Toronto native Mae Martin will host the 2024 Canadian Screen Awards.

Organizers of Canada's biggest film and television awards bash say the comedian will MC a gala in front of an audience in Toronto, which will be whittled down to an hour-long special that will air hours after the event.

It will be the second year in a row that the celebration won't be broadcast live.

The Screen Awards have traditionally been a star-studded live show in front of an audience.

Academy CEO Tammy Frick said pre-taping allows the gala to showcase more “industry-heavy” elements that might exhaust a TV audience.

Last year's Screen Awards were hosted by Canadian comic Samantha Bee, who taped her segments remotely in New York, weeks in advance of the show.
