100 BAFTA Moments - Meryl Streep Loses Her Shoe

6 February 2015

2 days to go - Colin Firth comes to Meryl's rescue

It's one of the most memorable moments in recent BAFTA history: after receiving the second BAFTA of her career for her performance in The Iron Lady (2011), Meryl Streep walked onto the stage, only to lose her shoe! However help was at hand, as Colin Firth became her Prince Charming to make sure she delivered her acceptance speech with both shoes on. 

In Streep's career, she has been nominated for 14 BAFTAs, winning twice. Watch her Life in Pictures interview on BAFTA Guru.
