2 December 2014

68 days to go - Kate Winslet presents Colin Firth with his first BAFTA award in 2010

Colin Firth received his first BAFTA in 2010 for his performance in Tom Ford's A Single Man (2009). It was the fourth time lucky for Firth, who had previously been nominated for Tumble Down (1988), Pride and Prejudice (1995) and Bridget Jones's Diary (2001). This lovely photograph by Greg Williams shows Kate Winslet congratulating Firth backstage, after presenting the award to him. 

The following year Firth repeated his achievement by winning the Leading Actor award again, this time for his role as George VI in Tom Hooper's The King's Speech (2010). Watch Firth discuss his career highlights on BAFTA Guru.
