The 'Batch is back!
Benedict Cumberbatch, once the Internet's boyfriend and now an Oscar-nominated global sensation, has returned to the role that initially broke his career – the charming, asexual, modern day Sherlock Holmes.
In between attending awards shows in Hollywood for his role in The Imitation Game, the newly engaged actor has been seen filming in London with costar Martin Freeman for a one-off Sherlock special set to air later this year.

Thursday's Oscar nominations consisted almost exclusively of familiar faces from the film world. Before several of these actors broke out on the big screen, though, they found their way into the spotlight on television.
Among these class acts is a comic actress–turned–serious dramatist who's actually a reality veteran, a sharp-tongued supporting actor whose first recurring gig was on an NSFW HBO series and a threepeat nominee who learned his craft from asking other Oscar go-to guys for their advice – over and over again.

Call him the "Cumberbomber."
While Benedict Cumberbatch's fans have their own moniker, the elegant yet hunky English actor's record for the televised photobombing stands as reason to reconsider his own nickname.
"You're like an awards show professional … you're photobombing everybody in sight now," Ellen DeGeneres teased The Imitation Game star and expectant dad, 38, when he made his first appearance on her show Wednesday.
