Charlotte Cardin Wins Big At 51st JUNO Awards


Charlotte Cardin and The Weeknd were big winners Saturday night at the 51st JUNO Awards in Toronto.

Cardin was named Artist of the Year and won both Pop Album (for Phoenix) and Pop Single (“Meaningless”) while The Weeknd earned the award for Contemporary R&B Recording (“Take My Breath”) and was named Songwriter of the Year.

Winners in 41 categories were announced on the first night of the JUNOs, including 24 first-time winners. Inuk singer Susan Aglukark was honoured with the Humanitarian Award and Dallas Green was presented with the MusiCounts Inspired Minds Ambassador Award. This year’s Walt Grealis Special Achievement Award was posthumously presented to Denise Jones.

Awards in two categories typically dominated by men – Producer of the Year and Recording Engineer of the Year – went to women: WondaGurl (aka Ebony Oshunrinde) and Hill Kourkoutis, respectively. Kourkooutis is the only winner in her category since it was created in 1976.

Filmmaker Xavier Dolan’s Quebec-shot visual for Adele’s “Easy On Me” was named Video of the Year and Olivia Rodrigo’s debut Sour won International Album of the Year.

Remaining JUNO Awards will be handed out Sunday night.
