The King’s Speech – that great movie that explored the problem of speech impediments, the behind-the-scenes of British Royalty during a crucial time in world history, and a spectacular show of brilliant acting and grace – has been crowned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It won for the Best Director, Best Actor, Best Picture and for Original Screenplay.

Having seen the movie twice now, I can say that it is an honour well deserved, and more – not only because of the spectacular acting, but because of how it has brought into public conversation again, the debilitating problem of stuttering. I should also add that Colin Firth spent his first four years in Nigeria as a child – which should explain some of the brilliance he has shown in his career.
