The British ruled the Oscars this year because the Academy has richly rewarded the “The King’s Speech”, including director Tom Hooper and actor Colin Firth, but also a Welsh actor for best supporting actor, namely Christian Bale for “The Fighter.”
Emotion and humor were at the heart of Colin Firth’s speech, while Christian Bale, overwhelmed by emotion, paid tribute to his wife and daughter.
For her part, Natalie Portman didn’t fail to share her prize with the other nominees, dedicating her speech to her family, as you will discover in the video excerpts below.
But the night’s blooper was by far Melissa Leo’s speech, who ended up getting censored. Watch the clip to see why.
