Firth said, “What Tom Ford doesn’t know is I have the email in my outbox telling him I could not possibly do this.”
However it was The Hurt Locker that had the big night winning six awards – Best Film, Best Director for Kathryn Bigelow, original screenplay, cinematography, editing and sound.
Bigelow, who received the gong from Clive Owen, beat off competition from ex-husband, Avatar director James Cameron, among others to win her award. “I was so, so lucky to have an incredible cast and crew,” she said. “This is really amazing and humbling.”
