BAFTAS give King’s Speech seven

The Brit awards honoured, mostly, their own this year, calling various participants in The King’s Speech to the stage seven times during the evening. Other multiple winners were Inception (3) and The Social Network (2). Christopher Sauron Lee picked up the Academy Fellowship for a lifetime of scaring the bejesus out of cinema-goers.

Despite The King’s Speech’s dominance at the BAFTAs, it had a lean night across the sea at the Irish Film and TV Awards. It was nominated in only one of the three international categories of Best Film, Actor and Actress. Helena Bonham Carter lost out to Annete Bening for her turn in The Kids are Alright.
