The King’s Speech capped off a busy and honour-filled award season Sunday night with the biggest win of all: Oscar gold.
The popular saga of a struggling, stuttering English monarch was nominated for a total of twelve awards and took home the evening's top prize of Best Picture along with wins for Best Actor Colin Firth, Best Director Tom Hooper (who beat out The Social Network's odds-on fave David Fincher) and writer David Seidler for Best Original Screenplay.
The Social Network, considered a front runner in many major categories, came up far shorter than predicted but managed to take home three statuettes for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Original Score.
Though King's Speech was crowned the ultimate film champ of 2010, the film tied with another for most Oscar wins on the night. Christopher Nolan's mind-trippy drama Inception also took home a total of four awards, all of them in the decidedly more technical categories.
