Colin Firth Wins Best Actor Oscar

Colin Firth has won the Oscar for best actor at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

Firth, who missed out on the award last year, won the Oscar for his role in the critically acclaimed Kings Speech.

The English actor, perhaps best remembered by women worldwide for his role at Mr Darcy in the BBC product of Pride and Prejudice, kept the audience in laughter, noting that his legs felt like he might end up dancing.

Firth has previously picked up a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama and the 2010 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his role playing King George VI.
