Rush win Juno Award for Music DVD Of The Year

Rush have picked up some awards hardware in their home country.

"Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage"
was honored in the "Music DVD Of The Year" category at the Juno Awards gala dinner and award ceremony held Saturday night in Toronto.

32 of the 40 Junos were handed out in advance of the live broadcast Sunday night; Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will appear as presenters on the show, happening at the Air Canada Centre.

This is Rush's first Juno since 2004 when they won Music DVD of the Year for “Rush In Rio.” However, this honor marks the second consecutive win in this Juno category for filmmakers Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen of Banger Films, who received the same award last year for "Iron Maiden: Flight 666."

While The Grammy Awards recently passed over the documentary, the film picked up an honor last month at the MPSE (Motion Picture Sound Editing) Golden Reel Awards, which celebrate the work of sound and editing in motion pictures and television. “Beyond The Lighted Stage” won “Best Sound Editing: Sound Effects, Foley, Dialogue, ADR and Music in a Feature Documentary.”
