Colin Firth's BAFTA Speech

Brevity and wit characterised Colin Firth’s acceptance speech at the BAFTA Awards in London.

In stark contrast to other less well-worked speeches, the Best Actor winner related a story about how his email declining the role in the Tom Ford movie, A Single Man, might have been sent had he not been interrupted by a fridge repair man.

Marked by regular laughs, his short speech paid fulsome tribute to his director, his colleagues, his wife Livia and “the fridge guy”.
