And The List Of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Award Nominations Just Keeps Growing

January 9, 2015 / Posted by:

Look at that smug lizard – he’s practically visualizing his trophy case buckling under the weight of all those prospective awards. “Oh heavens, I don’t know if I could accept another! The shelves are already frightfully overburdened. Okay, maybe just an Oscar…”

Speaking of, it appears creepy otter man Benedict Cumberbatch is one step closer to an Oscar nomination. The fancy British half-brother of the Academy Awards, the BAFTAs, were announced today by the newly-engaged Stephen Fry and hot piece of haddock n’ chips Sam Claflin, and one of the first names to be called was that of Bluegrass Cobblepot himself for Leading Actor for The Imitation Game. Blunderson’s Imitation Game co-star Keira Knightley also got a nomination for Supporting Actress.

The list of BAFTA nominees is after the cut, and it sounds like the British still haven’t forgiven Rachel Green for ruining Emma Waltham’s wedding, because there was no Leading Actress nomination for Jennifer Aniston. NO! It’s because they never screened Cake across the pond.

Well, there you have it – once again, Angelina Jolie goes unrecognized for her directorial work on Unbroken. RUDE! Don’t they know she was knighted or sainted or whatever by The Queen? Doesn’t that mean anything anymore? Um, actually – don’t answer that.
