'Late Late Show': Colin Firth Talks Golden Globes (VIDEO)


First Posted: 01/18/12 06:34 AM ET Updated: 01/18/12 06:34 AM ET

Last year, Colin Firth won a Golden Globe Award for his role in "The King's Speech."

This year, he attended the ceremony as a presenter, which, he told "Late Late Show" (Weeknights., 12:30 a.m. EST on CBS) host Craig Ferguson, was far less stressful.

In fact, the only thing he fretted over was what host Ricky Gervais might say, which he thought lent "a wonderful frisson" to the event.

Firth and Ferguson went on to ponder the role of awards show host, with Firth speculating that as host "you could probably open up an envelope and say anything you want, probably." Even give yourself an award, which is what Firth's young son suggested he do.

"What would stop a person doing that?" mused Firth.

Catch up with Craig and his guests on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" each weeknight at 12:30 a.m. EST on CBS.
