“I was in a car going home from East London where we’re doing some filming for a show about Brexit, and my phone just blew,” Cumberbatch revealed. “I thought, ‘Whoa, what’s going on here, is there a malfunction?’ But then I saw, ‘Congratulations, huge love,’ and what not, and that’s how I found out. It was quite lovely.”

The actor also reacted to the news that he is now tied with Laurence Olivier for the second most ever nominations in the limited series category.

“It’s amazing. I don’t know what to say about that really. That’s something to put on your gravestone,” Cumberbatch joked. “I don’t know — yeah, I’m speechless. That’s my very English reaction to that. Maybe I should try other categories? Art direction?”
