Jan 24, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The King still continues to rule. Yes with the recent bagging of the award for the best film at the 22nd annual Producers Guild of America Awards “The King’s Speech” makers have made it clear that they are in no mood to step down from clutching the awards. “The King’s Speech” won the best film award after it beat other top contenders like “The Social Network”, “Inception”, “Black Swan”, “127 Hours” and “The Fighter”.
Before the Producers Guild of America Awards that took place on Saturday, “The King’s Speech” had also earned the award for the best actor that was awarded to Colin Firth for his outstanding role as King George VI in the period drama. The movie that has encountered much success at the box-hit is about the English king George VI who faces the problem of nervous stammering and how he overcomes the problem and goes on to rule the nation with the help of an unorthodox speech therapist whose role has been played by Geoffrey Rush. “The King’s Speech” which was nominated for the best picture award at the Golden Globes failed to make the cut with “The Social Network” claiming the title.
The win at the Producers Guild of America Awards is not just an ordinary win. The victory at this award ceremony is known to be suggestive of who has high chances of winning the same title at the Academy Awards. The movie directed by Tom Hooper and produced by a trio of Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin was awarded the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the event.
