King's Speech reigns over Bafta awards
13-Feb-2011 (one comment)

The King's Speech has walked away with a clutch of Bafta awards, including best actor for Colin Firth.

Helena Bonham Carter was named best supporting actress and Geoffrey Rush picked up best supporting actor.

It also won best film, outstanding British film, best score and best original screenplay.

Firth, 50, who also won the best actor Bafta last year for A Single Man, joked: "I like coming here." The film won seven awards in total.

Firth is the first star to win the best actor Bafta two years' running since the late Rod Steiger won back-to-back Baftas for The Pawnbroker in 1967 and In the Heat of the Night in 1968.
