The King's Speech star, Colin Firth, was brought crashing to earth last night when his seeming unstoppable run of awards was halted.

Best acting prize at the Evening Standard Awards went to Andrew Garfield for his role in The Social Network, a film about the founding of Facebook.

Having won the Golden Globe and the Screen Actors' Guild Awards for his portrayal of a stammering George VI, Firth is considered in many circles to be a shoe-in for the best acting Oscar later this month.

We spoke to him after last night's surprise - without co-star Geoffre Rush, who played the role of the King's voice coach.

"F-f-f-f-f-f-f-f-.... I'll g-g-g-g-Get th-th-th-that f-f-f-f-f-f-...

"I m-m-m-m-m-mean... who does that c-c-c-c-c-c ... who dodododoes he think he is, c-c-c-c-c-c-c. oh, F-f-f-f-f-orget it!
