"I forgot to thank the people of Canada," Reitman, son of film-maker Ivan, said backstage. "I say to you now, this award is dedicated to the people of Canada, the great people of British Columbia who provided my crew."

Reitman also praised his Canadian actors Ellen Page and Michael Cera, who sang the show-ending Moldy Peaches song, Anyone Else But You, at the end of the movie.

"It's a scary thing when you ask your actors to suddenly close a movie in song, fortunately I had Ellen and Michael who were terrific musicians and singers, they learned the song immediately," said Reitman backstage.
