9 nominations for Funny Boy at Canadian Screen Awards

View(s):

‘Funny Boy’, Deepa Mehta’s adaptation of the 1994 Shyam Selvadurai novel, is among the front-runners at the Canadian Screen Awards with nine nominations in the Film category. Apart from best motion picture, Funny Boy has been nominated for best direction, best supporting actress (for Agam Darshi), best adapted screenplay, sound editing, sound mixing, achievement in music: original score, makeup and best visual effects.?? The news is heartening coming three months after the film was disqualified as Canada’s nomination for the Oscars for Best International Feature- because it had too much English dialogue- 63% whereas at least 50% of the foreign language was required.

Funny Boy is the story of ‘Arjie’ – a gay Tamil boy growing up in precarious times.

Funny Boy has also won a spot on the Toronto International Film Festival’s best-of-the-year list.
