Twelve Sheridan alumni win Canadian Screen Awards

May 27, 2021

Sheridan alumni triumphed at the Canadian Screen Awards this year, with 12 graduates winning awards across seven categories.

While some alumni continued to earn laurels for their work on established series such as Paw Patrol and Vikings, new achievers added their names to the prestigious CSA awardees’ list with their creativity and talent.

“Congratulations to all our alumni who won CSAs this year. We are very proud of their role in driving innovative content in Canada’s media industry,” says Dr. Janet Morrison, Sheridan’s President and Vice Chancellor. “The success of our graduates is an inspiration to our current students to move forward with confidence, knowing that their hard work will be recognized even during challenging times.”

The CSAs celebrate Canadian productions and talent in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes in film, television and digital media. Traditionally, the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television presents the CSAs during a series of events that culminate in a gala in Toronto. This is the second year in which celebrations were held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with presentations live-streamed on the Canadian Academy Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels.

Sheridan’s alumni winners include:

Ian Rankin (Media Arts ’92) for Best Sound, Fiction for Vikings

Maria Gordon (Computer Animation ’98) for Best Visual Effects for Vikings

Kyle Peters (Media Arts ’08), Patton Rodrigues (Media Arts ’12), Ryan Ongaro (Media Arts ’12), Timothy Muirhead (Media Arts ’98), and Luke Dante (Media Arts ’16) for Best Sound, Animation for Paw Patrol.
