Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan dominates nominations for the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards, with 13 for his film Mommy. The impressive list, revealed Jan 13, includes nominations for best feature, director, original screenplay, editing and costume design.

At the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, Dolan spoke to Daily Xtra about Mommy. The film premiered at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Jury Prize, making Dolan the youngest Canadian to compete in the main program and take home an award. 

David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, a Hollywood satire, trails Mommy with 11 nominations, including one for best actress for Julianne Moore.

The awards ceremony will take place March 1. A list of all nominations is available here.
