Taika Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit” has won the coveted Peopleâs Choice Award at this yearâs Toronto International Film Festival .
The honor positions the film for a potential Oscar run. Thatâs good news for Fox Searchlight, which must have been disappointed by the lackluster critical reception for the movie, a dark comedy set in the waning days of the Nazi Empire.
Last yearâs winner, “Green Book,” went on to capture the Academy Award for Best Picture. Previous victors include “La La Land,” “Room,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” and “The Imitation Game,” all of which went on to score with Oscar voters and other awards bodies. That track record has helped position the festival as a key stop for awards season hopefuls.
The first runner-up is Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story” and the second runner-up is Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite,” both of which were more warmly received by critics.
