^She should win something but I doubt she will. It's a joke how she's entered into the best supporting actress Oscar category when she was in almost every scene, but that's the Oscars for you I guess.
Nice avatar, son! One of the best matches I've ever watched in my entire life!
Anyway, I can see why she's up for "best supporting actress" as she supported Bridges role.
Just watched King's Speech
I really liked this. I knew almost nothing about it beforehand but that probably helped matters, to be honest. There are three absolutely cracking performances from Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham-Carter. I expect it to be full of big, schmalzy pay offs but they didn't go down that road, for the most part. They allowed it to be very understated and extremely funny at times.
Thankfully they didn't try to use the movie as a historical document and it revolves far more around the relationships between the various characters than it does the historical context of the time. Geoffrey Rush is absolutely spot on as the speech therapist. Firth's character is extremely likable and I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the running for an Oscar.
