BC - I've not seen anything here saying that he won, only that he was nominated. He did, however, win a golden globe for Equus. And considering he was only 18 when it was made, I believe he deserved both.

Colin Firth, on the other hand, did win an Oscar for The King's Speech, as you said. But, he should have won the year before for A Single Man. He was brilliant in it.

Ummm, Peter Firth was nominated for an Academy Award for 'Equus', but he has not, to my knowledge, won an Oscar. *Colin* Firth, unrelated, just won for 'The King's Speech'.

Looks to me like Cynthia Nixon has the best agent of all the SATC girls. She has a great role in The Big C and now this.
