I guess, in today world better not get something. All these prizes, including Noble and Oscar, went down in value so much that in a few years it will be humiliating to get one. Most people get awards today did not deserve them.
Not getting Oscar means that the doors of the most prestigious “Oscar loosers” club will be opened to Benedict. Such Grands of industry as Leo, Pitt, Depp, Ford, Cruise etc. are much better company than uncle Harvey and his cinderella Sophie. People, don’t you think so?
p.s. Certainly, I wish Ben all the luck. That super talanted workaholic deserves this fuckin award by all means and like no one else. Yes, those “else” are not bad too this year, I know, but I don’t care about them, I care about Ben.
SoGo: I know I said I wasn’t going to bring up Sherlock shipping in this blog but there is a classic of Johnlock fan fic called Performance in a Leading Role, in which Sherlock and John are both actors. Sherlock has this to say about the first time he was nominated for an Oscar (he eventually won one): “ I didn’t expect to win. First time nominee, nobody knew who I was. The nomination was a sort of welcome-to-the-club acknowledgment that I’d have a future in the business. The attitude is typically that someone in that circumstance will have other chances.”
Benedict will have plenty of other chances.
