[singlepic id=341 w=240 h=320 float=left]The last Best Supporting Actor nominee this year is Geoffrey Rush, for The King’s Speech. Rush plays an unconvential speech therapist, Lionel Logue, who is hired by Queen Elizabeth to assist her husband, new King George VI to overcome his debilitating stammer. Although this role is categorized as Supporting Actor, Rush’s presence is huge and commanding… demanding attention. His character takes liberties with the King, nicknamed Bertie, that a few centuries earlier may have earned him a beheading. Rush’s nuance (that also earned him an oscar for ‘Shine’) brings his role to central focus, although it doesn’t compete with Firth’s equally compelling acting.
