A big congrats from myself and the whole YOUNG & RECKLESS team to Sierra Pitkin who plays OLIVIA, and Paige Bateman who plays STACEY, for their 1st annual The MICs International Awards Gala For Youth nominations for their work on YOUNG & RECKLESS.
The Mics mission is to “recognize, honour and reward Canadian and International youth in achieving excellence in the entertainment industry.”
Sierra is nominated for Best Actress in a Web based Series in the 15-20 age category. Paige is nominated for Best Actress in a Webseries for a Principal/Supporting Role. Both are talents to be reckoned with. Paige was 11-years-old playing a 13-year-old when we shot the show last spring, and she’s a top notch professional, no doubt about it.
Alongside Sierra for Best Actress are Jaslyn Collis (SHIFT THE SHOW), and Cassandra Tusa (JENNY & JEFF). Alongside Paige for Best Supporting, the nominees are Roxy Bellum (ULTIMATE TRAP), Amy Polczer (LAME PARENTS), and Jaslyn Collis (A.N.X.O.).
Paige is also nominated for Best Actress in a Short Film Age 11 (LOVE, COLIN), Best Actress in a Short Film Age 11 (EVERYBODY SAYS), Young Filmmaker/Director Ages 5-11 (PAIGE’S PANTRY), Best Actress Short Film Age 10 (EVIL PLANS)
The Mics will be held May 27th, 2017 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Congratulations and good luck to all The Mics nominees.
