|Just call me Oscar, Colin Firth is a front runner for this year's Oscar race.|
Even though Harry Potter dominated the box-office worldwide this weekend - British director Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech" is a real Oscar contender. Already Nominated for 8 British Independent Film, Awards, including best director, best Screenplay, Best Actor for the wonderful and deserving Colin Firth and a Best Supporting nod for Guy Pearce. (Priscilla, Queen of the desert, Momento.)
The King's speech tells the story of King George VI of Britain, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it.
