    I can tell by the 3 comments posted that the Oscars have chosen another movie that noone has ever seen. Should guarantee it the winner.

    I am so glad this movie is at the top of the nominations. I went to see The Kings Speech and it's on my list of all time favorites. It was a wonderful movie and Mr. Firth deserves the Oscar. I would go and see it again.
