Colin Firth: BAFTA Best Leading Actor Winner

Colin Firth: BAFTA Best Leading Actor Winner

Making for quite the memorable evening, Colin Firth was a big winner at the Orange British Academy Film Awards 2011 in London, England on Sunday (February 13).

Held at The Royal Opera House, the 50-year-old English actor took home the prize of Best Leading Actor for his stirring performance in "The King's Speech".

In claiming the honors, Mr Colin Firth beat out fellow nominees Javier Bardem, Jeff Bridges, Jesse Eisenberg and James Franco.

The ceremony saw Jonathan Ross as host for the fifth year while being broadcast on BBC1.
Of the event, Deputy Bafta chairman David Parfitt was high on British films this year around, as he said, "British film has always punched above its weight in the film world. British film is always quite well represented in the Oscars as well as the Baftas."

"It's not that we have a particular bias. British film in general plays well around the world because it's very good."
