Ep. 96: The King’s Speech feat. Watson Jones III

Nate and Ryan welcome Watson Jones III to discuss The King’s Speech, 2010 winner of the Best Picture Oscar directed by Tom Hooper. The King’s Speech was a somewhat improbable winner in an especially strong movie year. It was in that backlash-filled atmosphere that many people watched Colin Firth act his way to a long-deserved Oscar. But what is it like to watch The King’s Speech without the noise? Watson joins Nate and Ryan in a wide-ranging discussion that covers way more ground than we thought possible.

What are your thoughts on The King’s Speech? If Colin Firth hadn’t won for this, what did he deserve to win for? If not The King’s Speech, what 2010 movie should have won Best Picture? Let us know!
