After Eddie Redmayne took the SAG award over the weekend, the Best Actor Oscar race is solidly Redmayne vs. Keaton, with Redmayne gaining an edge. That hasn’t stopped Benedict Cumberbatch from campaigning his ass off, but he probably just tanked whatever chance he had at an upset by making a really unfortunate, very troubling comment about the challenges faced by “colored” actors in the UK. Full Story

You gotta give them something… But it’s perfect, isn’t it? The two hardest hustlers this award season, you could say the two most Try nominees on the circuit, were paired together for the first award of the night. As a programming strategy, it's understandable. Opening the show with Jennifer Aniston hooks the MiniVan Majority. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch and fiancée Sophie Hunter were in Palm Springs this weekend campaigning for The Imitation Game. They were also photographed at LAX on Sunday. People are saying she’s pregnant. Because her dress isn’t tight and she’s holding her clutch at the waist. Is that all it takes? Because if so I’ve been pregnant for years, continuously. Full Story

The New York Times released a series of videos yesterday all themed around kissing starring actors who delivered some of the finest performances of the year. There are 9 of them. And my favourite… Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Miles Teller. Because I love her. Because look at her face, don’t you want to kiss her? It’s because of Belle. Full Story

After a long, rumor-filled casting process—easily a top-three roughest go round— Marvel has finally announced their Dr. Strange and it is, for real, Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s been rumored for years—I first mentioned it in 2012—but the timing never worked out, and Marvel would go look at other options, coming closest with Joaquin Phoenix a few months ago. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch and fiancée Sophie Hunter (in Erdem) attended the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards together last night. Of course he’d be there. Because even though he’s been hustling his balls off for an Oscar, that voice was meant for the stage, don’t you know? And he’s to be Hamlet soon. Full Story

Yesterday in Smutty Tingles, I wrote that “I have Benedict Cumberbatch love and engagement fatigue, GOD." Every day there’s another quote about how much he loves his fiancée and how much she loves him and why they decided to list their engagement and why she walked the carpet with him at the premiere. Full Story

The Imitation Game opens in theaters next weekend, and in advance of that Cumberbatch is in the US doing some promotion. On Friday that meant showing up at the Hollywood Film Awards and pretending like that’s a real thing (click here for more on that) and this morning it was an interview on Good Morning America. Full Story

The race for Best Actor will be between Michael Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Eddie Redmayne this year. All three were at the Hollywood Film Awards. All three received awards at the Hollywood Film Awards. Jesus, is this show business or is this grade school? As we’ve seen, Keaton had the early lead in this category since Venice. Full Story

There’s something about good actors also being good mimics. There’s some connection between being good at one and also being good at the other. It makes a certain kind of sense, especially given accent work and how being able to mimic would make mastering an accent easier. So when you tell me that Benedict Cumberbatch is good at impressions, it’s like—well of course he is, he’s a super good actor. Full Story

Every week or so, I get an email from a particular subset of Twi-Hard. I call them the deniers. These are the ones who refuse to believe that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are no longer together. And that not only are they not broken up, but that she secretly had a baby last year and everything we’re seeing now is an attempt to hide the child. Full Story
