Although Christian Bale won the Oscar for best Supporting Actor, Geoffrey Rush must have been close behind him.
The roles were different, but I think Rush’s might have been the more difficult. Â I’m not saying Bale didn’t deserve the award, since his role in The Fighter is probably his best so far. Â But there was something about Rush’s role in The King’s Speech.
Before anyone accuses me ofÂ Anglophilia in this matter, I should point out that Christian Bale is British while Geoffrey Rush is Australian.
They both deserved the nomination, and I’m not sad Bale won. Â But Rush did a wonderful job, too.
