Bafta Awards: Colin takes another one home!!


Colin Firth with his Bafta award for best actor.

It wasn’t a total rout for “The King’s Speech” Sunday night at the Baftas, the British version of the Oscars. The “ur-British movie” did take home trophies for best film, best British film, best original screenplay, best score and best acting prizes for Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter and Colin Firth. But David Fincher won best director for “The Social Network,” which also took best adapted screenplay for Aaron Sorkin. Mr. Sorkin attended, Mr. Fincher did not – he’s shooting “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” – so his award was accepted by his stars Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield. But it was Mr. Firth’s speech that was the hit of the event in London on Sunday night. (Mr. Firth also won a Bafta last year, for “A Single Man.”)
