Happy birthday, Benedict Cumberbatch! The Sherlock star and beloved geek dreamboat rang in his 36th year with an Emmy nomination, which is just the most kick-ass news of the day. It’s so affirming to see genre stars getting recognized for their incredible work! If you haven’t watched Sherlock yet, I’d suggest you log on to Netflix and then read this excellent profile of Benedict. And if you’re already a diehard Cumberbitch or if you don’t have time at the moment to watch the series in one sitting (which you’re gonna want to do), might I interest you in our collection of Cumberbatch .gifs? Fetched from Tumblr, they require no prior knowledge beyond an enduring love for this man.
More good news! Turns out a bunch of Benedict’s fans raised $11,000 in his name for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Touched by this gesture, Benedict posted this message:
The amount of effort, love, joy and celebration as well as money raised! I’m speechless. Pls pass on my love and gratitude. Thank you!! Bx
Awwwww. So much love right now.
