Benedict Cumberbatch didn’t fare too poorly at this year’s Oscars. He appeared in more nominated films than any other attendee (12 Years a Slave, August: Osage County, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug and Star Trek Into Darkness), and he won the entire red carpet when he executed this photobomb on the thoroughly deserving U2. But since The Fifth Estate failed to attract the awards buzz some early pundits predicted, Cumberbatch is yet to earn a nomination of his own.That’s all but guaranteed to change next year, now that notorious awards season bulldog Harvey Weinstein has acquired the rights to Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game. Cumberbatch stars as pioneering mathematician and scientist Turing, whose research at Bletchley Park provided vital intelligence to the Allies in World War II. He was prosecuted for homosexuality in 1952, chose chemical castration over jail time, and died two years later in an apparent suicide.It’s a powerful story only made timelier by Turing’s posthumous pardon last year, and Weinstein is already campaigning hard for Cumberbatch in particular and the film in general.
New York Times - Benedict Cumberbatch The case of the Accidental Superstar
How does a normal day of a dragon look like?
Hello! Indeed he is and we have to make him win, we need another speech in shorts :P
That moment in your childhood when you realize that Diagon Alley is just the word diagonally….
And the Mirror of Erised is just the word desire backwards.
Didn’t even realize. Does that mean Knockturn Alley is nocturnally (dark/night)?
Yes, and Grimmauld Place is a play on grim old place.
HOLY SHIT this moment came to me at 21 ok
