Colin Firth to Take a Walk of Fame Star


Colin Firth


Already honored in a lot of critics awards and nominated for the upcoming Oscars, the 'King's Speech' actor is to preserve his name in Hollywood.

The honors keep coming for actor Colin Firth - he'll unveil the 2,429th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next week, January 13. The actor, who is an Oscars Best Actor favorite for his portrayal of King George VI in "The King's Speech", will be saluted outside Hollywood Boulevard's British pub The Pig & Whistle next Thursday.

It has been a great year for the Brit - Firth won the BAFTA Award in 2010 for his performance in Tom Ford's "A Single Man", which also earned him nominations for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. He also garnered the Performance of the Year Award at the 2010 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, as well as the London Critics Circle Film Award for British Actor of the Year.

Firth has been nominated for both a Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe honour this year for his portrayal of King George, which has already earned him the top acting prize from critics in Chicago, Illinois and Phoenix, Arizona.
