The King's Speech reigns
Not a bad week, then, for Tom Hooper's stuttery monarch drama. On Monday it picks up a Golden Globe best actor award for Colin Firth. On Tuesday, Bafta gives it nominations in almost every single category, and it's revealed it's actually growing at the UK box office. On Wednesday Jonathan Freedland's article about it becomes the most read on the entire site and on Thursday it's announced that Guardian readers will have the chance to quiz Hooper for a live webchat on Friday lunchtime. There was some bad news, of course - Screen Yorkshire, the regional funding body which oiled the wheels of the shoot, announced that it was looking at making 15 of its 19 staff redundant (echoing the a similar move at the BFI). But it's still difficult to quite grasp how wide and sustained the interest in this rather low-key, terribly British drama has been. We're really looking forward to finding out how its director is coping tomorrow – do send in your questions for him on anything and everything by 9am GMT tomorrow, and check back at lunchtime for his responses.
At first, everyone was excited by Firth's win and The Social Network's board sweep. But it quickly became apparent that the real story was how close to the wind host Ricky Gervais sailed …
