The Toronto International Film Festival wrapped up today by announcing its winners of the festival prizes, including the coveted People's Choice Award, voted on by the audience. This has become a major Oscar bellwether in recent years, with movies such as The King's Speech, Slumdog Millionaire, Silver Linings Playbook, and last year's 12 Years a Slave winning here first before going on to Oscar glory. This would theoretically place The Imitation Game as the Best Picture frontrunner for the moment (with many more movies to yet to debut of course). In any case, it should solidify the audience appeal of this movie, which started with the adoration out of Telluride and obviously continued at TIFF (where the audience taste tends to match pretty closely with the Academy's). This is going to be a major player, folks.
