'The King's Speech' Tops BAFTAs with 14 Nominations

Photo Courtesy - The Weinstein Company(LONDON) -- The King's Speech is the talk of England.  The film leads the way with 14 nominations for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, or BAFTAs, which are considered Britain's answer to the Oscars.

The movie picked up nods for best picture, as well as best actor for Colin Firth, best supporting actor for Geoffrey Rush, best supporting actress for Helena Bonham Carter, and best director for Tom Hooper.  Black Swan garnered 12 nominations, while Inception and True Grit grabbed eight.

This year's BAFTAs also awarded a nomination to the late actor Pete Postlethwaite, who died earlier this month.  He was nominated for best supporting actor for The Town.  The BAFTAs last handed out a posthumous award in 2009 to Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight, also in the best supporting actor field.

The best actress field looks like an "All Right" race, with Annette Bening and Julianne Moore each scoring a nomination for The Kids Are All Right.

The BAFTAs will take place Feb. 13, two weeks before the Academy Awards.
