Oscar coverage: from the red carpet, to Colin Firth, to Melissa Leo’s swearing


February 28, 2011/12.45

Our coverage of the Oscars begins here, with highlights from Colin Firth’s, Natalie Portman’s and Melissa Leo’s acceptance speeches.
   The King’s Speech won best film while its star Colin Firth took the best actor prize at the Academy Awards. The movie took four honours in total, including best original screenplay for David Seidler and best director for Tom Hooper.
   Natalie Portman won best actress for Black Swan, and we have her emotional winning speech below.
   One talked-about moment was Melissa Leo dropping the f-bomb for the first time in an Oscar ceremony as she received her best supporting actress award from veteran actor Kirk Douglas, 94.
   On the red carpet, Russell Brand joked about security and humorously handed over interview duties to his Mum. Christian Bale called his best supporting actor nomination for The Fighter ‘gravy’ (he was later successful), while both Firth and Helena Bonham Carter are delighted at the number of people who have seen The King’s Speech.
