lot. And laughing too.
