Benedict Cumberbatch nominated for Golden Globe awards

Benedict Cumberbatch BBC Sherlock nominated for Golden Globes

The nominees for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards have been announced and Benedict Cumberbatch has been nominated for best actor in a mini-series or motion picture made for television.

I am not a big fan of the way Irene Adler and Moriarty are portrayed in the BBC series. The show's depiction of Sherlock Holmes as a "high-functioning sociopath" is also markedly different from the Canonical version.

Benedict was pretty consistent in his performance and it was surprising when he did not receive a BAFTA for either of the seasons.

Here's wishing that Benedict wins the award. He deserves it!

  1. He sure does deserve it - an excellent and fresh take on Sherlock Holmes that,I do feel, echoes many aspects of the original creation.

    1. Agree with you, Gary. Benedict's version is a very refreshing take on the legend and is a great companion piece to the more traditional ones.

  2. I agree he should win it, I'm a fan of the series but I have not read many of original stories though. I did not like Adler in the show either.


    1. Moffat wrote that particular episode and is at least partially responsible for the atrocious characterization of Adler.

      The saving grace was Benedict, who was as good in his role as ever!

  3. "I am not a big fan of the way Irene Adler and Moriarty are portrayed in the BBC series."

    i agree with you on this, and i much prefer the episodes that don't contain these 2 characters.

    "Here's wishing that Benedict wins the award."

    i'm rooting for him! i enjoy this series and look forward to more seasons.

    1. I agree with you Divers. Except for A Scandal in Belgravia and The Reichenbach Fall, I love the rest of the series.

      I too am looking forward to the next season. Moffat and Gatiss have given a teaser by revealing the three words "rat, wedding, bow". Rat could be a reference to The Boscombe Valley Mystery or the untold story of the Giant Rat of Sumatra. Wedding could mean either The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor or the wedding of John Watson (perhaps with Mary Morstan). Bow most probably refers to the collection of 7 stories or that one particular story His Last Bow.

      In the meantime, we can root for Benedict to win :)


  4. Yay! I am rooting for him! I was so dissapointed he lost at The BAFTAS, and at The Emmys...

    1. Let us hope he has a better luck at the Golden Globes :)
