Deserves its Oscar

  • Jun 3, 2011
The last time I saw a movie that won an Oscar for best picture was Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings series. I haven't taken the Oscars seriously since then. However, The King's Speech truly deserves its Oscar. The acting - not just Colin Firth's but the entire cast's - represents the epitome of good acting. The actors play their characters just right, with an appropriate amount of subtlety and emotion. The cinematography is also unique and makes excellent use of close-up shots. It's also an absolutely superb story, made all the more fascinating by the fact that it is based on historical events. It just proves yet again that the most interesting stories are often those that have actually happened. In short, this is perhaps the best movie I've seen since Lord of the Rings, and certainly worth the Oscar hype.
