Toronto a preview for Academy Awards?

In 2007 the Academy Award for Best Picture went to the film “No Country for Old Men.” Last year, the same prize went to “Slumdog Millionaire.” Both movies celebrated their world premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Will the year’s most acclaimed film appear at Canada’s biggest movie showcase once again? With a whopping 242 feature length films –- including 95 world premieres –- chances are pretty good. Dramas, comedies, documentaries... everything is in the mix at the 34th Annual Toronto International Film Festival.

CNN entertainment producer JD Cargill will be at the festival this weekend. Check back here on the Marquee Blog to get frequent updates and follow Cargill on Twitter @jdcargillcnn.
