UBCP/ACTRA members will honour their own at the 2016 UBCP/ACTRA Awards, the nominees for which were announced this morning.

With a self-stated mission to “build the BC star system,” the organization annually honours five members for work done in the past year.  This awards show is the only peer-adjudicated performer awards show in BC, lending what UBCP/ACTRA calls in its press release “a strong sense of professional pride to the nominees and winners.”

Among the nominees this year – in categories covering acting, voice, and stunts – are Jacob Tremblay (Room), Juan Riedinger (The Romeo Section), Camille Sullivan (The Birdwatcher), Leif Havdale (Arrow), and Andrea Libman (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic).

The awards will be handed out at the Vancouver Playhouse on Nov. 12.
