And if the movie is half as good as this trailer, then Benedict Cumberbatch is definitely a shoo-in.
Benedict stars in The Imitation Game as real life figure Alan Turing, a mathematician known as the Father of Theoretical Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. The film follows Turing as he helps crack the German’s Enigma code during World War II, a fact that ultimately helped lead to an allied victory.
It historical and awesome and Benedict is really acting his ass off.
Keira Knightley and Matthew Goode make some good showings as well, so if the movie does end up getting nominations, I wouldn’t be surprised if their names are in there as well. But let’s be honest here, this is really Benedict’s movie. Check out the first trailer above and tell us what you think in the comments below! Will Mr. Cumberbatch be seeing gold?!?!
