The King’s Speech Wins TIFF Audience Award

The King's Speech Wins TIFF Audience Award

News that will make Harvey Weinstein’s day is that not only did Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech leapfrog to Oscar-casters’ front-runner lists after its warm media reception at the Toronto International Film Festival, but it won the coveted People’s Choice award as well. That’s a remarkable feat.

Colin Firth, who did not win the Oscar for A Single Man this year, is now the one to beat for his role as stutterer King George VI in The King’s Speech. And Geoffrey Rush, as the speech/psycho-therapist who cures him, is leading the supporting actor fray as well.
