Cumberbatch & the hot dudes of the pre-Globe parties: who would you rather?

CUMBERBATCH. The other day I was complaining about the lack of any hot dudes this awards season. It’s not that I don’t find Hugh Jackman hot, or I’m not completely enchanted by Eddie Redmaye – I love both of them! It’s just that I miss having one big crush to get me through the awards season, like Michael Fassbender got me through last year’s awards. But I forgot about Cumby… he won’t be at the Oscars (??) unless we get really lucky, but we can enjoy him for Golden Globes weekend, right? These are pics of Cumby at the BAFTA event last night. He looks dashing and HOT. And can we please not have 30 comments about “Who is he? He’s not attractive.” He is Sherlock and he is FINE. Also: look at Cumby’s shoes! He has huge boat-feet. You know what that means (foot sex). PS… the girl is Lara Pulver, also known as Irene Adler. Are they dating? Or just posing together?

More pics of various hot dudes at the pre-Globes event this weekend… Simon Baker at the G’Day USA Black Tie Gala.

Eddie Redmayne at the BAFTA event – he’s such a snazzy dresser! I love him.

Ryan Kwanten at the G’Day USA Black Tie Gala. Is he wearing a leather tuxedo?

Did anyone ask for some Aussie beefcake? God, Hugh Jackman looks GREAT! He’s totally going to win tonight. Yay!

    Wow Hugh gets better with age!!

  2. normades says:

    Eddie has amazing style, I can’t wait to see what he wears next.

  3. MrsBPitt says:

    Love, love, love Hugh!!!!!! He’s got it all, baby!!!

  4. Rll says:

    She’ll latch on to anything for attention

  5. j.eyre says:

    I think my heart stopped…

    I have to pick one? Based on these photos, Hugh. But I will take anyone’s sloppy seconds in this round.

    I love that The Batch paired his tailored suit and dynamite tie (!) with dress slip-ons and red striped socks.

    Really, all – just *sigh*

      Although I really can’t get on board with the monstrosities on Cumby’s feet. He looks like he’s wearing elf funeral slippers.

      • Incredulous says:

        Eh, his feet are like the rest of him – lanky and narrow.

        Try getting footwear when you have broad feet – it is a somewhat literal pain as you have to break the stupid things in.

        Also, ATTENTION PEOPLE WHO WORK IN SHOE SHOPS! I am in my 30′s, I know what size shoe I take, stop bringing me the size down from that because you find it incomprehensible that I would have large, broad feet for my height. Seriously, that is really annoying and dismissive.

    • V4Real says:

      How many times do I have to say this? As many time as necessary Hugh can you freakin Jackme is the one I want. Followed closely by Baker and Redmayne.

      Now let’s get to the men of the Golden Globes itself b/c there was definetely a lot of f_ckable men there last night.

  6. Amelia says:

    I’ll have Simon Baker for a starter, Cumberbatch for the main and a little bit of Eddie Redmayne for dessert, please :)

  7. lisa2 says:

    Hugh looks the best. None of the other men are bringing any HOT at all. I don’t get all the swooning over most of them. That Cumberbatch guy is not good looking in the face. If this guy was not an actor I really doubt anyone would take much notice of him walking down the street. But hey people need someone to elevate to heartthrob status.

    Other then Hugh I like that Eddie dude.

  8. T.Fanty says:

    Always Cumby. Even though he looks a little bit like a bank manager here. And, judging by the socks, a bank manager whose desk totes the sign “you don’t have to be mad to work here, but it helps.”

  10. truthful says:

    I love Eddie’s acting, that’s all I got.

    oh, got into a huge shouting match w/my bestie about Cumberpatch…

    uh, she loves him and was inviting me to watch a Sherlock marathon over her house and I declined. We argued because I do not agree that he is the sexist man on earth.

    we’ve made up now. She threatened to withhold my xmas present, she was very serious…LOL

  11. lucy2 says:

    Hugh and Simon look good!
    What happened to Jason’s hair? Looks strange.

    Eddie reminds me of a cross between Seth Myers and Dennis from it’s Always Sunny, and I can’t get past that.

  12. MissMary says:

    Love me some Cumberbatch…

    I don’t see the Eddie Redmayne sexiness so many do, though. I try but I just can’t.

  13. LadyBird83 says:

    Ok. I finally watched “Sherlock” and despite the fact that Benedict looks like an alien he is enigmatic.

  14. Toni says:

    They are obviously a couple. Why on earth would she be in Los Angeles during awards weekend, she is not nominated for anything and she is not famous so she would’nt be invited. He had to have brought her. This is probably their “coming out” together as a couple weekend.

  15. Ms Kay says:

    LOL at them red striped socks and slipper shoes, Cumberbatch is all ready to get into his bathrobe later with a glass of scotch before going to bed.

    Anyhoo, in an alternate universe I’d pick Jason Stackhouse and strip him off that leather suit only to spank the hell out of him with it! Oh dear, where am I going… #Shameless#

    Simon Baker is cute with those glasses! My cousin had a huge crush on him whilst he was on that Oz TV show Heartbreak High.. Anyone watched it? Drazic, Anita, Nick… Loved that show!

  16. Lilo says:

    What’s up with Cumberbatch’s socks??

  17. V4Real says:

    I”ll take that sexy Aussie Hugh and some of that young Eddie Redmayne and then some Simon. Damn! all this international love and ass.

  18. booboocita says:

    Granted, there are men more handsome than Cumberbatch. But do they have his voice, that marvelous, thrumming, resonant instrument? The voice that sounds like hot caramel on ice cream, Kahlua with a bit of cream, flowing lava? The voice that haunts my dreams? (That voice used to belong to Alan Rickman, and occasionally makes an appearance, but Rickman is getting on in years, and Cumberbatch, well …)

    Admit it. The looks are fine — I love his eyes — but it’s the voice, and the sharp intelligence, and the wit, that seduce a Celebitch and make her a Cumber-bitch. Or a Cumber-lassie. Or, in my case, a total Cumber-minx.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      @ Booboocita

      Wow—-your description of CumberCrumpet’s voice made my mouth water. It’s quiver-some, & no that’s not a real word. I’m just nominating it for a new word in a discussion of Cumby’s luscious voice.

      I just heard another clip of his Alan Rickman impression & it was absolute perfection, with a side of velvet.


  19. PJ says:

    No, Ben and Lara are not dating, she is just leeching from his good moment.

  20. Cindy says:

    Benedict’s socks were given to him by some of his fans, which makes them all the cuter and him all the sweeter for wearing them to a public event. He wins, hands down.

  21. Jenna says:

    Just watched ‘Sherlock’ and he is GREAT! But no, he is not ‘FINE’. I still don’t want to tap that and I hated that version of Irene Adler. Bleh.

    Also, I don’t want any of them. Another ‘Who Would You Rather’ bust.

  22. Aurora says:

    I LOVE Cumberbatch, even though I do think he looks weird and alien-like.

    In moving images he is totally mesmerising. Photos really don’t do him justice. When he was on Have I Got News For You I just couldn’t look away. (and that voice! Gah…) Love him most when his hair is reddish. Except in Atonement, because ugh.

    His dress sense does absolutely nothing for me though. Except for the socks. Those are hilarious.

  23. bluhare says:

    Glad you said Cumberbatch AND the hot guys.

  24. Birdie says:

    Cumberbatch and Lara Pulver are NOT a couple! She has a boyfriend, I think Louise Brealey (Molly Hooper) is also in LA for the Globes.

  25. Eden says:

    I don’t get the Cumberbatch thing either. But to each his/her own.

    Hugh looks great, as usual.

  26. Katia says:

    Since Hugh has a beard, it’d be cumberbatch for me

  27. Halfmydadsage says:

    Love the socks. Matt smith wore wacky socks in a photo with cumberbatch last week. Love him.

  28. Heather says:

    They all look gay! I need to look at photos of country singers and burly men now…bring on Tom Hardy and Chris Young. Blech to all of these guys.

  29. Miss Kiki says:

    How am I only just seeing this post?! Jaguar Holmes looks marvelous as always, as do Hugh and RedCarp but I have to express my love for Ryan, after Hemsworth and Hugh he’s my next favorite Aussie, ever since he played Vinnie in Home and Away. Thanks cb for giving my biscuits a thorough workout this week.

  30. Ann says:

    Where’s the man flesh? Not enough meat on display!

  31. c'est la vie says:

    Cumberbatch and Hugh, in no particuar order.

    And the pic of Cumberbatch does make them look like they’re a couple.

    Or maybe just overly friendly. I’ll go with that.

  32. Mario says:

    Eddie Redmayne, Benedict and Simon Baker all look deformed and weird. They always look strange no matter what they are in or where they are.

  33. Suze says:

    The Cumberbatch needs to be seen in character in one of his tv shows/movies to be appreciated. Geez, just a few minutes of Sherlock had me in his love vise.

    Well, I except Atonement, because he plays a skeevy character in that.

  34. GoodCapon says:

    God I love Eddie and his suits!

    So, I’ll take Simon, Eddie and a dash of Hugh in any order. Thanks very much!

  35. Moi says:

    I really don’t think it would be possibly to love Hugh Jackman anymore than I do. Wait, that’s not true, I would love him even more if we were both single and I could get him in my bed.

  36. EscapedConvent says:

    Eddie Redmayne is quite the snappy dresser. And his Blue Steel is the only Blue Steel I can take seriously.

    He’s as cute as a bug’s ear!

  37. Amilu says:

    Nope — Snazzy dresser or not, Eddie Redmayne still looks like a serial killer to me. Y’all can have him!

  38. Emma says:

    Simon Baker is an insufferable dbag… for some reason he was in an ad for a bank in Australia but he was doing his American accent…. it was like… wtf, why?

  39. chica says:

    So I guess there were no men of color at the event? It would be nice to get some variety in this post.
