The biggest night of the year for movies—the 91st annual Academy Awards—is almost here. And while we’re pumped to see Bradley Cooper perform, find out whether Black Panther will be the first superhero movie to win best picture, and really just to see how this host-less show goes, we’re also really excited to see the Canadians in the pack.

You know who we’re talking about. People like Domee Shi, whose animated short Bao is the story of a dumpling-come-to-life we never knew we needed. Or Jeremy Comte and Marianne Farley, whose respective shorts Fauve and Marguerite are both up for statues. And then there’s sound mixer Paul Massey (Bohemian Rhapsody) and set decorator Gordon Sim (Mary Poppins Returns), who both seem to have a pretty strong shot at a win.

This crew won’t be the first Canadians to make us proud on awards night, though. Click through the gallery below to see an array of Canucks who have twinkled next to Oscar over the decades, earning a permanent place in our hearts.

CTV’s live coverage of the 91st Oscars begins Sunday, February 24 at 5:30 p.m. ET with etalk Live at the Oscars.
