Geoffrey Rush

Oscar nomination

25 Jan, 2011

Rush is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 83rd Academy Awards for portraying Lionel Logue in The King’s Speech.

As an Australian, I’m as excited to be recognized and honored by the Academy as my character must have been when his London speech therapy business flourished when the future King Of England happened to pop by one day. This story has struck such a rich resonant chord with audiences of all ages, which is very exciting — to have your work honored by your industry peers is even better.
