(CBS) There was no stuttering for Colin Firth during his Oscar's acceptance speech for Best Actor.
Firth, 50, won for his phenomenal portrayal of King George VI who battled to overcome a horrible stutter. George is eventually victorious and delivers an inspiring speech to Britain at the dawn of WWII.
On Sunday night, Firth was no less eloquent - adding dashes of humor and humility.
"I have a feeling my career has just peaked," he deadpanned when he hit the stage. Then continued.
"I'm afraid I have to warn you that I'm experiencing stirrings somewhere in the upper abdominals which are threatening to form themselves into dance moves. Which, joyous as they may be for me, they'll be extremely problematic if they make it to my legs before I get off stage."
He also thanked his wife "Livia for putting up with my fleeting delusions of royalty and who I hold responsible for this and for really everything good that has happened since i met her."
This was his second Oscar nomination and first win.
