The King's SpeechBaftas 2011: The King's Speech sweeps the board | Film | The Guardian: "a bumbling king and his wretched speech impediment – but the story worked to spectacular effect with The King's Speech last night, triumphing above all others at the Baftas.

The King's Speech was nominated in 14 categories and won in seven, including best film and best British film. An extremely good tally. Not quite a record: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid has nine, The Killing Fields eight, but equal to Slumdog Millionaire's seven, two years ago.

But it is the subject matter – 'two men in a room,' said the winning writer David Seidler last night – that makes its global success remarkable. The film tells the story of stuttering George VI, who became king reluctantly because his brother abdicated.

The awards included probably the least surprising film announcement: Colin Firth winning best leading actor, his second consecutive Bafta. Last year it was for a bereaved gay lecturer in A Single Man – this year it was for Bertie, the king who has to make the speech of his life."
