The main winner was Christopher Nolan's Inception. It had led the film nominations with six and came away with wins for Best Film and Best Overall Script. It was the only multiple award-winner of the evening. The acting prizes went to Johnny Depp for Alice In Wonderland and Chloe Grace Moretz for Kick-Ass.
Although Doctor Who led the television nominees with a total of nine, its only win was for composer Murray Gold. The award for Best Television Series went to Stargate Universe, while the acting awards were claimed by Adam Baldwin for Chuck, and Anna Torv for Fringe.
Interestingly, the TCON Promotional Society which organizes the Constellation Awards publishes the voting results. Many people mistakenly believe that awards presenters think as a block, or "snub" certain nominees. The results show that 4 of the nine categories were decided by a mere 1 percent. Anna Torv even had two nominees within 1 percentage point of her: Julia Benz in No Ordinary Family and Karen Gillan of Doctor Who.
The winners for Outstanding Canadian Contribution to Science Fiction Film or Television were InnerSPACE hosts Teddy Wilson & Ajay Fry, who also hosted the Constellation Awards ceremony itself.
