Geoffrey Rush received a Golden Globe nod for Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for his role as Lionel Logue in 'The King's Speech'. He has two Golden Globes under his belt.

He said in a statement: "Playing an Australian commoner called upon to teach an reluctant English King some life lessons for me was fascinating in itself. To have it embraced by American audiences and to be so honored by the HFPA only endorses how global this story has become. Seeing a small scale project play into an international arena makes this all the more worthwhile. I'm very proud to be a part of this film and thrilled for my colleagues who were also nominated in such illustrious company".

"The King's Speech" received the most Golden Globe nominations - a total of seven, including Best Motion Picture - Drama. (Pictured: Geoffrey Rush appears in a scene from the 2010 movie 'The King's Speech'.) ( Photo / Merrick Morton / Columbia TriStar Marketing Group)
