Film producer Iain Canning, who picked up an Oscar for Best Picture at yesterday’s ceremony, remembered to thank his boyfriend.

One of the four producers behind The King’s Speech, the Brit accepted his award by thanking all the usual suspects including the film’s cast and his parents.

Less customary was his expression of gratitude to his partner.

Iain finished his acceptance speech by saying: “To my boyfriend Ben, you help me every day do what I do. Thank you.”

The King’s Speech was the big winner at this year’s Oscar’s – taking home awards for Best Picture, Best Original screenplay, Best Actor and Best Director.

It has also been a box office hit raking in over $115 million dollars at the US box office alone.
