In an effort to continue building interest and more awards buzz, The Weinstein Company is hosting a live online Q&A with the cast and director of The King's Speech, my favorite film of 2010 that really needs all the love and support it can get because it's a very hard sell. The actual Q&A is taking place at a screening at the Wadsworth Theater in Los Angeles, where afterward actors Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce, Claire Bloom and director Tom Hooper will gather to answer questions from both the live and cyber audiences. It looks like this will be broadcast all over the web, but we put a Ustream embed below.
The Q&A will begin at around 9:30/9:45PM PST tonight (January 13th) broadcast live. "We have seen the film resonate with people all over the world of every age and we look forward to giving them the opportunity to interact with the actors," said The King Speech producer Iain Canning. You can get more information on the event tonight from the official Facebook page or their official website or The Wrap. This seems like a fun way of bringing the opportunity to ask actors questions right to the fans. And more than anything, I'm just happy to support The King's Speech and its immensely talented cast (I hope Firth gets the Oscar) and crew.
We have embedded that player above from Facebook in hopes that it starts broadcasting at the right time.
