'The King's Speech' was the big winner at the 2011 Oscars, winning four awards, including Best Picture.

The British period drama, about King George VI's attempt to overcome his stammer, also walked away with awards for Best Director (Tom Hooper), Best Actor (Colin Firth) and Best Original Screenplay.

The film tied fellow Best Picture nominee 'Inception' in total Oscars, as the latter took home Best Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects.

Much to the surprise of no one, Natalie Portman took the stage to graciously accept the award for Best Actress for her performance as the insane ballet dancer Nina Sayers in 'Black Swan.' This is Portman's first win and second overall nomination. She was previously nominated for her performance in Mike Nichols' 2004 drama 'Closer.'
