BAFTAs 2012: Meryl Streep loses shoe while collecting award.


BAFTAs 2012: Meryl Streep loses shoe while collecting award

By Orlando Parfitt 

An otherwise predictable BAFTAs was livened up when Meryl Streep had a footwear malfunction.

As expected, ‘The Artist’ continued its inevitable march towards Oscar glory by scooping up the big gongs, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor.

2012 BAFTA film awards highlights.

But the sedate ceremony, which was broadcast on BBC1, briefly came to life when Streep made a right mess of collecting her Best Actress gong and needed a helping hand from Colin Firth.

Streep won for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Iron Lady’.

‘Where’s my shoe?’… Streep loses footwear

After her name was read out, the actress seemed unsure whether she needed her sparkly clutch bag. She started carrying it towards the stage, only to stop, shake her head and hand it to an audience member.

Then as she walked across the stage her shoe fell off. She paused, pointed at it, then abandoned the rogue item and continued towards the rostrum.

My hero… Colin Firth presents rogue stiletto

Luckily the ever-so-lovely Colin Firth, who had read out the Best Actress nominations beforehand, was her knight in shining armour.

He picked up the shoe, knelt down in front of her and presented it to her foot. The duo then shared a couple of friendly kisses.

Very friendly… Oscar-winners share smooch

"Thank you so much!" blustered Streep. "That couldn’t have gone worse!".

Here’s hoping her footwear is more secure when the Oscars come around in a couple of weeks.

If only the rest of the BAFTAs was so exciting…
