The night of the Oscars belonged to The King’s Speech. It took home four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Male Actor.
This movie is based on a true story about King George VI (Colin Firth). After the death of his father, King George V, King George’s life is flipped upside-down when he suddenly becomes king.
He had a speech impediment his entire life, and his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham-Carter) arranges her husband to go to a speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush). He and his therapist form a special bond with each other. Eventually the King overcomes his stammer and deliver a radio-address that inspires his people and unites them in battle.
All the actors and actresses headed to London to film The King’s Speech with director Tom Hooper. “We all had a great time together,” said Hooper.
The movie has grossed more then $100 million dollars and is still climbing.
