Best Picture?

Following the steps of films like "American Beauty", "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", "Amélie", "Shine", "Chariots of Fire" and more recently "Slumdog Millionaire", Lee Daniels' "Precious" has snagged the People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival.
What does this mean?
It has just snagged itself one of the coveted ten Best Picture slots at next year's Oscars. This also bodes well for rising star Gabourey 'Gabby' Sidibe, the one to beat right now if there is no new Annette Bening/Hilary Swank match.

Nothing would make me happier than seeing Sibide win the award. Even a nomination would cause me to grin forever.
