Regarding the Polaris Award, she added, “I always thought it was something meant for people in Hollywood to recognize my work.

On February 21st, at approximately 7:30 p.m., an unknown individual approached Ellen Grace Philpotts-Page outside of a movie theatre in Oakville, Ontario.
The individual said that he or she wanted to offer her a $1 million, five-year contract if she would star in a movie based on a script by a young woman who goes by the name of Anna Nicole Smith.
The movie script was written by Nicole Kidman and was meant to be released by Focus Features.
According to the woman, the producers of the movie were impressed by the talent Ellen Grace Philpots-Page has shown throughout her acting career.
At approximately 9:50 a.m., Ellen Grace Philpotts-Page walked out of a movie theatre in Oakville, Ontario carrying two large bags of popcorn and a golden globe.
A man standing next to her suddenly approached her, complimented her appearance, and offered to buy her the film script.
When the woman offered to buy the script, the man indicated that he lived in California and asked if she could meet him there.
The woman replied that she had plans that evening but accepted the man’s invitation.
The golden globe and popcorn were purchased by the man, while Ellen Grace Philpotts-Page remained at the theatre with the man while he bought her tickets and sang with her group from a microphone.
When the man left, she bought the script, which contained many inside jokes about the American lifestyles in which she was raised.
Later that night, she received a call from the man who invited her to the Toronto International Comedy Festival, an event she had never been to before in her life.
From that day on, she called the man, kept up with him through email, and became the spokesperson for the Canadian comedy scene that she was an integral part of for years.
