Darcy (Colin Firth) wins Oscar!!!

Here is a still from the famed ’95 BBC/A&E version of P&P.  Colin was then just 35 y.o.   Yay, we Austen fans knew him (err… recognized his talent) then! 

On Sunday, Colin (now 50) won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in The King’s Speech.  I LOVED how flustered  he was! 

Livia (his gorgeous Italian-born wife) and Colin looked VERY elegant on the red carpet prior to the show.

Here is Colin looking adorable (yet a bit goofy) as posh, yet kind-hearted, barrister Mark Darcy in Bridget Jones Diary.  Yes, this character was inspired by Austen’s Darcy.  Helen Fielding, the author, wanted Colin for the role all along!
