Director Tom Hooper said:  “We are all very proud that the academy has recognised our work with a nomination in every category.  We wanted to make an emotional picture which people remembered and which wasn’t based on Prince Charles – because he isn’t a King and we wanted to maintain some believability – and we’re pleased that our achievements have been recognised.”
