Precious (2009)

When Precious screened at TIFF in 2009 and won the People's Choice Award, director Lee Daniels dedicated the win to TIFF co-director Cameron Bailey, thanking him for his "unparalleled support." Shortly after its warm reception at TIFF, the heartbreaking drama about an overweight, abused and illiterate Harlem teen who is pregnant with her second child went on to earn six Oscar nominations in 2010 (including one for its star Gabourey Sidibe). It struck gold, however, in the Best Adapted Screenplay category and the Best Supporting Actress race (for Mo'Nique).
