Good on you Mr. Scott

Congratulations to the wonderful Andrew Scott for winning a BAFTA award for Best Supporting Actor tonight for his mindbogglingly good performance as Jim Moriarty on the BBC tv show "Sherlock"! (Wow, long sentence. Sorry.)
To impress you further I can inform you that he beat both Stephen Rea (!) and his "Sherlock" co-actor Martin Freeman to the award.

I've been trying to figure out where this picture is from but have failed quite miserably. On the other hand it's very appropriate for tonight. He's so handsome I could die. It's strange how some people get you gasping for air just by looking at their picture, don't you think?
If you haven't already I think you should take a look at Sherlock. It's a great modern take on Sherlock Holmes and everyone involved is so good it's almost ridiculous. This includes Andrew Scott, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman but also Mark Gatiss (he and I both tweeted about Eurovision last night, he's brilliant). Gatiss also wrote the script for Sherlock together with Steven Moffat (they're more known as Mofftiss on Tumblr). Moffat is also wellknown for writing some of those emotionally damaging episodes of the revival of Doctor Who.
As of now, there are two seasons of Sherlock (season three to enter production in January 2013) with three episodes in each. Every episode is about 80 minutes long which makes them more like movies than anything else.

Also watch the tv show My Life In Film in which Andrew Scott is just hilarious. He's also a part of the show Blackout with Christopher Eccleston (9th Doctor). Personally, I didn't find the show itself very thrilling but Scott's performance was breathtaking. This man can play anything.

    Sett Coupling? Helt fantastisk serie av Steven Moffat :-)

    1. Underbar serie! Sådär galet rolig vid sina tillfällen, alltså minst 1 gång/avsnitt.
