Oscar controversy watch: Recognize that room from "The King's Speech"?
This week in pre-Oscar controversy: You know the room in "The King's Speech" (12 nominations, including Best Picture and Art Direction) where George VI takes his lessons? Well, some sharp-eyed cinephile recognized and remembered its high ceilings and strikingly mottled walls from. . . a 2008 porn flick. And then blabbed about it to the Internet. The porno's director, fellow by name of Jonno, confirmed to Movieline.com Wednesday that he did indeed use the same historic home London for his shoot as Oscar-nominated director Tom Hooper. Fun fact: Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" video was also filmed there!
