The King’s Speech pretty much swept the awards on this one, winning Best Film, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Screenplay.
The French film A Prophet won Best Foreign Film against Dogtooth. I Am Love, The Secret in their Eyes and Winter’s Bones… which is weird considering that A Prophet was competing last year alongside The Secret in their Eyes, while I Am Love and Winter’s Bones are competing this year.
If you haven’t seen A Prophet, what are you waiting for? I’ts a dark high-tension drama that’s set, mostly, between the walls of a prison. Brilliantly acted by fellow the 20 to Watch Tahar Rahim.
