The winner of the award in 2019, (1) Letting go is almost assured a nomination in 2020. The series of Isabelle Langlois has left the air in great form this winter, at the end of four solid seasons. Like last year, (2) Leo should be retained. Same thing for (3) Me do you hear ? The second season of the adventures of Ada, Fabiola and Carolanne had a beautiful be a lot more dramatic than comedic, the proposal of Télé-Québec will remain in this category, since the regulations of the Academy are clear : “A production that included a dramatic one year will not be able to register in the comedy the following year, and vice versa. “
Shunned last year, (4) Discussions with my parents will, in all likelihood, his first nomination in this category. Remains to be seen how series – between The House-Blue, In any case , and Boomerang – will have the fifth and last place. For its originality, (5) Home-Blue gets our vote of confidence.
Best drama serial
The competition promises to be particularly noted. In all likelihood, the platforms of video-on-demand should capture at least four of the five available seats. Club illico will make his presence felt with (1) My son, this psychological drama involving that tells the story of a young man (Antoine L’écuyer) who has schizophrenia. The first season of the excellent thriller police officer (2) The fault, with Isabel Richer and Alexandre Landry, should also obtain his pass. In HERE Tou.TV Extra, it is hard to see how the Academy could ignore (3) Fragile, the captivating series of Serge Boucher (Confessions, Lights), starring Marc-André Grondin and Pier-Luc Funk. Same thing for (4) It is like that that I love you, the offer criminalo-comico-retro tandem François Létourneau and Jean-François Rivard.
That will fill in the only place available ? The third season of various Facts that have created much less of the surf, the fight will be between Breaks, Epidemic , and (5) Amber Alert. The drama judicial Isabelle Pelletier and Daniel Thibault has never been among the darlings of the jury. The voters may be willing to buy back their forgotten past by retaining (with reason) his final season… unless they fear retaliation ferrets ofEpidemic and choose to reward the gift of clairvoyance of the authors Annie Piérard, Bernard Dansereau and Étienne Piérard-Dansereau.
But according to our analysis, this is Amber Alert , which will pass to the next round. For we have moved and held in suspense for 10 weeks last fall.
Best drama series annual
Last year, (1) The blue hour, (2) 5th place, (3) another story, , Unit 9 and O’ were named. The first three will find easily their place in the sun. The last two who left the waves, they will be replaced by (4) Whole life and… (5) District 31. This year, the police series by Luc Dionne has been made in this category because it would have been the only fiction in the fray on the side of the drama series daily. The Academy has moved its rival, 2019, Clash, in youth, since with 24 episodes, it was not eligible on the side of the day-to-day, which require a minimum of 25 episodes.
