TIFF’S BIG WIN­NERS

The TIFF Peo­ple’s Choice Award, which al­lows au­di­ence mem­bers to vote on their favourite films, usu­ally sets the tone for awards sea­son. (Past win­ners Room, 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech, Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire, Sil­ver Lin­ings Play­book and La La Land all went on to Os­car and Golden Globe-win­ning glory.) So ex­pect to see the peo­ple be­hind Martin McDon­agh’s Three Bill­boards Out­side Ebbing, Mis­souri, which took the prize this year, to take cen­tre stage in 2018.

Other big win­ners in­cluded mu­sic video di­rec­tor Joseph Kahn’s bat­tle rap movie Bod­ied, which beat out James Franco’s The Disas­ter Artist to win the Mid­night Mad­ness award and the Mar­got Rob­bie-star­ring I, Tonya, the first run­ner-up in the Peo­ple’s Choice Award cat­e­gory, that’s been gen­er­at­ing loads of Os­car buzz thanks to her pow­er­ful per­for­mance.
