Thank you to my wonderful actors, the triangle of man love which is Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and me. I’m only here because of you guys. Helena, I hope that reference doesn't make you jealous.

My mum, in 2007, was invited by some Australian friends in London to a fringe theatre play reading of an unrehearsed, unproduced play called The King's Speech. Thank God she went, because she rung me up and said 'Tom, I think I've found your next film.' So with this tonight, I honour you, and the moral of the story is 'listen to your mother'.
