Colin Firth Wins Best Actor Oscar for 'The King's Speech' (VIDEO)
Last year he went home among the many who are just happy to have been nominated for their work, while this year he picked up the Oscar for his portrayal of King George VI in 'The King's Speech.'
"I have a feeling my career's just peaked," he said in opening his acceptance speech. While his role was of a man who struggled with a stammer that affected his ability to give speeches, Firth showed no such problems.
He was even eloquent in describing his desire to dance. "I'm afraid I have to warn you that I'm experiencing stirrings somewhere in the upper abdominals which are threatening to form themselves into dance moves," he said. "Joyous as they may be for me, it would be extremely problematic if they make it to my legs before I get off stage."
Of that we think he's wrong. Who wouldn't want to see a euphoric Firth give in to the dance inside. Perhaps he could convince Best Actress winner Natalie Portman to join him. She's a trained dancer now, after all.
