7th heaven? Benedict Cumberbatch could tie this Emmy record with a nomination for ‘Brexit’

7th heaven? Benedict Cumberbatch could tie this Emmy record with a nomination for ‘Brexit’
Benedict Cumberbatch is sitting just outside the top six in our Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor odds in seventh place, but seven could be his lucky number this year. If the Emmy winner makes it in for his HBO film “Brexit,” he’d tie Hal Holbrook‘s record of seven nominations in the category.

Cumberbatch’s potential haul might be even more impressive than that of Holbrook, who collected his bids in a 11-year span. Cumberbatch, meanwhile, has been nominated six times in the last seven years. 2015 was the only year he missed, and that’s just because he didn’t have anything that year. In other words, if Benedict Cumberbatch has a TV project in play, Benedict Cumberbatch gets an Emmy nomination.

His hot streak started in 2012 with his turn as the famed detective in “Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia,” losing to Kevin Costner in “Hatfields & McCoys.

It chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

Brexit Supporters Are Fuming After Doctor Who Poked Fun At Them

Brexit is turning into a problem worse than the Cybermen and Daleks combined, with the UK apparently about to plunge off an economic cliff and into unknown, chaotic waters. And given that Doctor Who has never been particularly shy about getting political over the years, it’s perhaps not surprising that they’d make a reference to it at some point.
