The Imitation Game Takes Toronto Honor

The trio of major Fall film festivals (Venice, Telluride, Toronto) has come to a close and it’s The Weinstein Company’s “The Imitation Game” that looks to have come out a winner.

The Benedict Cumberbatch-led drama won the Toronto Film Festival’s highest honor, the people’s choice award, earlier this afternoon. This automatically slots it in as a major contender for the upcoming awards season as that award has been among the best early harbingers of Oscar success.

Other films thought to be top contenders in contention this year for the audience award included “Foxcatcher,” “Wild,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Nightcrawler”.
