He really does deserve it. His acting in Series 3 was something I’ve never seen before, honestly, through all ive seen of his work. Sure, its difficult to play Sherlock, a self-titled “high functioning sociopath,” but it must be even that much more of a challenge to play Sherlock expressing emotion. In this series, we saw Sherlock express emotion we’d never think to see: sadness, fear, heartbreak, physical trauma, death, suffering, being drunk… The list really does go on.
Benedict Cumberbatch was extraordinary. I mean, he always is! But the man deserves every award ever. A BAFTA is just one of many we wish the man to get. But this series just blew me away. Every expression and emotion and like was portrayed in a way I’ve never seen, and no other actor could do what Benedict had just done.
Definitely give this man a fucking BAFTA. Give him everything because he deserves it all.
so fucking true.
