Heartbeats

Barney’s Version

Splice

10 1/2

 

Barney’s Version led the pack with a total of 11 nominations, and current Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, Incendies, was the runner-up with a total of 10 nominations.  It was also nice to see nominations in some of the other categories given to underappreciated Canadian films like Defendor, The Trotsky and A Shine of Rainbows.
