28 Times Benedict Cumberbatch Proved He's An Awesome Human In 2015

The year got Cumberbatched.

2015 has been quite a year for Benedict Cumberbatch.

1. Not only did he get married to Sophie Hunter.

3. But 2015 also became the year Benedict became a father. These were the emotions we all felt when he announced the happy news.

4. And then our hearts almost exploded when he welcomed a baby boy into the world in June.


His rep told BuzzFeed at the time: "Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son."

5. But he also ruled when he had this perfect reaction to a mean tweet about himself.

6. Even though he occasionally forgot that he was actually married.

8. At every event and awards show.

9. But particularly at the 2015 Oscars.

It's just too much.

10. And each and every time he showed what a caring husband he is.


11. Seriously.

But then they had only been married a few days at this point. *Sigh*.

12. Nothing proves how much his year rocked more than this.

13. Even at London Fashion Week he couldn't keep his hands off her.

14. But that's not all. It's the year we discovered what he looks like minus eyebrows.

In the Zoolander 2 trailer.

15. And the year he toyed with our emotions with more and more Sherlock teasers.

16. Which means 2016 is already going to be the best year yet when we finally get to see it on New Year's Day.


17. This year Benedict even received a CBE from the goddamn Queen of England.

Life goals complete.

19. The year he brought back the Cumberbomb at the Golden Globes.


20. The year he looked this damn amazing at Wimbledon.

22. And the year he killed it playing Hamlet.

No pun intended.

23. When he gave this perfect speech begging fans to stop recording him on stage.

24. And used it as an opportunity to ask the audience for donations to help the Syrian crisis.

Like so.

25. But let's not forget that this very important moment also happened.

He pretended to be an otter on The Graham Norton Show.

And it was quite simply beautiful.

27. And most definitely this one.

28. Thank you for being you, Benedict. May we see plenty more in 2016.
