The buzz around TIFF awards is running rampant
We are thinking that the Cadillac People’s Choice Award should be renamed Teenager’s Choice this TIFF. High school horrors like Jennifer’s Body and Leslie, My Name is Evil are getting big buzz. There’s also some chat about Whip It, the (say it with us) directorial debut of Drew Barrymore. The Trotsky (starring Jay Baruchel and set in Montreal) is apparently winning over Canadian hearts, making it a front runner for the Best Canadian Feature Award.
Critic’s pick? Everyone seems to think An Education—with Carey Mulligan as a precocious ’60s co-ed—has it in the sack. The awards will be handed out at a ceremony at the InterContinental on Front Street tomorrow at 3:30 p.m.
At least one celeb’s vote was registered at the Youth in Revolt premiere the other night—that of Jonas Brother number three (we think his name is Nick). Says our source: “He was sitting with someone who looked like a bodyguard. He laughed a lot!”
Well, we’re loath to say it, but who needs awards? A Jonas in the audience beats two Junos in the bush, any day.
