"Something has to be done!" Colin jokingly told Today. "I don't know. What I felt last year, you know, your head spins when you hear the news. What I felt last year I don't know if it has to get any better than this really.

"If you wait 50 years for something and then you hit a moment like this it's celebration enough," he added. "So I'm just thrilled to be at the party."

And having Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush nominated for the film as well is cause for celebration!
