• Best Picture Winner – Reason For Production


    HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – As the three producers for “The King’s Speech’
    answered a flurry of questions backstage at the Kodak Theatre tonight, one of
    the men took a moment to reflect on why they sought to bring the film to the
    silver screen.
    “The strange irony of it all is that we probably, amongst other things,
    wanted to do this thing because we hate public speaking,’ said Iain Canning,
    who picked up the best picture Oscar along with Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin.
    The film about King George VI and his speech impediment was made with
    the financial help of the British Film Institute, whose fiscal future is now in
    jeopardy.
    “Without them, we wouldn’t be here, so we really hope that because of
    `The King’s Speech’ that everyone continues to support arts and culture,’
    Canning said.
    For Unwin, tonight’s victory was the end of a long campaign that saw
    “The King’s Speech’ honored around the world.
    “From the point of the script, we had faith in the story,’ Unwin said.
    “These campaigns run and they peak and they troth, but we never lost any
    faith with the film that we had.’
    Unwin went on to say it has a high honor the Academy Award from director
    Steven Spielberg, noting, “It was more interesting shaking his hand than
    this fellow,’ gesturing to the gold Oscar statue.
