Benedict Cumberbatch Got an Emmy Nomination For His 36th Birthday!

It’s hard to believe that only a few years ago we had no notion of how satisfying saying/thinking/writing-in-frosting-on-random-cakes the words “Benedict” and “Cumberbatch” would be. Our lives were a little darker because of this, we’re sure.

The dashing cheek-boney actor and Tor.com patron saint turns 36 today and as a present the Emmy committee has nominated him for the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Movie or Mini-Series award for his work on Sherlock! (Right alongside Martin Freeman’s Supporting Actor Emmy nomination for his role as Watson!) Happy birthday, Benedict Cumberbatch!

In his and Sherlock’s honor, we’re all planning on staying inside, brooding, being anti-social, and compiling all the weird ways Cumberbatch has popped up on the site.
