37th Gemini Awards | The 31st Precinct Armed Robbery

Sorry Sorry? District 31 Didn’t he win the Gémeaux award for best telenovela on Sunday? And this is the slow series, but correct. Us of the award-winning Illico Club, a production that Quebecor pulled the plug on even before it ended on traditional TVA airwaves?

Posted yesterday at 23:47

This is true armed robbery, unwarranted snobbery. Yes I saw it Us, a confidential title only offered at Videotron’s Club illico. It’s good, but never as good as District 31Luc Dionne’s phenomenal show that captivated 1.8 million addicts until the city’s most popular station closed.

Obviously, the members of the Academy smoked very bad broth, which clouded their judgment. District 31 It deserved this trophy for its episodes populated with endearing characters and peppered with disturbing twists and turns.

At the evening gala, the author Luc Dionne was even awarded for the quality of the texts of his crime series. And what makes a compelling story on television? A cleverly crafted scene.

Produced by veterans Anne Boyer and Michel d’Astous, Us tells the intertwined fate of five 23-year-old young adults, who rub shoulders in a former industrial building in the Saint-Henri neighborhood. Dominick Parenteau-Lebeuf’s plot flirts with esotericism and the supernatural in a super-polished production by Yannick Savard, also a Gemini winner for his superb images.

Even more curious? Us it only has 12 one-hour episodes. How did this show compete in the long-running annual series category like District 31 Y Lifetime ? Technically, Us enters the sector of the shortest seasonal series at that’s how i love you. The Academy has visibly twisted its regulations to accommodate Uswhose final 12 episodes will land on Club illico later this fall.

Speaking of strangeness, three words: Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge. the host of masked singers he was invited up on stage – his intervention of more than three minutes was not planned at all – to deliver confusing and unconnected messages about the provincial elections and the importance of voting massively… for the ‘Academy. Great discomfort.





What exactly did you want to report? And why interrupt the emcee like that? Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge did not respond to my request for an interview on Sunday night.

In his endless smell of rising reckoning, the TVA headliner also sent a crack to the helmsman of everybody talks about it, a valve that came out, again, from left field. “A composition role is not Louis Morissette crying in his big cabin. That would be Guy A. Lepage kind and humble. That is a composition role”, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge launched in front of a room that laughed yellow. It was embarrassing for him.

With a duration of more than 2 h 20 min, this 37me The Gemini Awards Gala was peppered with weird moments, let’s face it. Like the one where Jean-Philippe Wauthier replaced Gildor Roy on short notice. The new host of Towerand ex-commander Chiasson, withdrew from Gemini on Saturday, I was told.

High-spirited and lively, Véronique Cloutier, the queen of replicas, never seemed to shake. She even makes her shine brighter when she leaves her text.

The Quebec TV party began with an excellent vignette where Véronique Cloutier in mode bitch he threatened to demolish all the finalists by creating a “scandalissimo” on the floor of the Place des Arts. A video full of good flashes, very rhythmic and fun.

Alas, in front of TV’s crowned bosses, this “not fine” number fizzled out fast. Not even the interventions of Mani Soleymanlou, Guy Jodoin and José Gaudet, who begged the presenter to be really bad, saved the sequence.

However, Vero had obtained permission to fire stinging arrows at the UDA members, but ignored it and opted for her trademark cheesy choreography, which was superfluous. And almost 15 minutes for an introduction is too much.

Strange idea also to start the evening with a prize that crowns an absentee, namely Patrick Huard, the meritorious winner of Tower of VAT The emotion will never rise in the room with a pre-recorded video.

On the other hand, a good stage idea is to place the nominees next to a screen, directly on the stage. This allowed to insufflate a beautiful rhythm to the gala.

Another beautiful flash: the sequence of small tanners, where Véronique Cloutier questioned the children of the nominees in the games category. cute as nothing

In addition to the defeat of District 31Guy Jodoin’s victoryAlertswho preempted Roy Dupuis from Lifetime and Emile Proulx-Cloutier of perfect moments, created a big surprise. I admit, I’m not a big fan ofAlertsdespite the improvements that were made between the two seasons.

hurry, congratulations to that’s how i love you Y audrey came backtwo great series, and my apologies for doubting the formidable Sandrine Bisson by predicting victory, in the dramatic series, for Marilyn Castonguay, our favorite Huguette Delisle.

The CA disputesoverdose

One candidate (Marc-Olivier) was criticized for “seeming to read books”, the worst, the worst “detour” to break the “vibe” in double occupancy. Jay Du Temple’s hair changed color and was cut more often than the number of slow-motion close-ups in the cans of Bulles de nuit.

And a board of directors of four bachelors was chosen specifically to pierce the sails of this immense love catamaran sponsored by Couche-Tard. to my delight, overdose promises to be as colorful as the satin dresses of the eight girls who chose their seven gentlemen, on Sunday night, on the airwaves of Noovo.

In 90 well-edited minutes hosted by a very fit presenter, in every sense of the word, the red carpet ofoverdose he unwound the edge of multiple twists and even dabbled in poetry, yes, yes, when 26-year-old Marc-Olivier strangely decided to give up his single bed in the cubic villa in Martinique. “I know it’s the end of my adventure for overdose, but the adventure of our lives continues”, whispers Marc-Olivier, the Fred Pellerin of Saint-Bruno, a few minutes before one of his companions philosophizes: “whatever happens, fat man”. Genius.

And as 23-year-old model Florence Belzile repeated, a kind of mantra for overdose, “me, my gender, is the vibe.” the vibes or the vibes, the genre fluctuates according to the episodes. But the important thing is that a child never comes to scrape this sacrosanct vibes, Knight. When the maker of high-end saddles (vulgar gag already done, thanks) Mégane, 26, learned that cowboy Jimy was the father of little Liam, 4, he hissed, in a vernacular : “a boy who has a little boyIt’s shit, shit.”

Our good country singer Jimy was then fired for his paternity, but was able to return thanks to the divine intervention of the Board ofoverdose, the great novelty of this tropical edition. Made up of four people, this AC acts like a Greek choir and comments on the action, like us in our living rooms. Isaack could star Vampire Diaries ! Bartender Olivier looks like the Wish version of my grandfather!

Then, 24-year-old Felix, the chemical process guy, was labeled “the puff-eared guy” by Ally, the double troublemaker.

If the face of Ally, the 22-year-old butler, is familiar to you, it is because she participated in the docureality Flat from Club illico in 2019. Ally documented her transition process and later carried her old name.

AC Operationoverdose has not been explained in detail and the production surely reserves the right to modify the articles of incorporation.

Pearl necklaces for men, RW & CO becoming the new Ernest, girls giving each other “my boyfriend”, guys calling each other “big” all the time (inflated), I feel like we’re going to rock this fall. , men vibes in perspective, to cite (insert here the name of any competitor ofOD Martinique).
