Benedict Cumberbatch touched by Lupita’s acceptance speech
I’ve seen pictures of this moment go down my dash a few times now and so far every single one has mentioned only Cumberbatch’s reaction.
Look at Angelina—she’s tearing up too. Look at fucking Chiwetel. That bottom left gif. The tension in his mouth, the half blink—he’s barely holding it in. His reaction is every bit as important. (Or more, let’s be real. Let’s think about how this moment might be just a touch more personally significant to him.)
The singular focus on the beloved white dude who’s barely in focus is really effing telling.
