'The King's Speech' dominates London ceremony winning three gongs

The King’s Speech has scooped three more accolades, this time at the National Movie Awards.

Tom Hooper‘s historical drama has been enjoying an unbroken run this awards season, and last night in London it won three more.

Following its Oscar and BAFTA triumph, the film won Best Drama, Performance Of The Year for its star Colin Firth, and the Special Recognition prize.

It beat Black Swan, 127 Hours and The Social Network to the big prize, reports BBC News.

Meanwhile, the climax to the Harry Potter saga took home two awards, despite one of the films not having been released. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was named Fantasy Of The Year, while the forthcoming second part took home a special title Must-See Movie Of The Year gong.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost‘s extra-terrestrial adventure Paul was named Best Comedy. And Johnny Depp, in the UK to promote Pirates Of The Caribbean 4, was given the special accolade of Screen Icon.

The awards were presented by Christine Bleakley and will be broadcast on ITV1.
