The Kings Speech Wins Big at Oscars

A lot of you probably didn’t see it, but ‘The King’s Speech’ was the big winner at last night’s 83rd annual Academy Awards, taking home top honor of  Best Picture, and Best Actor for Colin Firth.

Firth beat out some pretty top talent for the award, including Javier Bardem (Biutiful), Jeff Bridges (True Grit), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and James Franco (127 Hours).

For Best Picture, ‘The King’s Speech’ beat out  ‘The Social Network,’ ‘Inception,’ ‘True Grit,’ ‘Toy Story 3,’  and eight others, some are calling it an upset, believing that ‘The Social Network,’ should have won, but others predicted it from the beginning.

In addition to those awards, ‘The King’s Speech picked up the honors of Best Director and Best Screen Play as well.
