Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical “Belfast,” a black-and-white family drama about the Northern Ireland city in the tumult of the late 1960s, on Saturday won the Toronto International Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award, a telling indicator of Academy Awards chances.

The festival’s top honor, voted on by festival-goers at TIFF, is widely viewed as an Oscar harbinger.

The previous nine winners have all gone on to secure a best-picture Oscar nomination, as have 13 of the last 14 People’s Choice prizewinners.

Those include best-picture winners “12 Years a Slave,” “Green Book” and last year’s pick, Chloe Zhoe’s “Nomadland.”
