Colin Firth was named Best Actor at last night's (16.01.11) Golden Globes.
The 50-year-old actor was given the prestigious accolade for his portrayal of stammering British monarch King George VI in 'The King's Speech' and had the audience at Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton Hotel in fits of laughter as he accepted the award.
'Black Swan' and 'The King's Speech' lead the nomination for this year's 17th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.
The psychological thriller, which stars Natalie Portman as a ballet dancer experiencing a mental trauma, and the Tom Hooper-directed drama starring Colin Firth as Britain's King George VI both received nominations in four categories, including Best Cast in a Motion Picture and Leading Actor for the main stars.
Jeff Bridges would like to retire from acting, to be replaced by a digital version of himself.
The 'Tron: Legacy' star plays opposite a computer generated likeness of himself in his 30s in the film, and said new technology which transposes his facial expressions and look to the character means he could theoretically quit acting, and employ his digital version instead.
'Mad Men' was named the Best Drama Series for a third year in a row at the Emmy Awards last night (29.08.10).
The TV show - which follows the employees of an advertising agency in 1960's New York - picked up the Best Drama prize and the Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, won by Matthew Weiner and Erin Levy.
