Colin Firth as King George VI

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.
