Huge congratulations to one of our favourite NL fellas - Allan Hawco.

Playback's Canadian Film and Television Hall of Fame has just bestowed the honour of their Outstanding Achievement Award on the boy from Bell Island.

Allan Hawco at the 2011 Gemini Awards“Amid the red carpet whirl of TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), it’s important to pause and reflect on the remarkable accomplishments that went into creating this world class film & TV industry, and to celebrate the people who helped build it…through their vision, talent and perseverance, they’ve elevated Canada on the world stage, and created opportunities for the next generation.” says Mary Maddever, publisher of Playback, Canada’s film and television industry news source.

The Playback Outstanding Achievement Award is presented to a Canadian too young to be inducted to the Hall of Fame (based on the length of their career) whose success and accomplishments this year really stood out – so you’ll get no argument from us. As the Co-Creator, Executive Producer, Head Writer, Showrunner and Star of the hit series Republic of Doyle - Allan Hawco gets our vote every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

Allan, along with this year's other honorees, will be celebrated at a gala taking place on September 15, 2011 at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto to be hosted by Colin Mochrie and Art Hindle.

Our heartfelt congratulations to you Mr. Hawco - We celebrate you & we salute you! SABS

  1. Where did this guy even come from? A few years ago, I didn't know Allan Hawco, and today, he's like my favourite Canadian on the planet! I'm very happy to see him get this kind of recognition! I hope someday Republic of Doyle will be seen in the U.S., because I have friends in America who would LOVE his show!

    Thanks for passing along this great news, SABS!

  2. Some of us Yanks do have the privilege of watching Republic of Doyle. In the Detroit area we view it through CBC via the local cable companies. Oh yeah!

  3. Well done Allan!!!! To say that we are proud is an understatement!! In many ways you have, single handedly, been responsible for putting our beautiful province on the world stage! You are an inspiration to islanders (the big island province and the small island of Bell Island) young and old!! Thank you for always remembering your roots, proudly showcasing your home and remaining true to who you are! You are indeed a deserving recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award!!
