2010 Gemini Award Nominees on Home Video

Announced earlier this week are the Gemini Award nominees (Gemini = TV, not film, not music, right?).

The awards show will be broadcast on Global and Showcase Nov. 13. The full list is available as a PDF file at the organization’s website, and I’ve snipped and pasted the main categories, plus the best music nominees. Note: titles available on home video are hyperlinked to Amazon.ca for further info.
