The Genie Awards & Interviews With We Are The City and Aidan Knight – S06E27

Apologies on combining Wednesday’s radio show and The Genie Awards all in one entry. I did not want to do back to back blog entries.
March 11 update – Another apology for posting the photos late because I only had the iPad with me and the WordPress app for iOS was not keen on the formatting.

Sort of live blogging over on the iPad but it is slightly failing on me. Using Safari on the iPad to get started. It is 3:35pm and hanging at the blogger zone at The 31 Genie Awards red carpet.

Live Blogging at the Red Carpet for the 31 Genie Awards.

Almost 3:45pm and there’s not much activity happening.
4:08pm. The red carpet has started. Strombo is here.
4:13pm. I finally got to meet George Stroumboulopoulos and had a short chat with him.
4:16pm. Just saw Remy Girard of InSecurity and Alan Hawco from the CBC’s Wednesday show, Republic of Doyle. Here’s the photo with Alan Hawco.

4:30pm. Got to see Shannon Tweed, Brett Wilson (from Dragons’ Den) and Kristin Kreuk. Pictured with Wilson.


4:33pm. Gordon Pinsent just went to the Blogger Zone and said hi.

4:38pm. Gilles Ducceppe and the director of Incendie walked to the red carpet.
4:42pm. It was great to see Elliott Brood on the red carpet (photo shown).

4:50pm. The CBC head brass arrive on the red carpet.
4:54pm. Got to see the 2010 Polaris Music Prize winner, Karkwa and kindly approached us at the Blogger Zone table. Pictured with Karkwa.

4:56pm. Ottawa mayor, Jim Watson is here.
5:03pm. Just saw Roger Cross, from 24. He went through the red carpet.

5:13pm. Actor, Bruce Greenwood arrived to the red carpet.
5:27pm. Looks like the celebrities have all arrived to the red carpet.

Done with the red carpet festivities.

Made my way to the press room (around 6pm).
Got to see winners from the team of Incendies. William Shatner made his way in the press room, post awards show.

In closing, I had some nerves before going to the Genie Awards but I had great fun being at the Blogger Zone table and some of the celebrities were surprised and astounded with myself and two other people. It brought a unique element as the audience is catering to a tech crowd. The press room was pretty good with Wi-Fi but there were big time glitches with the audio from the awards ceremony, but it was eventually fixed up. The afterparty was a nice setting to see as celebs mingle around and trying out foods. It was a nice experience to attend a film award.
I forgot to put a link of the Genie Award winners from any news source. Feeling a bit clumsy in leaving it out.
