can i just… matt and benedict are actually incredible actors okay, and of course i route for them in everything they do, because they really are in my opinion some of the highest quality actors, and you really just don’t see actors like them every day. and obviously i’d be so pleased if either of them won but it’s like… i can’t help but just be so proud that all the news articles were like “matt or benedict? who will win best actor?!” and everyone thought one of them would win and it was gonna be so close, but then out of nowhere- BAM! COLIN MORGAN BITCHES! RIGHT TO THE FACE. and i really wish i could give all three of them best drama actor because they so deserve it but i mean, matt and benny are pretty well known, especially matt, and benedict is right up there, too… and colin’s really not as well known. but now producers and people are gonna see this, and they’re gonna see how talented colin is and how much he means to the fans (enough to vote for him over the incredible matt and sensational benedict) and they’re gonna be like, “i want him for my project!”
and he just deserves it so much, because he’s worked so hard and he’s still working hard. and, i know merlin didn’t win, but in a way this was kind of a win for all of them. because their lead actor got recognition, and that’s a really big deal! it proves how much people loved their show. and now colin gets to go home and put his little trophy/wand on his mantel and smile at it, and he’ll wake up tomorrow and it’ll still be there and it won’t be some little northern irish drama school boy’s crazy dream. it’ll be real. and he’ll think, “i won best drama actor. i deserve this.” and then his family and friends will all call him and scream and jump around with him and say how proud they are and you could see how proud he was of himself tonight and we helped put that smile on his face. just to know i did a tiny bit to make him look like that is incredible to me. it’s the best feeling because he really is so special and just… he has such a bright future ahead of him okay, because he’s so fucking talented. and fuck now i’m crying and idk why. i’m just really, really, extremely happy for him. and he’s just a little nugget and just… go on to do amazing things, colin. things you’re passionate about. i know you’re gonna be great because you deserve every good thing and all of the awards to come (because i just know there will be so many more okay) and this is a lot longer than i wanted it to be i just have a lot of emotions okay shut up don’t look at me i’m just really so unnecessarily proud it’s kind of ridiculous i just love him okay
and you’ll get ‘em next year, matt and benny!
