The Brit(ish) List

Dear all, please forgive the tardiness once again. There were tech difficulties and obligations, none of which you need to know about. Let's just say a dog ate my post and be done with it.

So, catching up, Mr Hardy and Mr Fassbender seem to be trying to out beard each other. So, what do we think of the beards? Personally, I think the red carpet is starting to look like the annual meeting of a Nineteenth Century explorers club, and I don't mind it, it's just...different. Comments welcome.

In other news, some previews of Mr Miller as Sherlock (the New York Times has a slideshow of the one true Sherlock, before you all go off spluttering), Mr McGregor reports for Unicef, Mr McKidd makes some music (at some point I will shift off my Trainspotting boys, I promise), Mr Garfield has a well deserved Tony nomination and, oh yes, the latest Bond trailer was released (lifelong Bond fangirl here, so brace yourselves for the next few months - grin). And, so, a fortnight's worth of news, collected and curated for your browsing pleasure:

PS. Minor admin note: I notice that the Archibald Prize regulations state that: 'To enter the Archibald Prize, the artist must be an Australian resident (for at least 12 months prior to the closing date)', so how about we consider that one year residency thing for this list, and I can stop answering posts about why Michael Fassbender is on the list (because he's hot, that's why). Thanks.
