The Leo Awards: The Chip Butcher Quartet sing about Continuum

0

During the intermission in the Leo Awards, The Chip Butcher Quartet came on stage and sung a couple of songs about some of our favourite TV Shows, first up was Arrow. Then, Chip went into the audience to get some suggestions for the next song.

Chip chanced upon table ten where Simon Barry and the rest of the Continuum cast were sitting. When Simon told Chip what show he was with, the audience started clapping and cheering. Obviously Continuum is a much loved show. However, Simon said the show was about ponies, which had the audience laughing.

The Leo Awards aren’t complete without Vancouver’s own Sci Fi Queen, Amanda Tapping. Last year, she presented the awards along with Robin Dunne.

This year however, Amanda was there as an award presenter. We caught her arrival on the red carpet just before we decided to head into the Gala Celebration.

The Leo Awards were a bundle of laughs last night with Brent Butt and Nancy Robertson at the helm to guide us, but a highlight was a surprise musical number by none other than Granny from Once Upon a Time.

That’s right, the wonderful woman we all know and love as Granny on the hit ABC TV Show, Beverley Elliott was there to sing a song about “Filming in BC”.

Richard Harmon along with his sister, Jessica were the first two presenters at the Leo Awards last night and they were a fun pair. I’d love to see them take on the hosting duties at the Leo’s one year.

But that’s not what this post is about. Richard Harmon won a Leo Award at the Gala Ceremony that took place at the Westin Bayshore Hotel last night (June 8th, 2013) for his role as Julian Randall. The award was for Best Supporting Performance in a Dramatic Series.
