Especially The Queen Helen Mirren and Dame Judy Dench.

As two of the most revered women in film, their opinions carry a lot of weight in the industry and across the pond. When both ladies were asked about the Oscars this year, they each had one name on the brain - Colin Firth.

Helen told sources she was "100%" certain that Colin would make it home with an Oscar for his performance in The King's Speech. She called his performance "spectacular" and expressed her deep pride to be a "British actor alongside him."

As for Miz Dame Judy, she told sources that she was thrilled to see Colin's name on the ballot as she finds him to be one of the most "special" actors to work with in the biz. She explained:

“I’m very, very pleased for Colin that he is up for an Oscar. Colin has a lot of special qualities and has had them for a long time – not least behaving very badly on set. He is a terrible laugher when things get serious. I hope it is his year though."

Such praise! Not unwarranted either!

We think he has a decent shot at it too and we'll be sure to keep our fingers crossed for him on the big night along with everyone else in jolly ole England!

    The King's Speech is the best film I have seen in a long time, so yes, I would liek Colin Firth to get an Oscar for it!



  2. 2

    It's nice he's finally getting such widespread recognition. He's always been a fine actor.



  3. 3

    Firth deserves it. He blows the competition out of the water. And the film should win, too.



  4. 4

    perez! it's judi dench! i not y! =D



  5. 5

    He should win, he gave the best performance of the years and the kings speech was the best movie of the past couple of years.



  6. 6

    sounds more like a backhanded compliment from miz dench.



  7. 7

    Love these women and Colin Firth is one of the sexiest men around!!!!

    He will definately win. I like the people nominated this year, I was just surprised when Ryan Gosling wasn't nominated for Blue Valentine. It wasn't the best movie this year but his performance was amazing.



  9. 9

    I hope so. He's a wonderful actor, one of my many favourites. I'm routing for him. :)

    It's a sure thing, he was born for the role. Even the Queen liked it. The yanks always go nuts for royal stuff so it's a guaranteed win as far as I'm concerned.

    I've not seen the Javier Bordem film, but Jesse Eisenberg and James Franco were just being Jesse Eisenberg and James Franco as far as I could see. No real acting involved.

    Yes Jeff Bridges was great in True Grit, but he won an award last year for Crazy Heart when Colin lost out for A Single Man, so it's his turn this year!
