Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet were at Roy Thomson Hall last night for the premiere of Blood Ties. And I missed them!

Dear Gossips,

TIFF's artistic director, Cameron Bailey, had a great weekend. So far, almost all the "possible contenders" have delivered, the most notable being Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, which now seems like a straight up lock for a Best Picture Oscar nomination, and could go all the way.  Read Full Intro
