Steven Spielberg has been on something of a roll lately with critical hit West Side Story and now it seems he is going to continue that streak with The Fabelmans. While Spielberg is best known for his blockbusters, he hasn’t been a big draw for audiences since the 90s. Now it seems he’s taking note and making smaller, more personal films as The Fabelmans seems to indicate.
It seems that people are fans of Spielberg’s new film having been awarded the 2022 Toronto Film Festival People’s Choice Award. In second place was Sarah Polley’s Women Talking followed by Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
The Documentary Award went to Black Ice, and the Midnight Madness award went to Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.
The results of these awards are voted by audience members and have done so since 1978. Winners of this award have often gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar or are at least nominated. Winners of both awards include 12 Years a Slave, Slumdog Millionaire, The King’s Speech, and American Beauty. Nominees for Best Picture that won this award include La La Land, JoJo Rabbit, Silver Linings Playbook, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Spielberg said of the award:
The acclaimed director said during the premiere that the film was “a very daunting experience” that led to him recreating “huge recollections” from not only his life “but in the lives of my three sisters, my mother and father who are no longer with us.” He finished saying that “some of it was very, very hard to get through.”
Having won this award, The Fabelmans is expected to be an Oscar front-runner.
The film stars Seth Rogen, Judd Hirsch, Michell Williams, and Gabriel LaBelle. It is expected to be release November 23, 2022.
