LOS ANGELES: Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is reportedly getting tips from actor Matthew McConaughey about what to say if he wins an Academy Award for his film "The Imitation Game".
Cumberbatch is nominated in the Best Actor category for his portrayal of Alan Turing in the film. The 87th Academy Awards ceremony will be held here Sunday.
According to Daily Star newspaper, Cumberbatch has been told to remain calm and keep his cool if he wins the golden statuette, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
McConaughey won the Academy Award for Best Actor last year for "Dallas Buyers Club".
"Matthew's told him to keep cool, there's a huge mixture of happiness and nerves, and he's said Benedict should keep a level head," said a source.
"Secondly, he's told him to thank his family and wife Sophie (Hunter). And his third piece of advice was to just enjoy the moment and have one heck of a party afterwards," the source added.
