Idris Elba wins the Golden Globes with his selfie with Daniel Craig

Idris Elba looked amazing at the Golden Globes. He wore a dark green Ozwald Boateng tuxedo with a circular pattern and coordinating green suede shoes. Idris was there to promote CATS with Taylor Swift (that is still such a weird thing to write). He is also the reigning Sexiest Man Alive and the Globes are perfectly on brand. Idris has long been rumored for the role of James Bond. As a Bondophile, I can understand why there is a discussion on his age but I don’t care. Unfortunately, nobody asked for my opinion on the matter. Idris knows we are obsessed with this conversation and he’s having a lot of fun with it (further proof he’d make a good Bond, btw). And like any good Bond would, when he saw an opportunity, he took it. During the ceremony Idris ran into current Bond, Daniel Craig, and immortalized the moment:

Let me join in the chorus of those saying: HA! This makes me smile so wide. And I’ll bet it took all of 45 seconds to make this happen: “Eh, Daniel – c’mere for a ‘I’m coming for your role’ shot.” “You bet.”

And Daniel isn’t the only Bond Contender Idris had his mark trained on, he couldn’t get enough of fellow Bond rumor-miller, Richard Madden:

However, keeping an eye on the competition wasn’t Idris’ only job at the Globes. The role he seemed to most relish was proud dad to the Golden Globes Ambassador, Isan Elba:

And proud he should be. As ambassador, Isan has made mental illness her cause in honor of her mother, Kim Norgaard, who suffers from bipolar depression and chronic anxiety. HFPA donated $50,000 in Isan’s name to the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, which was created by Taraji P. Henson.

    Idris WAS the reason to watch the Globes.

    Idris has a great sense of humor. I don’t think he’s in consideration for Bond because of his age. Idris not much younger than Daniel Craig and he’s probably doing one last movie.

      No…unfortunately…that’s not the reason….

      • minime says:

        probably not and that’s a pity 🙁 He would be amazing in that role! He’s such a charismatic actor…would be for sure a reason for me to watch Bond movies again since Timothy Dalton.

      Did anybody worry about Sean Connery’s age?!

    I know I am in a minority here, but Idris does nothing to me (yet he is much more deserving of the sexy title that wooden Blake Shelton). However, this is great. Idris managed to lure the fun Daniel out, he usually seems to uptight. And Ted Sarandos staring at them lovingly in the background is the best part of it.

    • ZGB says:

      He doesn’t do anything for me too but I enjoy the reaction he has on people. It’s a case of, ‘don’t get it, but don’t hate it’…

    I think he’s #1 on anyone’s party invite list for lots of reasons.

    I had no idea about that charity. Thank you very much for discussing that.

    His daughter is so pretty, those genes! Mental illness impacts so many lives, it’s a great cause and there will never be enough research imo. I saw that pic of him and Mr Craig and got a good little giggle. Idris will for ever be my husband, despite my real one who looks nothing like him with the exception of height.

    Idris Elba and Richard Madden were in a movie together, Bastille Day. Not everything revolves around Bond.

  9. hot says:

    Eh.. I don’t get the admiration for Idris Elba.. Both are too old to be James Bond..

  10. KidV says:

    I can’t get enough of this man.

  11. BC says:

    I love him. I wish someone would hug me the way hes hugging Richard. So warm and whole.
