Helena Bonham Carter wins Best Supporting Actress for ‘The King’s Speech’ - 64th BAFTA Portraits | 13/02/11.


“You know what I’m so used to losing it’s quite a strange feeling to win but ah it feels very nice. But no I.. children if you’re watching this it’s not about the winning! Em..it still feels nice. 

Erm, I’m thrilled to be considered in the same category as my fellow supporting actresses, and I’m not just sucking up, you’re all brilliant. Erm, my underskirt has got hitched up.. this is not a good moment. 

I think I should thank the Royal Family frankly because they’ve done wonders for my career. Erm this year, I seem to be playing Queens with ever decreasing head sizes. Next year I’ll be pin headed Queen. 

Erm, ok! I know I’ve gotta be succinct. I need to thank, I’m really really going to try to do this fast. First of all can I just say that I have fun and I love it and it’s my privilege to keep on working in this over subscribed profession and there is so many talented, talented people out there who never get recognition so I’m incredibly lucky to get this, and to get recognised and to get parts, and to go out and make a living by getting dressed up, pretending to be someone else for the day and then getting paid lots of money! And then I get an award for it so it’s as good as it gets.. Erm, erm, thank you..

 I’ll just say that I would love at this stage to walk off and say “I did it all by myself” just like my three year old but I didn’t, I’ve got a few people to thank. I’ve gotta thank all the producers, it was all your fault, you started it and Tom Hooper, thank you for not cutting me, for giving me all of my close ups, for making sure that the Queen Mother wasn’t totally eclipsed by the brilliance, the double brilliance of Jeffery and Colin. King Colin, you deserve everything you’re getting, and erm Jeffery you really should be the best supporting actress, I know where ever you are, cus he only, he really did have only eyes for.. for you.. 

Erm, and finally, finally finally.. OH the people who look after me! Melody, Carin Brott, Adam Isaacs, Shelly Browning.. I might never get this again so I might as well just, really stretch out! Shelly Browning, Adam Isaacs, yeah so all of them. Have I done, Nicky Vanguild aaand and then finally Tim Burton, who is my genius, and thank you for the big headed Queen and thank you for, well, helping me make the 8th and 9th wonders of the world, that are our children. 

And then finally finally, I’m really really getting there! *laughs* .. Erm, finally, finally, we get all the awards in this profession, there are many groups that go unsung. I wanted to dedicate this to all the best supporting wives around, in the world, existing. Queen Mother herself, and.. and my mum. And there’s no doubt, that were my father here, he would of given this to her. She was the most best, supporting wife you could of ever wished for. Thank you.”

Hi there. So coriolanus runs to feb 13. Bafta are on the 16th. You think we might get RedCarpetLuminous!Tom? If he attends I hope that the TTDW London 3-piece was not just a borrow from Giorgio A but something he will recycle. Do you have a favourite RedCarpet!Tom?

I didn’t even THINK about the BAFTAs OMG. YES. I need another redcarpet!Tom.

My faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite red carpet look for him is **choking** this:

Aaaaaaaaand whole body shot FTW:

With gratuitous crotch, of course. OMG he’s just glowing…like a transcendended being…………….

So yah. Silver Suit of Sex, as TIDKWE calls it.  Favorite. 

Though he does seem drawn to the darker suits lately….I’d love to see the Tux of Eternal Tactile Sex again…
