Benedict Cumberbatch is a man of many talents, the foremost of which — barely eclipsing acting — is being a class act. Look no further than his Ice Bucket Challenge for definitive proof.

Well, he outdid himself at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night (September 2), when he accepted the prize for Actor of the Year a little tipsy.

Cumberbatch rambles a bit, mentions “Downton Abbey” and explains himself in one fell swoop of class. He’s the best.
