The King’s Speech flies UK flag as Oscar nominations announced

>The nominations for this years Academy Awards have been announced, and British film ‘The King’s Speech’ has the most nominations.

Colin Firth, Helena Bonham-Carter and Geoffrey Rush have all been nominated for acting awards, and the film is up for the coveted Best Picture award. Overall, ‘The Kings Speech’ received twelve nominations. It was followed by ‘True Grit’ (not yet out in the UK,) with ten nominations, and ‘The Social Network’, which received eight nominations. The team behind ‘The Social Network’ will probably be the most disappointed not to have received a couple more. Nathalie Portman is the strong favourite to win Best Actress for her performance in ‘The Black Swan’. ‘The Kids are Alright‘ and Danny Boyle’s ‘127 Hours’ received multiple nominations.

The Oscars will take place on the 27th February, as ever at the Kodak Theatre in LA.
