Sure, Colin Firth is having a  pretty good year, but now you can walk all over him.

The British actor, the inarguable frontrunner for this year's Best Actor Oscar for playing a stuttering George VI in The King's Speech, just received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Not a bad way to kick of his Golden Globes weekend, eh?

The suave 50-year-old thesp, who's also up for Golden Globe, Critics' Choice and Screen Actors Guild awards, turned up for today's ceremony accompanied by his wife, Italian producer Livia Giuggioli, and pal and King's Speech costar Guy Pearce.

Firth, who has the 2,429th star on the Walk of Fame, scored Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations last year for his turn in A Single Man. Other notable credits include The English Patient, Shakespeare in Love, Bridget Jones's Diary and Love Actually.

It's good to be the king.
