Martin McDonagh's darkly hilarious film "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" won the Toronto film festival (TIFF)'s audience prize for best picture Sunday, giving it a leg up in the race for the Oscars.In Venice, where the film premiered, the British-Irish playwright said he wrote the script specifically for McDormand, based on an idea that began to germinate 20 years ago when he was traveling across America by bus.More than 300 feature and short films from 74 countries were screened at the Toronto festival, the biggest in North America.In past years, films such as "Spotlight," "12 Years a Slave," and "Slumdog Millionaire" have gone on from winning the audience prize in Toronto to taking top honors at the Oscars.Last year, the musical "La La Land" won the Toronto prize and then took home six Oscars, including best actress and best director – but not the top prize, despite the shocking mix-up with "Moonlight" at the end of the gala.
