The King’s Speech reigns at the BAFTAs
The King’s Speech emerged victorious at yesterday’s BAFTA awards ceremony, earning itself seven big wins – including Best Film and Outstanding British Film.
Star Colin Firth won the Best Actor award, while Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter both bagged a Best Support trophy each.
Toy Story 3 surprised absolutely nobody by winning the Best Animation award, while The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – ignored at this year’s Oscar noms – won Best Film Not In The English Language.
Inception also took home a clutch of technical awards, while Alice In Wonderland won for its costumes and make-up.
Other contenders to King’s crown came in the form of Natalie Portman – who took home the Best Actress statuette for Black Swan – and David Fincher, who nabbed Best Director for Social Network.
TF favourite Tom Hardy also emerged victorious with the Orange Rising Star Award, beating other TF favourite Andrew Garfield, Aaron Johnson, Gemma Arterton and Emma Stone to the trophy.
As a sign of how things could play out at this year’s Oscars, these are exciting – if not exactly surprising – results.
