I thought it was absolutely glorious. It made me incandescently happy. I thought it was so brilliant. He got right up there, isn’t he? I love him for it. And I’ll love him forever. I think it’s my favorite thing he’s ever done.
Oscar Spotlight: 75 years ago, 1939, it is considered Hollywood’s Greatest Year. It was the year that Vivien Leigh & John Wayne became a household names, Greta Garbo laughed, Dorothy went over the rainbow, Heathcliff and Cathy’s tumultuous love story and the first African American win for Hattie McDaniel. A year worth remembering.

- Love Affair
- Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

So… Benedict Cumberbach asked me (yeah really) to tell all of my followers thank you for the gift, (which was a Porto wine bottle) and he also said ‘Tell them to download The Fifth Estate on iTunes’.
The man knows how to promote stuff.
So you know what to do. Oh and if you are a follower I did tell him hello from all of you and you can reblog or like this post for a chance to win the above signed label :)
Just some notes: giveaway closes on 28/02/14, this is supposed to be for followers, but you don’t have to follow to be a fan of Benedict so there is no need to be following me to have a chance to win, I’ll notify the winner via ask box, if I don’t get a reply within a reasonable amount of time, I’ll chose someone else, I’ll mail it anywhere…
This was supposed to end today, but there are so many notes I think it’s only fair to add some goodies. So:
1st: the label
2nd: Cabin Pressure Series 3 CDs
3rd: STID blu-ray (UK)
4th: The Times Magazine - Moran interview
5th: Shortlist Magazine - Khan cover
I’ll give you until 8/03/14 to reblog/like.
Large quantities of Sherlock, Parks & Recreation, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Martin Freeman, Adam Scott, Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, podcast randomness, and much more will be found here. The level of appreciation is up to you.
