Kardinal Offishall joins cast of artists performing at 31st Genie Awards in Ottawa March 10 [News]

Ottawa, ONKardinal Offishall will join a cast of other Canadian actors and musicians to celebrate Canada’s film industry at the 31st Annual Genie Awards. The star-studded event will be going down Thursday, March 10 at 8 p.m. and it will be aired live on CBC. The event will be hosted by everyone’s favourite typecast – the infamous William Shatner. Aside from Kardinal, we’re not sure if Canadian hip-hop will be represented in any other manner but Kardi will definitely be keeping good company: Canadian screen legends Gordon Pinsent (Away From Her) and Rémy Girard (Incendies), Bruce Greenwood (Barney’s Version), young starlets Jodelle Ferland (Twilight Eclipse) and Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield), CBC’s George Stroumboulopoulos and Jian Ghomeshi, Zaib Shaikh (Midnight’s Children), Genie Award Best Actor nominee Jay Baruchel (The Trotsky) and many more. Canadian-born media heavyweight Bonnie Fuller will also take part in the celebration with an exciting live presentation of the User’s Choice Award winner. The event will also feature special appearances by Norman Jewison, Joshua Jackson, Dustin Hoffman, Christopher Plummer and more.

Kardi will be joining a special musical tribute to the year’s Best Motion Picture nominees. He’ll be joining the previously announced slate of musical artists – including Melissa Etheridge, Serena Ryder, Johnny Reid and Karkwa – to applaud the past 31 years of Canadian movies.
