Cara Gee - Empire of Dirt
Named as one of Canada's rising stars at TIFF 2013, Cara Gee earned her nomination through her performance in Empire of Dirt, where she plays single mother Lena. The movie was filmed over three weeks at Kensington Market in Toronto and at Keswick, Ontario.
Cara must be super excited about her nomination, as Empire of Dirt marks her feature film debut - she is primarily known for her performances on-stage. Fingers crossed, Cara!
Tatiana Maslany - Cas & Dylan
Golden-Globe-nominated Tatiana is having a good (and busy!) few months. Her performance in Cas & Dylan has already earned her a Philip Borsos Award.
Tatiana also stars in TV show Orphan Black, which leads the CSA noms-list with 14 nominations. Adding to her awards, this performance also won her a Critics' Choice Television Award and TCA Award.
So, who's your pick? Newbie Cara or golden girl Tatiana? Vote above!
One last observation... Both Cara and Tatiana seem to be big fans of the sweeping side updo . If you can't pick between their performances, just choose your favorite hairstyle!
