Colin Firth bags ‘Actor Of The Year’ gong at London Critics` Circle Film Awards
London: Colin Firth has been honoured with ‘Actor Of The Year’ gong for ‘The King’s Speech’ at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards.
The period drama picked up three accolades at the BFI Southbank event, including British Film Of The Year and British Director Of The Year for Tom Hooper, reports the Daily Mail.
However, it was Facebook film ‘The Social Network’ which did one better, taking home four trophies, including Film Of The Year, Director Of The Year and British Actor In A Supporting Role for rising star Andrew Garfield.
Unfortunately Firth’s co-star Helena Bonham Carter missed out on British Actress Of The Year to Lesley Manville for ‘Another Year’.
The big shock of the night was Annette Bening beating Natalie Portman to the Actress Of The Year trophy for her portrayal of a lesbian mother in ‘The Kids Are All Right’.
