Tom Hooper wins director OscarLos Angeles Times | Feb. 27, 2011 | 8:05 p.m.
Tom Hooper won the Oscar for directing "The King's Speech" at the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday night. It is the first Oscar win for the 38-year-old filmmaker, who was considered to be in a tight race with "The Social Network's" David Fincher for the prize. Hooper, whose film chronicles England's King George VI trying to overcome his stutter, also won the Directors Guild of America Award.
In addition to Fincher, Hooper was competing against Darren Aronofsky for "Black Swan," Joel and Ethan Coen for "True Grit" and David O. Russell for "The Fighter." The Oscars are taking place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.Complete coverage of the Academy Awards, including red carpet photos and all the winners, at http://latimes.com/envelope.
