It's awards season (hurrah!) and an epic battle between two ELLE favourites has commenced. Both super acting talents with buckets of British charm and good-looks that break the typical Hollywood heart-throb mould, Eddie and Benny are going up against each other at the BAFTAs, Oscars and Screen Actor's Guild Awards for The Theory Of Everything and The Imitation Game respectively.
Whether the judges are cuckoo for Cumberbatch or raring for Redmayne (and frankly we’re both at the same time), remains to be seen but one thing is for sure, our boys are in the big time now.
Face: Eddie’s freckles vs Benedict’s lopsided charm = too tough to call
Body: Both enjoy a classically British ‘pale and interesting’ vibe
Personality: Benny’s charisma just has a certain je ne sais quoi, oui?
Attainability: Eddie recently got hitched and Benny’s soon to do the same so... they both lose!
It’s too tough to call! Find out who is victorious at the SAG Awards this weekend.Words by Tamsin Crimmens More
