I don`t remember receiving the Oscar: Colin Firth

London: `King`s Speech` star Colin Firth says receiving the best actor Oscar was a numbing experience and he does not have any memory of the proud moment.

The 51-year-old star does no remember accepting the Golden Globe and Oscar for his portrayal of George VI in the British drama, the Daily Mail reported.

"It has a slightly numbing effect...that`s what`s completely extraordinary but I think when major things happen to us, whether good or bad, there`s a slight shock," the actor said.

While accepting the Golden trophy this year, the actor had joked, "I`ve a feeling my career`s just peaked."

Firth, however, feels that the win has given him more freedom in his career.

"In terms of one`s attitude to it, you can either see it as pressure to live up to something or as taking the pressure off and going, `Well, I`ve got that now. I`ll do whatever the hell I please`. And that`s a far more pleasant way to see it," he said.
