The Weeknd wins big at pre-telecast Junos, Arkells take sixth group of the year awardTORONTO — The Weeknd has another armful of Juno Awards for his shelf this year, but the Canadian superstar didn't show up in Edmonton to accept them. He's up for another two Junos on the Monday broadcast: album of the year and the fan choice award voted on by viewers. Other musicians vaulted obstacles to make the Junos, including members of Arkells who battled flight cancellations in Newfoundland. Three of them made flights in time to win their sixth group of the year honour. The pre-telecast Junos saw more than 40 awards handed out at the Edmonton Convention Centre with "Run the Burbs" star Andrew Phung and CBC Music's Angeline Tetteh-Wayoe co-hosting the event.
