It was the National Television Awards last night and guess who won Best Detective? Benedict Cumberbatch!
Up against Idris Elba and Olivia Coleman (others as well but i forget who) it was unsurprising really. I mean, let’s face it, it would have been a scandal if Coleman had won. Not because I have anything against her- I love her as an actress- it’s just…well…her character was the worst detective ever! She didn’t even realise her husband was the killer!
Anyways, back on point.
For his incredible performance as Sherlock, he won the award-presented by Kiefer Sutherland (subtle hints of 24 promotion)-and unfortunately couldn’t be there to accept it.
However, he appeared over video link (cue self induced swooning) in a prim tuxedo and gorgeous, gracious smile. And, if that wasn’t enough, then Benedict floated like an angel about a foot off the floor to reveal a very fitting (and welcome) pair of swimming trunks. In all honesty, other things were also slightly revealed, or at least highlighted.
Accepting the award…
Ooh, there are the trunks ladies!
“Christ” (the only profanity capable of leaving his lips) “Sorry, the pool’s just too lovely, I’ve been swimming in it every day.” Well, if that’s the story you’re going with. 😉
