"Enemy" has taken nods for Best Picture, Best Direction, Best Acting (Gyllenhaal) and Best Editing, to name a few. (Villeneuve's white-knuckle kidnapping thriller "Prisoners," also starring Gyllenhaal, hit theaters stateside back in September.) Dolan's "Tom at the Farm" has nabbed nominations including Best Picture and Direction.

Other nominees include Canadian Oscar entry "Gabrielle," following the life of a disabled young woman; Barbara Doran and Roger Frappier's fest favorite "The Grand Seduction"; and the little indie that could, Matt Johnson's Slamdance winner "The Dirties," an unsettling portrait of school bullying, nabbed a nomination in Editing.

Here are the full lists of narrative film and documentary nominees. (Remember that Sarah Polley's "Stories We Tell" hit Canuck theaters in 2012, thus not making it a contender for this year's noms.)
