George Blagden - #ALSIceBucketChallenge

This is the most embarrassingly, delightfully awkward and adorkable thing I’ve seen since the pancake video. Even if he did cheat.

(Also: BLESS YOU, Alex!)

pencil thin mustache, oh how I love thee. :) Also, he seems to be getting quite fit doesn’t he? Mmmm yeah. LOL

the worst thing about being shy and introverted is that you most of the time come off as cold and arrogant like you think you’re better than everyone else and thats why you don’t talk to people or hang out with them but it’s really the opposite its like you’re so uncomfortable with yourself that you don’t wanna share it with anyone else so you just dont and people think you’re an asshole but you’re actually just really scared

Very true words

'Sherlock' Shocks Emmys with Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman Wins

Anonymous asked: Aaaah Sherlock is Emmy-award-winning and it is making me grin like an idiot. But also I find it odd that by their definition Martin is a supporting actor?

I’m not really sure how that works. Where’s MadLori?

*vroom*  HELLO FRIENDS I AM HERE.

The choice of categories that actors are submitted in is not the Academy’s call.  It’s up to the producers to submit actors for consideration, and they choose what category they’ll be submitted in.  They wouldn’t WANT Ben and Martin to be nominated for the same category for the same show, because then only one of them can win - or, more likely, they’ll split the vote and neither will win.  This way both can win, as they did tonight, and give the show more overall awards.

The Emmys don’t define who’s supporting vs. lead - the submitting studios/producers decide.  Agents are sometimes involved.  It can get pretty arbitrary - Jake Gyllenhaal was somehow a supporting actor for Brokeback Mountain even though he actually had more lines than Heath did.

<snerk> I totally see MadLori in a cape flying in to ‘save the day’ with her info. “I am here, never fear. I have the info you need to hear. :)”
The only thing I would add is it does say ‘Sherlock’ on the tin after all. Although, I would be perfectly okay if it said Sherlock & Watson, or Sherlock and John.

and the Emmy goes to:

SHERLOCK “His Last Vow” / Steven Moffat - Writing - miniseries/movie

He looked a bit stunned to hear his name called. :)

Well there is always Landon Liboiron if they wanted to do the old switcharoo. :) Just a thought. I&#8217;d hate to lose Athelstan.

A Photographic Tour of Sherlock’s London

For a deeper view into London’s most popular landmarks and buildings, check out the #londonsights hashtag on Instagram. To follow “Sherlock” at the 2014 Emmys, browse the #Emmys hashtag.

To fans of the novels and the BBC series, the locations featured in the Sherlock Holmes stories are almost as iconic as the characters themselves.

The most famous of all is 221B Baker Street, the home of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Although London’s official Holmes museum now bears that number, the address was completely fictional when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published the first “Sherlock” novel in 1887—building numbers on Baker Street did not yet extend that high. The flat shown on the British television show is actually located on the much-quieter North Gower Street, near Euston station.

Next door to Sherlock’s imaginary home is Speedy’s Cafe, a frequent filming spot for actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson). Speedy’s is a real restaurant and a destination site for super-fans—they even have a Sherlock-themed wrap on the menu. Another notable filming location for the television series is St. Bart’s Hospital in Smithfield, the oldest hospital in Europe and backdrop for Sherlock’s final showdown with arch-nemesis Moriarty.
