Benedict Cumberbatch was having a totes hilar time at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

He’s got a lot to celebrate after announcing his engagement to fiancée Sophie Hunter in November and then revealing they’re expecting their first child last week.

And the actor took his life LOLZ with him to big awards bash this weekend where they exploded out in the form of a photobomb.

More news about the Golden Globes 2015? Sure!

    The star pulled a funny face, threw his hands in the air and jumped up behind Margaret Cho and Meryl Streep as they took part in a sketch.

    Margaret was playing a reporter from fictitious North Korean magazine Wow who was more interested in getting a picture with actress Meryl than spreading the propaganda of the country.

    And then in jumps Mr Cumberbatch in a bid to make everyone laugh so much their actual faces fell off, although it is unconfirmed if any did actually come loose.

    Benedict is no stranger to the photobomb – at the Oscars last year he invaded a red carpet picture of U2 pulling pretty much exactly the same pose as he did last night.

    The picture went viral on Twitter with fans calling it the “#Cumberbomb”.

    Maybe this is going to become a yearly tradition!
