  1. Wow! 7 Nominations! This is amazing! I'm really looking forward to seeing The King's Speech.
    I'm very excited about Judi Dench and Ramola Garai's nominations, it would be wonderful if one of these delightful ladies won! :)

  2. I've really enjoyed all of your posts on The King's Speech, and am disappointed that it's still not playing on the U.S. East coast (at least not in Virginia nor even in the Washington D.C. market). So I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea when the film will enter wider distribution. You'd think that with all the positive press it's receiving, that would have already happened. Thanks!

  3. Laurie, I'd love to see Judi or Romola be recognized! And of course I'd like TKS to win quite a few of its noms!

    Emilie, glad you've enjoyed the posts on The King's Speech. Last I heard, it won't be in wide release in the states until Jan. 20th, a long time to wait I know! I can't understand myself why it's taking so long but hopefully the date will be moved up!

  4. Just a friendly reminder that ep 1 of "The Pillars of The Earth" airs on CBC Jan.4th! for more info

    I was lucky enough to have watched it during the summer on TMN and will actually be skipping ep 1 to go to the movies to see "The King's Speech" !!
    So I am sacrificing one Darcy for another :-)

  5. tyme_4_t,
    Enjoy The King's Speech!
