Colin Firth gets a star!! He will be the 2,429th star on the very long sidewalk of stars on Hollywood Blvd.
Firth is getting a lot of buzz for his portrayal of King George VI in The King's Speech. He is one of the favorites in the running to receive an Oscar nomination.
Maybe this star will help? Heck, he's already received a Golden Globe nomination for the role.
Firth finished out 2010 on top. He appeared in Tom Ford's A Single Man, for which he received multiple nominations including a Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and an Academy Award.
Firth will be honored outside the British pub The Pig & Whistle on January 13th. Congrats Colin Firth!!
