The Queen approves of The King's Speech...so there.

Feb. 4, 2011by:

The Weinstein Company sent out a press release with the title, "The Queen Applauds The King's Speech". It was reported by Duncan Larcombe, Royal Editor of The Sun that after a viewing of the film, Queen Elizabeth had nothing but good things to say.

Word has it from a source that, "The Queen loves a good film. The King's Speech is close to the bone as it is a portrayal of her family in the 1930s. She found it moving and enjoyable. She was clearly amused by some of the lighter moments." The Queen was particularly impressed by Colin Firth who plays the role of her father, King George VI.

Screenwriter David Seidler said, To learn Her Majesty has seen the film, and was moved, in turn moves and humbles me greatly. When, thirty years ago, the Queen Mother asked me to wait and not tell this story during her lifetime, because the memory of these events was still too painful, I realized the depths of the emotions involved. Now this story has been written and filmed with a great deal of love, admiration, and respect for Her Majestys father. That Her Majesty has responded favorably to this, is wonderfully gratifying.

Harvey Weinstein gave thanks for the cast and crew, On behalf of the director Tom Hooper; the producers, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gareth Unwin; Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter and our entire ensemble cast: we are deeply honored and humbled by Her Majestys appreciation of the film. It was a labor of love for all of us and this is high praise, indeed.

Yes, don't edit The King's Speech

Queen Elizabeth II has corgis . . . and she's not afraid to use them.

BTW, I suspect The Kids Are All Right will snag Best Picture as a f**k you to Proposition 8.

The Prop 8 f**k you came when they bizarrely awarded Sean Penn with best actor (although that was probably equally as an apology for screwing Brokeback Mountain)

And the great Weinstein Oscar grab continues as the world braces themselves for the most mediocre Best Picture winner in AMPAS history.

I agree. If (and when) this beats The Social Network, it will be a travesty.
