What didn’t “The King’s Speech” win at BAFTA?

The King's Speech - Geoffrey Rush

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: 2010 oozed fantastic films—but you wouldn’t know it for how completely “The King’s Speech” dominated prestigious award nominations. With 14 BAFTA nods, and many wins early in the program, it seemed the evening might be a sweep for the film. In the end, “The King’s Speech” only won in seven of the categories for which it was nominated, with other formidable films beating it out for the other half.

Included in its wins were Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Actor (Colin Firth), Best Supporting Actor (Geoffrey Rush), Best Supporting Actress (Helena Bonham Carter), Best Original Screenplay (David Seidler), and the Anthony Asquith Award for Film Music.

Beating it out were “Alice in Wonderland” for Best Makeup/Hair and Best Costume Design (Colleen Atwood), “Inception” for Best Sound and Best Production Design(Guy Hendrix Dyas, Larry Dias, Douglas A. Mowat), “The Social Network” for Best Director (David Fincher) and Best Editing (Angus Wall, Kirk Baxter), and “True Grit” for Best Cinematography.

“The King’s Speech” is also nominated for 12 Academy Awards, the winners of which will be announced on February 27th.
