Félix Award

Félix Award

:"The European Film Awards were originally called the "Felix Awards"."The Félix Award is a music award, given on an annual basis to artists in the Canadian province of Quebec.

The first Félix awards were presented on September 23, 1979, by the "Association du disque, de l'industrie du spectacle québécois" (ADISQ).

The awards are named in honour of Quebec songwriter Félix Leclerc.

In contrast to the Juno Awards, whose nominations are based on record sales, nominations and winners of the Félix are decided by ADISQ members.

The awards have sometimes been controversial. In 1983, songwriter Luc Plamondon attracted controversy by using his acceptance speech to denounce copyright law. In 1990, Céline Dion publicly refused the Félix for anglophone artist of the year for her English-language album "Unison", not considering herself an anglophone artist.
