Carl Bessai’s Sisters & Brothers dominated the inaugural UBCP/ACTRA Awards in Vancouver Sunday night, with Camille Sullivan winning for best actress and Kacey Rohl taking top honours for best newcomer.

The Amanda Crew and Cory Monteith-starring feature, the third installment in Bessai’s family triology, earlier this year won big at the Leo Awards in British Columbia.

The UBCP/ACTRA award for best actor went to Stephen Lobo for his star turn in Mike Clattenburg’s Afghan Luke, which was shot largely in British Columbia.

And the best voice trophy went to Andrea Libman for work on My Little Pony, while Phil Mitchell won the UBCP/ACTRA award for best stunt for his performance in True Justice.

Elsewhere, the John Juliani award of excellence went to Melissa Stubbs, while the Lorena Gale woman of distinction award was picked up by Carol Whiteman.
