» Canadian Comedy Awards fetes Jason Reitman

Montreal-born 'Juno' director given a Beaver

TORONTO -- Canada has finally embraced Jason Reitman's Oscar-winning "Juno" as its own.

The Canadian Comedy Awards on Friday night gave Montreal-born Reitman a Beaver for best "pretty funny film directing," and Halifax-born Ellen Page a trophy for best "pretty funny female actress."

To Reitman's frustration, "Juno" was excluded from competition at the Genies last March because it was U.S. financed. The Canadian film awards made the ruling despite the fact that Reitman shot "Juno" in British Columbia with a Canadian crew and a Canadian lead.

Also getting Beavers Friday night was Vancouver-born Seth Rogen, who triumphed in the "pretty funny comic person" category and for best screenplay for "Superbad."

"Superbad" also earned Brampton, Ontario-born actor Michael Cera the Beaver for male actor of the year in the film category.

The comedy awards were handed out in Regina, Saskatchewan and aired on Canada's the Comedy Network.
