Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Wins Toronto Film Festival Audience Award


Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri just upped its Oscar potential by winning the top audience prize at the Toronto International Film Festival. The report from Deadline reveals the edgy drama by director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) managed to beat out competitors like Luca Guadagnino’s romance drama Call Me by Your Name and Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya, the wild Tonya Harding biopic with Margot Robbie. Previous winners of the coveted Grolsch People’s Choice Award include La La Land, 12 Years a Slave, Silver Linings Playbook, The King’s Speech, Slumdog Millionaire, amongst many others. So it will be interesting to see how Three Billboards does this year now that it holds such an impactful accolade.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri stars Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and Sam Rockwell. The film had its World Premiere in Venice earlier this year, and Fox Searchlight has it slated for U.S. release on November 10th, 2017.
