Will 'Imitation Game' win the People's Choice Award?
The Weinstein Company's major awards season player won Telluride hands down. Could it now walk away with Toronto's coveted People's Choice Award? There are a lot of peculiar conditions regarding the award including theater size and number of screenings, but the Benedict Cumberbatch period piece seems like a leading contender considering how well it plays to the older female audience that usually dominates the star-filled TIFF screenings. Other films that might surprise include "St. Vincent," "Pride," "The Theory of Everything," "The Good Lie," "Rosewater," "Whiplash" (the Sundance winner) and maybe even "Wild Tales."
