TORONTO (AP) - A raw film about an abused teen named Precious won the audience choice award at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, stoking predictions that the harrowing, Oprah Winfrey-backed tale is Oscar-bound.

'Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire,' snagged the coveted award at a luncheon that also named 'Cairo Time,' from Toronto director Ruba Nadda, the best Canadian feature.
