Once upon a time people were looking at Hyde Park on Hudson as one of the films to be reckoned with this coming awards season. After all, it was a biopic of Franklin D. Roosevelt focussing on the first visit ever of British monarchs to the U.S. meant to bolster American support for the British side on the eve of World War II. Not to mention that the visiting royalty were King George IV and the Queen Consort Elizabeth, the couple at the center of The King’s Speech, which had of course won Best Picture a couple of years ago.
