There were no clean sweeps at the 83rd Academy Awards, but as expected the British period drama about a wartime king and his vocal coach came out top.

Nominated in 12 categories, ‘The King’s Speech’ won four Oscars, including Best Film.

Tom Hooper was named Best Director, while Colin Firth was Best Actor for his portrayal of the struggling George VI. The film also won Best Original Screenplay.
