Winners: "The King's Speech" and "Inception"
"The King's Speech," left dead-in-the-water after being routed by "The Social Network" through the critical award season and then at the Golden Globes, won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor on Sunday night, clearly triumphant (if you ignore its 4-for-12 winning percentage). But "King's Speech" was only able to equal the haul for "Inception," which captured a quartet of technical Oscars including the cinematography prize for Wally Pfister. And each "Inception" winner took the opportunity to rave about director Christopher Nolan, he of the frequent Oscar snubbing.
