It's been quite a week in the Firth household.

First there was a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame and then came one the most coveted prizes of awards season.

On both occasions Colin Firth thanked his leading ladies, dedicating the honour to them.

"I want to thank everybody that has accompanied me on this extraordinary journey," he said last week as his star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame was revealed."But probably more than anybody I could ever imagine Livia, who has walked every step of this with me joyfully and truthfully."

If that wasn't enough of an honour, the Chiswick based actor won the best actor gong at the Golden Globes for his portrayal of King George VI.

Receiving his award he thanked his "exquisitely no-nonsense queen", Helena Bonham Carter.

The King's Speech was nominated for seven Golden Globes and is also expected to figure prominently when the Oscar nominations are announced.
