The King's Speech set to reign at Baftas

British movie The King's Speech is expected to reign at the Baftas after topping the nominations list for the film awards.





The story of King George VI's attempt to overcome his stutter is in the running for the most coveted prizes, including best film and director as well as actor for Colin Firth, at next month's ceremony.



Firth's co-stars, Geoffrey Rush, who plays the monarch's speech therapist, and Helena Bonham Carter as Queen Elizabeth, are nominated in the supporting actor and actress categories.



News of the film's 14 nominations follows disappointment at the Golden Globes, where the royal drama, directed by Briton Tom Hooper, took only one - Firth won best actor - of the seven awards it had been contending for.
