Canadian police drama FLASHPOINT dominated the annual Gemini Awards on Saturday (14Nov09), taking home three of the night's major awards.
The cop show landed the Best Dramatic Series honour, while its head Kelly Makin grabbed the award for Best Direction at the ceremony in Calgary.
The series' star Enrico Colantoni was named Best Actor - and his co-star Hugh Dillon is delighted with the hat-trick of awards.
He says, "I think great stories are great stories and Flashpoint has an incredible emotional core but it has this action element. I think that's why it appeals to so many people."
Other winners at the annual awards included the Rick Mercer Report for Best Comedy, while George Stroumboulopoulos was honoured as Best Talk Show Host for a second year running.
