London (ANI): Historical drama The King's Speech won the
top accolade at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with
director Tom Hooper winning the Outstanding Directorial Achievement
award. Hooper, 38, paid tribute to his mother, who had drawn his
attention to the story after she attended a reading of the tale.
"She came home and she rang me up and she said, 'I think I found
your next movie'," the BBC quoted him as saying. "The moral of the
story is, listen to your mother," he stated.
The film, which tells the tale of how King George VI overcame
his stammer, has also been nominated for 12 Academy Awards.
