Red carpet fashion highlights from the 2024 Canadian Screen Awards | CBC Life



Canadian Screen Week kicked off on Sunday, May 26, and culminated in today’s Canadian Screen Awards Gala broadcast, hosted by comedian Mae Martin and available on CBC and CBC Gem

The awards recognize outstanding achievements in Canadian film, television and digital media, drawing stars like director Denis Villeneuve, who received the Academy Icon award. Throughout the week, the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television honoured winners at the CBC headquarters in Toronto.

It’s been a week of celebration and standout fashion moments. Here are some of the must-see looks from the 2024 Canadian Screen Awards red and gold glitter carpets.
