After winning the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in The King’s Speech, we’re hearing rumors that Colin Firth is going to be knighted!
Colin playing King George VI in the epic movie and the royal family is said to be impressed with his performance. So much, in fact, that they are considering knighting him for it!
A source said, “Colin has been a great ambassador for Britain throughout his career and his sensitive portrayal of King George VI has won him much admiration among the royal family — and of course, the film’s many fans.”
Buckingham Palace has refused to confirm the rumors, but it is a possibility. The Queen was said to have thoroughly enjoyed his performance in the Oscar winning movie. A source said, “The Queen loves a good film. The King’s Speech is close to the bone as it is a portrayal of her family in the 1930s. But she found it moving and enjoyable. She was clearly amused by some of the lighter moments.”
We will find out if Colin is on the list before the Queen’s Birthday Honors list is announced in June. It would be awesome if he becomes Sir Colin Firth, don’t you think?
