Oscars: And the winner is… “The King’s Speech”

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: The Directors Guild of America has given its Best Director award to Tom Hooper for “The King’s Speech.” It’s a total upset over David Fincher and “The Social Network.” Other awards were: for Best Documentary to Charles Ferguson for “Inside Job.” “Modern Family” won for Best comedy series. “Boardwalk Empire” and Martin Scorsese won Best TV drama. “Temple Grandin” got Best Mini Series or TV Movie with director Mick Jackson.

Hooper and “The King’s Speech” are now poised to take everything at the Academy Awards. Add this to their Producer’s Guild award. Yowza.

And this was quite a night anyway. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg appeared on “Saturday Night Live” and spoofed himself with guest host Jesse Eisenberg, who plays him in “The Social Network.”

At Sundance, Drake Doremus’s “Like Crazy” won the jury prize for Best Dramatic film. “How to Die In Oregon” won Best Documentary.

Meantime, at the box office, 12 times nominated “The King’s Speech” is surging in ticket sales.
TheTony Awards (Glen Weiss) received DGA for Best Musical or Variety. “One Life to Live” wins Best Director for a soap (Larry Carpenter).

The DGA dinner was one of the longest of any awards show in history, it feels like. Almost six hours including cocktails. Yikes!
