By on 13 December, 2010

Actor Colin Firth sparked a fresh Oscars buzz yesterday when he was awarded the Best Actor prize by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for his role in ‘The King’s Speech‘!

The star is a frontrunner for an Academy Award nomination after critics handed him a trophy for his portrayal of British monarch King George VI.

The Social Network‘ was also praised by L.A. film experts and went home with the Best Film and Best Screenplay honours. The Best Director nod was tied between David Fincher (‘The Social Network‘) and Olivier Assayas (‘Carlos‘).

Other winners included ‘Mother‘ star Kim Hye-ja, who won the Best Actress prize, while the Best Supporting Actor and Actress were given to Niels Arestrup for his role in ‘A Prophet‘ and Jacki Weaver for her turn in ‘Animal Kingdom‘. ‘Toy Story 3‘ won the Best Animation prize while the documentary honour went to ‘Last Train Home‘.

I’ll be catching ‘The King’s Speech‘ in a few weeks time, and I can’t wait!
