Winners of Oscar 2011

February 28th, 2011

83rd Annual Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre on February 27, 2011 in Hollywood, California.

The King’s Speech and its star Colin Firth were the toast of Hollywood last night, winning best film, best actor, best director and best original screenplay.

Although it was pretty much a given that Firth was going to collect an Oscar for his powerful portrait of  King George VI, and that David Seidler would win for best original screenplay,  the wins for best director and best film weren’t as assured as people believed.

And while Natalie Portman wiped tears from her eyes as she celebrated her best actress win, and Melissa Leo and Christian Bale both won for The Fighter, there was no doubting the night belonged to the British film.

Few in the UK wanted to back The King’s Speech, but a band of producers and film-makers slashed their usual rates to get it made. With Film 4 and BBC Films both refusing funding, the UK Film Council put up a large part of the money, along with London-based Momentum Pictures and Harvey Weinstein’s Weinstein film company.
