Ellen Page wins gold for Best Female Film/TV Actor & Best Halifamous Person! Best of Halifax – The Coast
Best of Halifax 2014 Readers’ Choice City Awards. Ellen came in first place for both Best Female Film/TV Actor and Best Halifamous Person!
Best Halifamous Person: Sure, she starred in one of the summer’s superhero juggernaut blockbusters. But what really made our love for Ellen Page shine brighter this year was her courageous coming-out speech back in February. “I’m here today because I am gay,” Page told the attendees at a conference for LGBT youth, saying she hoped her announcement might make a difference for others. “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission.” As far as an ambassador to the world goes, Halifax could do a lot worse than the talent, thoughtfulness and bravery of our very own Ellen.
Best Female Film/TV Actor: Once again demonstrating her mutant power for box office blockbusters, Ellen Page suited-up again as Kitty Pryde and stood tall against Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman in the money train that was X-Men: Days of Future Past. Page is also trying her hand at producing with next year’s sci-fi drama Into the Forest co-starring Evan Rachel Wood. But our fave Page project this year has to go to her Funny or Die short with Kate Mara, Tiny Detectives.
