Although headlines were made on Sunday when Colin Firth won a BAFTA for the Leading Actor category for his role in The King’s Speech, the awards ceremony is still making news. Check that — it’s not so much what went on during the ceremony but rather, the after-party! The 50-year-old actor apparently drank so much champagne that he left his trophy at a bar!
According to the Daily Star (via PopEater), Colin went home after a post-BAFTA fete without the coveted award! He sent someone later on to retrieve it. Since he’s been nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role, it looks like this actor may have some more partying in his future.
It sounds like he already knew what the night had in store when he told the publication after he won yet before the celebrating began: “It feels amazing to win awards, but tomorrow I’ll be back down to earth with a bang, on the school run and taking the bins out. I might as well make the most of it tonight.”
