Drama CONTINENTAL: UN FILM SANS FUSIL (a Film Without Guns) emerged the big winner at the Jutra Awards in Quebec, Canada on Sunday (09Mar08), after winning four prizes including the coveted prize for Best Picture. The movie also took home awards for Best Screenplay, Best Director for Stephane Lafleur and Best Supporting Actor for Real Bosse. It wasn't the only quadruple-winner of the night - the Keira Knightley-starring period drama Silk claimed honours for technical skill, including Best Cinematography and Best Costume. But the Jutra Awards proved to be less fruitful for comedy/drama Les 3 p'tits cochones (The 3 Little Pigs), which won just one of the 13 gongs it was nominated for. It was recognised for the Billet d'or (Golden ticket) trophy, which is handed to the most successful domestic film at the Quebec box office after scooping profits of $4.5 million (GBP2.25 million) in 2007. Meanwhile, Roy Dupuis was named Best Actor for his role in Shake Hands With the Devil, and Best Actress went to Guylaine Tremblay for her part in Contre toute esperance.
