Colin Firth - Colin Firth Marches On With Bafta Nomination For Kings Speech

COLIN FIRTH, the British actor who took home the prize for 'Best Actor' at Sunday evening's GOLDEN GLOBES, has continued his successful run through this year's award season after he was nominated for a BAFTA today (18th January 2011). The actor was recognised again in the category of 'Best Actor' for his portrayal of KING GEORGE VI in the acclaimed 'The King's Speech'.
If the 50-year-old is successful at February's awards ceremony, he would become the first actor for over forty years to win the Best Actor BAFTA in successive years. Firth scooped the award in 2010 for his role in the TOM FORD directed drama 'A Single Man'. 'The Kings Speech' lost out to 'The Social Network' for the honour of 'Best Film' in Los Angeles on Sunday, and Firth's latest flick will once again do battle with DAVID FINCHER's Facebook film come the BAFTAS. Also looking to take home the evening's biggest prize will be the sci-fi drama 'Inception', COEN BROTHERS western 'True Grit' and the DARREN ARONOFSKY thriller 'Black Swan'.
Elsewhere in the nominations, NATALIE PORTMAN was once again recognised in the category of 'Best Actress' and she is hotly tipped to replicate her GOLDEN GLOBES success. The late British actor PETE POSTLETHWAITE received a posthumous 'Supporting Actor' nomination for his role in the BEN AFFLECK movie 'The Town'.
