The Oscar was one of many awards received by director John Madden's Elizabethan romantic comedy, which although using some artistic license with Shakespeare's story, featured a host of characters based on real people and also borrowed many elements from The Bard's plays. Appropriately enough, Warbeck actually started out as an actor before turning his hand to writing music!
