Since cellphones became a part and parcel of everyone's lives, no red carpet event is complete without a selfie and photobomb.

On Sunday night, during the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, actor Benedict Cumberbatch stole the show with his jumpy photobomb at Beverley Hilton Hotel. 

While Michael Keaton was taking a snap of Meryl Streep and Margaret Cho, Sherlock Holmes jumped into the frame. The photo has since gone viral. 

Following the photobomb, hastag #Cumberbomb was the most trending topic of Twitter.


It's not an awards party until the Benedict Cumberbatch photo bomb aka #Cumberbomb ❤️

The fact that #BenedictCumberbatch photobombs any Hollywood photo he can is one of the reasons why he's my favorite person #Cumberbomb]

The true winner of tonight's Golden Globes. The #cumberbomb


I'm guessing @NathanFillion isn't at the #GoldenGIobes or he'd be giving #cumberbomb a run for his money in photobombing

I'm starting to understand the love for Cumberbatch. Another #Cumberbomb. Classic.

Uh Benedict Cunberbatch seems to be the best thing about #GoldenGlobes so far. Who else wants #Cumberbomb to totally trend?

How long till #Cumberbomb is trending? #GoldenGlobes

Adam Shankman

I fear that #cumberbomb is now a "thing". #goldenglobes

Cumberbatch was earlier also famous for his photobomb jump behind U2 with a goofy expression at the 86th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California. That photo too went viral with many sharing it on social networking sites, calling it the best Oscar red carpet moment.
