BLAME CANADA!
Alanis, Shania, Sarah Score at Juno Awards
It was the same old Canuck faces that nabbed the lion’s share of the honors at the 29th annual Juno Awards celebration, Canada's equivalent to the Grammy Awards, held last weekend in Toronto.

This year's most-nominated artist, Alanis Morissette, took home trophies for best album and best video. Shania Twain got the nods for songwriting and country female artist, Sarah McLachlan received international achievement kudos and Bryan Adams took the award for best male artist.

But the Junos shone on some newcomers as well. Tal Bachman, son of classic-rock journeyman Randy Bachman, took awards for best new solo artist and best producer for "She’s So High" and "If You Sleep," both from his self-titled Columbia debut.

Montreal-based R&B/pop duo Sky took the best new group prize, while Chantal Kreviazuk garnered laurels for best female artist and best pop/adult album for her sophomore disc, "Colour Moving and Still."

Other winners included the Backstreet Boys, whose "Millennium" won best-selling album, Diana Krall for best vocal jazz album ("When I Look in Your Eyes") and the Matthew Good Band, which received nods for best group and best rock album ("Beautiful Midnight"). The Tragically Hip, well-known to Juno voters, took the award for best single with "Bobcaygeon."

This year 31 awards were handed out on Saturday at a dinner at Toronto's Metro Convention Center and 11 more on Sunday night at the Skydome.

There’s been no word yet on Canadian plans to launch a full-scale nuclear attack if the "South Park" soundtrack wins an Oscar.
