With the up and coming release of Bridget Jones’s Baby I thought I would put together a list of my favourite quotes from the previous two films, Bridget Jones Diary and Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason. The first film I remember not enjoying when I first saw it but grew on me in time for Edge of Reason. Not forgetting starting my love for Colin Firth, oh Mark Darcy!

Ahead of this Sunday’s Golden Globes and the up and coming Oscars, Colin Firth has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is tipped to be nominated and win the best actor Oscar at this years awards.
Firth has come along way since being Mr Darcy in the TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Over the years he has taken on some very different roles. The last couple of years the roles he has taken on have really helped to show what a fantastic actor he is. When it comes to the romantic comedy films such as Bridget Jones Diary and Love Actually he is always the nice guy. In real life he seems to be just as nice as he is in those roles.
It really is fantastic seeing a British actor going so far in Hollywood and getting a star on the Walk of Fame. The question now is will the Oscar be following for Mr Firth? Let’s hope so, he really does put in a brilliant performance in The King’s Speech. We don’t have much longer to wait, to see how many more awards Colin is going to pick up over awards season.
Onto the top 30 . . . 30-21 . . .
