Tom Hooper's The King's Speech is expected to be an awards-favorite this year and easily grab one of the ten Best Picture nomination slots at this year’s Oscars.  The film has already won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.  The film centers on King George VI (played by Colin Firth) working with a speech therapist (played by Geoffrey Rush) to overcome his stammer and speak effectively to his country during wartime.

This past weekend, the film picked up the audience award at the 18th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival.  Other winners at the festival included Jill Andresevic’s documentary Love, Etc., Aaron Schock’s Circo, and Alice Nellis’ Mamas & Papas.  Hit the jump for the full list of winners.  The King’s Speech is due out on November 26th.
