Dolan & co.
Anne Dorval, Suzanne Clément, Xavier Dolan and Antoine-Olivier Pilon at Cannes 2014

It won’t come as a surprise to anyone who saw Mommy and/or watches award shows that Xavier Dolan and his crew of actors (Anne Dorval, Suzanne Clément, Antoine-Olivier Pilon) almost swept the film categories — almost because Jay Baruchel sits atop the Best Actor category, presumably on the strength of his absurd magic-realist sitcom Man Seeking Woman (and probably This Is the End, a contemporary classic). And even Dolan’s other 2014 film, the very different but just as rad Tom à la Ferme, made the Best Film list, an extension of the sweep. Boo to everyone who voted for American films in that category — come on guys, this is the Best of MTL! It’s 514 or nothing (except 438, if you must). And as predictable as the Best Museum list is, congrats to Fresh Paint for topping the Best Gallery list and making the Best Art Exhibit Top 5, too.
