BC's GQ Award Acceptance Speech
Fresh from his recent Emmy win on August 26th, Ben attended the GQ Men of the Year Awards on September 2nd in London. He won the award for being GQ Magazine's Actor of the Year and much to the Cumbercollective's surprise, he accepted his award a little bit drunk!
GQ also gave Benedict his own cover (again) this month featuring two swoon-worthy new pictures!! You can order a copy here!
**Be sure to email Newsstand that you want Benedict's cover, otherwise they'll send you a random one out of the six different covers.**
ALL HAIL THE BATCH has a photo gallery that which has currently been viewed over 11.1k times and is home to over 1.7k (including HQs) images of Benedict at events, photoshoots, his films, theatre performances and TV series etc.
These are the trailers for Benedict's upcoming biopic, The Imitation Game. He plays the WWII Enigma Codebreaker, Alan Turing. The film had its world premiere at the 41st Telluride Film Festival to rave reviews.
The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain's top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.
The long-awaited fourth series of Sherlock is due to starting filming at the end of 2015 and air sometime in 2016. Is he alive? or isn't he?... The mystery behind Moriarty will finally be solved!
