The Gracie Awards were presented to honorees which were previously announced on March 21, 2016 (view full list of honorees here) in recognition of their successes in the media industry.The ceremony, led by executive producer Vicangelo Bulluck and featuring a production team with a female director, female assistant director, female stage manager and an all-female camera crew, hosted honorees like Lifetime Achievement Honoree Lynda Carter, Mindy Kaling, Allison Janney, Kathie Lee Gifford and more, while presenters and additional guests in attendance included Octavia Spencer, Scott Foley, Marilu Henner, Melissa Rivers, Maureen “Mo” Langan, Andrea Navedo, Danica McKellar, Lesley-Ann Brandt and more.Highlights from the show include: • Allison Janney, after being presented her award by Octavia Spencer for her work on Mom, gave a warm-hearted speech around her admiration of the Alliance for Women in Media for recognizing her work on a show that celebrates women, stating that “women who find that getting through all of the ups and downs of life, they find it easier to get through it leaning on each other. That’s what we do as women. That’s what we should do. It makes us stronger and more powerful.” • Mindy Kaling took a light-hearted approach on an issue very important: pay inequality. “For years and years, the role of a lead actress on a sitcom was to do two things: look amazing and make one-third of what my co male star makes.” She continued, “I want to be clear. I do always look amazing on the show, and no man on that show makes more money than me.” • 2016 Gracies Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter received nothing short of a standing ovation when she was presented with the top honor of the evening.

That let me share my ups and downs. That their heart broke when my heart broke. And they laughed at my stupid jokes and they forgave me when I made mistakes. And I cannot tell you how deeply grateful I am.” She finished by dedicating her award to her late husband Frank Gifford pointing to the sky and announcing, “This is for you, honey. You made me laugh.” • Grammy Award-nominee Andra Day took to the stage for the unforgettable performance of the evening. Day brought the house down and the audience to their feet as she gave a flawless and empowering performance of her single Rise Up from her album “Cheers to the Fall.”
Lucy Scholey APTN NewsElder Ken “Mutchie” Bennett fears his Mi’kmaq culture will disappear with his generation, as thousands of fellow band members are expected to have their Indian status revoked this spring.Bennett, along with about 40 members and supporters of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation in Newfoundland, were in Ottawa Saturday protesting a controversial federal government agreement.A total of 10,512 founding band members are expected to lose status this spring, after an Order in Council determines the final list of members.Bennett was one of the lucky 13,365 founding members who will keep his status. His wife, children and grandchildren were rejected from band.“It hits home when my daughter calls me up from New Brunswick and says, ‘Dad, our bloodline or our recognition … ends with your generation. It ends with you.’ It was very hurtful,” he said.When Newfoundland joined Confederation in 1949, the province’s Indigenous people weren’t recognized under the Indian Act. It wasn’t until 2008 when the Canadian government signed an agreement with the Federation of Newfoundland Indians (FNI), allowing First Nations to apply for founding membership of the Qalipu band.A total of 27,000 applications were received and 23,877 were deemed eligible as founding members. Then, a flood of applications rolled in. By 2012, the government had 104,000 applications to sift through.In 2013, the government and FNI announced a supplemental agreement, clarifying the band enrolment rules. They decided to review all applications, including those already received and accepted. Apart from the original 10,512 founding band members, a further 68,134 applicants were rejected from the pool.It’s a process that has divided families and left many feeling displaced.Those who applied for status had to meet a set of criteria, including whether they lived in Newfoundland, participated in Mi’kmaq cultural events or ceremonies or, if they moved away from province, whether they came home for visits or stayed in touch with band members.Those who moved away from home may no longer qualify for band membership. Bennett said it’s confusing why he, a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces who spent 28 years moving around the country, would be eligible.“How I retained mine, I’m really not sure,” he said. “I’m grateful, but I’m unhappy that any of our brothers and sisters lost their recognition. They didn’t lose their identity. They still are who they were born to be. But they lost their identity as a status Indigenous person in Canada.”Jim DuHart, who organized the Ottawa protest, held up his status card before the crowd. Originally from Corner Brook, he’s one of 13 people in his family.“Three in, everybody out including me,” he said.Chief Brendan Mitchell said it’s unfair for Qalipu identity to be tied to geography. Newfoundland’s high unemployment rate forces many band members to move out of province for work, he said.“Our people all over the country are being impacted by what’s happening,” he said. “They’re upset. They’re hurting. They feel that they’ve been displaced. They feel sadness in their hearts over what happened.”The supplemental agreement was signed pre-Trudeau, but Mitchell said it’s time for the current government to step in. Otherwise, he said, there could be lawsuits following the finalized spring band list.“We talk about truth and reconciliation and the main topics for us include residential schools, for example, missing and murdered women, 60s scoop, sterilization,” he said. “Well, this country’s going to have to add Qalipu First Nation to that situation regarding truth and reconciliation.”A spokesperson from Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada said the government has no plans to amend Bill C-25, the act respecting the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band Order.“To date, more than 18,000 individuals have been accepted as Founding Members of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation – making it the second largest First Nation by population in Canada.”Qalipu membership by the numbers (from the Government of Canada website):– 13,365 applicants who are on the current Founding Members list will remain eligible for founding membership– 10,512 applicants who are on the current Founding Members list were found by the joint Enrolment Committee to not meet the criteria under the 2013 Supplemental Agreement for Founding Membership (These individuals will retain their membership until the amendment of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band Order, expected in the spring of 2018. They are entitled to appeal their decision, the results of which may increase the Founding Members List. Some of those who are no longer eligible for founding membership may still be able to register for membership as a descendant of a Founding Member.)– 4,679 applicants who were not Founding Members will now be eligible for founding membership (They will gain membership once the amendment of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band Order is confirmed through an Order in Council in the spring of 2018.)– 68,134 applicants were not Founding Members and will not be eligible for founding membership– 3,984 applicants have invalid applications and are therefore not eligible for founding [email protected]
