83rd Annual Academy Award® Winners

It did okay at the Golden Globes, impressed at the BAFTAs and now Royal favourite, The King's Speech has climbed to the top of the Hollywood tree winning four Oscars® at the prestigious film ceremony. As predicted by many, the film's star Colin Firth scored a victory for his performance as a stammering King George VI, and the British biopic also took home the awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Tom Hooper) and Best Original Screenplay. Its Best Picture rival, The Social Network didn't go home empty-handed, winning for Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing and Score, and mind-bending blockbuster Inception truimphed in four of the technical categories, but there was no joy for the Coen brothers' western remake True Grit which despite 10 nods didn't win in a single category. Hot favourite Natalie Portman won Best Actress for her role as a disturbed ballerina in Black Swan while co-stars Christian Bale and Melissa Leo took home the Best Supporting gongs for boxing drama The Fighter.
