Ever since Bale's meltdown last year, I haven't liked him.

(I used to, but not now. I feel the same way about Russell Crowe, his antics ruin the acting for me).

So I too was disappointed that Geoffrey Rush didn't win, instead of Bale.

Does anyone know whether the Royal Family actually made an appearance on the balcony of BP after KGVI's first wartime speech, as in the movie? Or was it an example of artistic license?

Loved this film! Watched it for the first time the other day. Both Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush were outstanding (still can't believe Geoffrey didn't get an Oscar - did he get a BAFTA?). Made me feel proud to be British - because of both the story itself and that the film was so beautifully made. So sad that this is one of the last films funded by the British Film Council. They did a lot for the British film industry.

I loved the film. It was well done and had great acting. I was happy to hear that it won an Oscar for 'best picture'.

Not really movie related, but I found interesting and decided to share .

William & Catherine stepped out in their first public function as a married couple in support of the 10th Anniversary Gala for the charity ARK (Absolute Return for Kids). The charity went on to raise 17.2m by the end of the night.

That's sweet! Must have been a strange but interesting conversation for William talking to the man who played his great grandfather in a film, and vice versa for Colin talking to the great grandson of the man he portrayed.

And I also don't get why there was an 'edited' version. Because let's be honest, there are movies out there that have a lot more cursing, as well as violence and sex to boot, so really, no reason to cut out/edit the only thirty seconds/one minute of swearing in the entire production. It went with the scene. The man was angry and frustrated, so he swore.

It was an excellent movie. I saw it 3 times!
