Helena Bonham Carter Won Early BAFTAs
Helena Bonham Carter was one of the early winners at Sunday, February 13's British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards (BAFTAs), walking away with the Best Supporting Actress title for her performance in "The King's Speech".
The star, who plays Britain's late and beloved Queen Mother in the acclaimed film, beat out competition from Amy Adams (The Fighter), Barbara Hershey (Black Swan), Lesley Manville (Another Year) and Miranda Richardson (Made In Dagenham) for the prize.
As she collected her honor, she told the star-studded crowd, "I'm so used to losing, it's quite a strange feeling to win", before adding, "I think I should thank the Royal family frankly because they've done wonders for my career."
It was the first big BAFTAs triumph for "The King's Speech" - it is nominated for an impressive 14 awards at the 2011 event, which is taking place at London's Royal Opera House.
