There weren’t a whole lot of surprises at the 83rd Academy Awards — as expected, “The King’s Speech” took the big prize as Best Picture. The film about King George VI overcoming his stutter also garnered a Best Actor statue for Colin Firth and a Best Director win for Tom Hooper.

“King”‘s four statuettes tied “Inception,” which also nabbed four awards in technical categories, for the most Oscars.

Oscar favorite Natalie Portman also took home the Best Actress statuette for her role in “Black Swan,” and Melissa Leo and Christian Bale of “The Fighter” cleaned up in the supporting role categories.
