Benedict Cumberbatch: The Imitation Game's Oscar Buzz Is "Nerve-Racking"
Our Becca caught up with the actor to talk about his latest Academy Award-tipped role and Sherlock…
Speaking exclusively to MTV News, Benedict, who stars alongside Keira Knightley as Enigma Code scientist, Alan Turing, said he was pleased with talk of an Oscar nod as it means the film will attract more viewers:
“All I’m really happy about the buzz is that it means hopefully people will come and see the film and Alan’s story will be told and his legacy will be known to a broader audience.”
When asked if he knew how he would feel if the film did win an accolade, the British screen star jokingly replied: "Absolutely not."
The actor is also keeping quiet about the upcoming series of TV drama, Sherlock, when asked what fans could expect from the latest installment.
His co-star, Andrew Scott also gave little away but praised the 38-year-old: "I love him, he's a great pal of mine and he's a delight to work with."
The Imitation Game is out November 14.
