I Watch Catherine Too.

January 30, 2008 — 1 Comment

Anyone ever watched the Franco-Canadian show Catherine? TV-5 Latin America shows it, and I was trying to get some info online, but there wasn’t much. (to read a post about it click here)

CBC - Catherine Cast

Catherine is a pretty funny show done in French-speaking Canada, by CBC. It stars Sylvie Moreau as Catherine, a sassy and wacky advertiser at Mirage-Image Agency. Alongside Catherine, we see her landlady, her ex boyfriend, the Chinese owner of the grocery, etc. Oh! and don’t forget about her freak-o-megalomaniac flatmate, Sophie (Marie-Hélène Thibault).

If you’re a non-French speaker, or most likely are an English speaker… you can sign this petition to get it on DVD.

GG nods were announced this morning, see complete list here.

Marion Cotillard got a nod, WOOO for Best Actress Comedy/Musical – WOOOOOOO. Allez, allez, Marion! x’D Julie Chrisie for Away from Her got a nod for Best Actress Drama, so there won’t be any competition there, haha…

Also nominated WOOO are Johnny Depp for Sweeney Todd, Ryan Gosling for Lars and the Real Girl, Ellen Page for Juno, Amy Adams for Enchanted… Juno got a nod in the Screenplay category, and Best Picture… Sweeney Todd got a Best Picture (Comedy/Musical), and some Best Foreign nods go to Persepolis (!!), The Kite Runner and Lust, Caution…

Emmanuelle Seigner looks like an older version of Carly Pope, non?

*EDIT*

IMDb changed it’s image gallery, and photos are gone. Plus, I don’t think they liked me linking to their files~ Here are some photos, though I couldn’t find the same pictures I previously showed.
