The King’s Speech had:
a) Posh Brits: Hollywood’s always loved them
b) Wise outsider dispensing valuable life-lessons: another beloved Hollywood trope
c) Overcoming disabilities
d) WW2 and the struggle against Nazis
So you had a posh Brit overcoming disabilities and learning valuable life-lessons from a wise outsider while rallying his nation against Nazis. It’s the superperfectaof Oscar baits, a towering pinnacle of the form. Poor Social Network never had a chance.
