They’re on Sunday. And it would be a shocker if Colin Firth didn’t win Best Actor for his performance in The King’s Speech. Aside from his category though, there will be more a little more suspense at the BAFTAs than the Oscars. You know, the BAFTAs gave a lot more love to Inception than The Fighter. Full Story

Something really bothers me when I hear it, no matter who it is who says it, even actors I love. I hate whey they say “my cast”. And “my crew”. Like, who the f-ck are you? Is it so hard to make reference to “our cast”, “our crew”? Maybe for them it’s not a problem. Full Story

Finally had a chance to watch the Newsweek Actor Roundtable. I love these videos. But they’re an investment. If you do have an hour at lunch, or at home later though, I promise it’s more worth your while than most talk show interviews. Because it’s not so much what they say, it’s what they say to each other. Full Story

Colin with a headset

I hear you. You need to get rid of the visual of my dad peeing. Perhaps Colin Firth wearing a headset might help? Here he is, at the Apple Store on Regent Street in London, promoting The King’s Speech with director Tom Hooper. He looks great. Really, really great given his travel schedule lately. Full Story

Colin Firth received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. Of course his wife Livia was there with him. But also Guy Pearce who does a great job as dipsy Edward VIII in The King’s Speech. (Side note: Madonna is making a movie about Wallis Simpson. And I wonder if she’ll be whitewashing those alleged Nazi sympathies. Full Story

Colin is a talker

Colin Firth and his wife Livia were in Paris last night for the French premiere of The King’s Speech. Have you seen it yet??? As you know, Firth is, at present, the favourite to win Best Actor, even though we’re still 3 weeks away from nomination day. Things can change, anything can change, but there is no question, on this performance he is worthy of it, and on reputation and career accomplishment, he certainly has earned it. Full Story

Colin takes two

While the National Board of Review awarded Best Actor to Jesse Eisenberg, The Washington DC Film Critics chose Colin Firth. Firth also took home the Best Actor award, not surprisingly, last night at the British Independent Film Awards in London. It’s undeniable that he’s the favourite, which is a great position to be in, but also a sucky one. Full Story

This is your weekend assignment. Because who has the time during the week to spend an hour on this, even though it’s 60 minutes of pure amazingness? The Hollywood Reporter Actors’ Roundtable is embedded below. Enjoy it, maybe over breakfast on Sunday, really savour the experience. I broke it up into two parts on Wednesday night during my playlist making, loved it, but wonder if I would have even more if I hadn’t paused. Full Story

Really. He is. I received an email yesterday from Isabel who told me about Colin Firth’s article in Vogue which reminded me I hadn’t even opened my December issue yet. Of course I immediately went to check. And there he is. On page 292, maybe the best photo of him ever taken. And then the interview. Full Story

He’s not a second guest

He really isn’t. But the way the timing worked out yesterday at Letterman, Colin Firth had to be. Any show producer would have made the same call. After all, Jerry Seinfeld was there. And he delivered a short stand-up routine. And he spent time on the chair with Dave, talking about his trip to the White House. Full Story

Arguments for: - His performance in The King’s Speech should earn him another Oscar nomination, making it two years in a row. And the timing was similar for Hugh Jackman two years ago like this too, as Australia was just about to open wide when the SMA was announced.- He’s Mr Darcy AND Mark Darcy, he’s Love Actually, there’s an undeniable widespread affection that women feel for Colin Firth very closely associated with how they felt when they watched those movies, and these movies are among all time favourites. Full Story
