2010 was a bittersweet year in the world of Canadian cinema and Canuck movie stars. We gained a world-class cinema shrine in the form of the TIFF Lightbox in Toronto, but we lost our favourite funnyman, Leslie Nielsen.

Canadian cinema's roller-coaster year could perhaps best be personified by Canadian superhunk Ryan Reynolds, who had quite the 2010. He was named People's Sexiest Man Alive, only to have his marriage to Scarlett Johansson fall apart almost immediately afterwards. Poor, heartbroken 'Green Lantern' (not to be confused with 'The Green Hornet,' played by fellow Canadian Seth Rogen). But we can't feel too sorry for him -- his newly acquired Sexiest Man credentials will no doubt help him in the romance department.

As the year draws to a close, it's that time again. Yes, recap time. Without further ado, here's a rundown of the most notable highs and lows in 2010 for Hollywood North.
