Watch Steve McQueen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt Get a Standing Ovation In Toronto For '12 Years a Slave'

Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" got an epic reception at the Toronto International Film Festival last night, which was perhaps somewhat expected after the unanimous praise it got out at Telluride last week. But Toronto certainly sealed the deal for "Slave" being an Oscar frontrunner, with an audience of thousands in the Princess of Wales Theater jumping to their feet as McQueen and his remarkable cast -- including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong'o (all three of whom are safe bets for Oscar nods as well), Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, Alfre Woodard, Paul Giamatti and Brad Pitt (who also produced).
