Whether it takes home gold at Sunday’s Canadian Screen Awards, The Amazing Race Canada has already won the popular vote.

The reality TV series has taken the Golden Screen Award in its category for the fourth year in a row.

It’s a two-peat, meanwhile, in the drama category for Murdoch Mysteries.

The Golden Screen Awards for television go to the shows that have the highest ratings; in this case, they were measured between Sept. 1, 2016 and Nov. 15, 2017.

There is also a Golden Screen Award for feature films, which goes to the movie with the highest domestic box office. This year’s winner is De père en flic 2, which premiered in July 2017 in Montreal.

All three awards will be presented Sunday during the pre-show gala, the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television said in a news release, with a montage of the winners seen during the televised gala.
