An interview with Genie Awards CEO Sara Morton

I had a chance to interview the CEO of the Genie Awards, Sara Morton, just ten minutes ago. When her publicist sent me emails asking if I would be willing to interview Ms. Morton, she suggested that perhaps she might have some predictions about which films would win Canada's Oscars, and what celebrities might grace our fine town and the aviation museum with their presence. It turns out neither of those things was the case. In fact, she said that she couldn't tell us who would be in attendance. Or who was hosting the program. Or predict who the winners might be. The Genies, you see, are perhaps the most secretive Awards Show in history. Which may be why no one knows they even exist, or anything at all about them. Did you know they were going to be on TV? Yeah - Global TV! And some other network. Did you know they were in Ottawa? Yep, they are. At the Airplane Museum. If you want to check out one of the most uninformative interviews ever, click here:

Then click on the bottom interview that doesn't look like the others at all. New Cynical Cinema website, many changes still to be made so it looks like it did two weeks ago.
