No moose were harmed in the taking of the above photo, unless you count the one that has a thing for Gary. Hey, you try to come up with multiple Canadian jokes in a single week.

Adam Feeny aka Frank Dukes won Songwriter of the Year. He also took home awards for "Havana" (Pop Music Award), "Congratulations" and "Fake Love" (Rap Music Awards). 

Other Sony/ATV winners included Alessia Cara, who won the International Achievement Award as well as the International Song Award and a Dance Music Award for “Stay”, Daniel Caesar who won the Breakout Award, Drake who won a Rap Music Award for “Fake Love” and Shawn Mendes collaborator Geoff Warburton who won a Pop Music Award for “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”.
