An Oscar movie

Posted by Claudia Moser on 7:28 PM
I am pretty sure that the King's Speech has a great chance to receive an Oscar (with 12 nominations the probability is pretty high), but I would be very happy if Colin Firth will receive a well deserve award for his role of King Edward VI.

After a long time this is a movie with a SUBJECT, it has a wonderful touching story (the cure of King Edward's stammering), a delicate love story in the back ground, a long lasting friendship between a royal member and a commoner. So many sides, so much to reflect upon. I simply liked the movie, I will remember it for a long time and for sure I will buy the DVD to re-watch it on a lazy afternoon.

I found an interesting statement from Colin Firth on his chances to win an Oscar

"I think I'm old enough to manage expectations, frankly," he said. "And those things are wonderful, but they are what they are. And I thinks it's entirely fine to bask in all of that as long as you don't lose sight of the fact that your film isn't measured by that. The answer is, let's hope it all happens, and it'll be disappointing if it doesn't, but I think the film will still be what it is. At the moment, that's where it's at, people are liking it and, on the whole, loving it—and it's a very, very gratifying thing to be a part of, obviously."

Very mature and very realistic, but I wish he will win it! He deserves it!

And for those who did not go to the cinema I can only encourage you to do so, you won't regret the 2 hours spend under the speech's spell!




I have heard how wonderful it is and I do intend to watch it. I hope Colin Firth wins too.

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
