Helena Bonham Carter and Colin Firth in The King's Speech
Great news from the Oscars that The King's Speech has scooped four categories.

Although there is no Oscar for best location the part that Drapers' Hall played in the film has certainly been widely noticed.  In particular, the scene where George VI gives his accession speech in the Livery Hall and his attempts to speak before the Privy Council are spliced with shots of the various royal portraits on the walls including a stern Queen Victoria makes for memorable cinema.

The King's Speech is clearly destined for a most sucessful 2011 and I am sure that the part the Hall played in creating some of the film's most evocative scenes will be of continuing interest.
