Colin Firth will soon be picking up another honour after he was awarded the Freedom of the City of London.
The actor, who was recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours with a CBE last month, is expected to accept the honour sometime in the next six months.
The father-of-three is no stranger to awards and won the Best Actor Oscar for his role as stuttering monarch King George VI.
He has also been recognised for his work on behalf of his wife's native Italy.
Colin, who married producer Livia Giuggioli in 1997, was made a Commander of the Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity in 2005.
A spokesman for the City of London Corporation said: "Colin Firth has enjoyed a remarkable year, having been honoured with a CBE by Her Majesty the Queen, and winning an Oscar, Bafta and Golden Globe for his performance in The King's Speech.
"He is a very deserving candidate for the Freedom and we look forward to welcoming him and his guests to the Square Mile for his ceremony."
The Freedom of the City of London is believed to date back to 1237 and is granted by the City of London Corporation to celebrate outstanding contributions to London life.
Many of the traditional privileges associated with it, such as driving sheep over London Bridge or being hanged with a silken rope, no longer exist.
