The Baby Formula and Nurse.Fighter.Boy earned multiple nominations for its cast as ACTRA Toronto on Tuesday revealed the picks for its annual awards.

Rosemary Dunsmore (St. Urbain’s Horseman) and Megan Fahlenbock (MVP) received nods for their performance in the comedy Baby, in which they play two women in love and desperate to have their own biological child. They are up against fellow female contenders Sarah Gadon (Flashpoint), Shauna MacDonald (Loving Loretta) and Nurse.Fighter.Boy‘s Karen LeBlanc.

Nurse also snagged nods for Daniel J. Gordon and Clark Johnson in the category of outstanding male performance, pitting them against veteran Nicholas Campbell for the mini The Englishman’s Boy and Jonas Chernick of action series The Border — both of which aired on CBC. Joris Jarsky of the feature film Toronto Stories rounds out the nominees.

YTV’s animated series Ruby Gloom received two nominations in the voice performance category, for Emily Hampshire and Adrian Truss. Also nom’ed are Rob Tinkler for Cyberchase, Joanne Vannicola for Toot & Puddle and Jamie Watson for Peep and the Big Wide World.

Peter Keleghan will be honored with the ACTRA award of excellence at the Toronto ceremony on Feb. 20. Teresa Pavlinek of The Jane Show will host.

Meanwhile, Nurse.Fighter.Boy is set to open in Toronto and Vancouver on Feb. 6 through Mongrel Media, while The Baby Formula is tentatively scheduled for a summer release via Grindstone Media.
