The Oscars were no surprise this year. As we expected, the prestigious film event was glamorous, lavish, but yet a bit boring, when it comes to movies. According to the experts, this year the Oscars didn’t show any movie competition.
Maybe that’s why the King’s Speech was the biggest winner of the event. As the genius Spielberg said it, the Citizen Cain didn’t receive any Academy award, but the King’s Speech did.
The movie received four awards at the 83rd ceremony of the Oscars. The British film, a historical drama about King George VI, was crowned in four categories, including best picture, best actor, best director and best movie. Colin Firth, who played in the movie finally took his first Oscar for best actor.
The film was also awarded for best original screenplay. Tom Hooper took the statuette for best director for The King’s Speech.
The Social Network also took three Oscars – for adapted screenplay, editing and soundtrack. The other big winner of the year is Natalie Portman. The pregnant actress was honored as best actress of the year for her role in Black Swan.
Christian Bale and Melissa Leo grabbed awards for best supporting roles in the movie The Fighter.
