TIFF AUDIENCE AWARD WINNERS

Since 1978, attendees of the Toronto International Film Festival have chosen the winner of an “audience award,” or, as it’s now called, the Cadillac People’s Choice Award. The winning films have almost always gone on to garner attention from the Academy — they have accounted for 93 nominations (including 9 for best picture for 9 for best foreign language film), 35 of which resulted in wins (including 3 for best picture and 5 for best foreign language film) — which has helped to cement TIFF’s reputation as the first major event of the awards season.
