Official Statement by Andrea Martin

"I'm so disappointed that I can't co-host the Genies with my friend George Stroumboulopoulos as planned. I was in Toronto, in my fabulous Lucian Matis gown, rehearsing... and I got a call about a prior work commitment that has been rescheduled and that I am obligated to show up for. You'll still see me in the show, and I will be there in spirit to support all the extraordinary artists in the Canadian film industry who we will be honouring and celebrating tomorrow night." - Andrea Martin

Official Statement by Helga Stephenson, ACCT interim CEO

"We're sad that Andrea Martin won't be with us in person at the Genies tomorrow night but we're thrilled she'll still be part of the show. Andrea has been presented with an amazing opportunity and we'd never stand in her way. That's show biz," said Helga Stephenson, ACCT interim CEO.
