  1. It’s a curious choice of words to call Cumberbatch a “guest actor,” as that’s TV terminology. In a film, what makes one actor more of a guest than any other?

  2. The actor who actually earned the nomination should get their photo posted here – not JJ and Pine.

  3. It’s a shame that any awards the Imitation Game may receive will be because of some message about homosexuality rather than it being a legitimately excellent film.

  4. Agreed. He’s a good actor but you must admit his Khan was a pale “imitation” of the original.

  5. I felt like keeping the suspense ’til people clicked on the article. It was a deliberate choice.

  6. who cares? nu-trek sucks. C-batch should be highly embarrassed to be associated with that POS.
    …keep beating that dead horse, bonzer! maybe nu-trek 3 will ACTUALLY go into production! LOL!

  7. Coy headlines should just be regarded as clickbait.
