The King’s Speech stole the show at Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony, earning the Oscar for Best Picture…in its original R-rated version. Controversy stirred today with news that a PG-13 version will be released in theaters to completely replace the film.
The King’s Speech was the big winner at last night’s Academy Awards with Colin Firth taking Best Actor, Tom Hooper taking Best Director, screenwriter David Seidler taking Best Original Screenplay and the film winning the overall category for Best Film. Basically, in comparison, all the other movies got screwed.
The Oscar nominations were announced this morning at 5:30am (because, you know, that’s exactly the kind of news you need to hear that early in the am). Whoever you think was going to get nods from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences got one – well…except for a few folks.
