News that will make Harvey Weinstein's day is that not only did Tom Hooper's The King's Speech leapfrog to Oscar-casters' front-runner lists after its warm media reception at the Toronto International Film Festival, but it won the coveted People's Choice award as well. That's a remarkable feat.

Colin Firth, who did not win the Oscar for A Single Man this year, is now the one to beat for his role as stutterer King George VI in The King's Speech. And Geoffrey Rush, as the speech/psycho-therapist who cures him, is leading the supporting actor fray as well.
