Green Book has won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Peter Farrelly directed the comedy-drama, which stars Mahershala Ali as a classical pianist and Viggo Mortensen as his chauffeur.

The $15,000 People’s Choice prize is sponsored by Grolsch.

The honour is often a predictor of Academy Award success.

Several previous People’s Choice Award winners have gone on to win the best picture Oscar including 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire.

The award was handed out Sunday in a ceremony that marked the end of the 11-day festival.
