LOLOL! This just may be the best thing Jimmy Kimmel has ever done!
Benedict Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar just last week and the Jimmy Kimmel Live host wanted to see whether being named anything other than his own name changed anything…
And it totally didn't. Like, AT ALL.

Whether he's introducing himself as a Marvel character, George Costanza, Chad, or basically any other name he tried out, he's still JUST as captivating!
It's pretty impressive if we do say so ourselves! Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious bit (below)!!!

It's just too bad it's not an underwater giant dragon or something, but rather an unassuming sea slug that kinda looks like her blonde hair!
The new species was found near Northeast Brazil, and has landed the name Tritonia Khaleesi, after Daenerys Targayen from HBO's Game of Thrones, played by the gorgeous Emilia Clarke!
The creature apparently only measures up to about 12 mm in length and has seven pairs of tiny branchial plumes — the same white/blonde of the Khaleesi's hair!
What's even funnier is the specific category this sea slug falls into, called the 'nudibranch', because of how often the Khaleesi and other characters are

This girl is on fire! Literally, she cannot stop getting nominated and winning awards!
Yet another notch in her
bow awards domination, Jennifer Lawrence was crowned the Entertainer of the Year by the Associated Press in their annual survey of its newspaper and broadcast members and subscribers!
70 ballots were cast out, and JLaw was crowned the Victor with 15 votes!
In a competition that what was probably similar to a bloodless version of the Hunger Games, she beat Miley Cyrus by just one vote! Wow, what is this? The 2000 Presidential election?!
We hope this doesn't wre-e-eck Miley's day, and so close to Christmas!
In third was Netflix with 13 votes for being a
dream stream come true for anyone who loves AH-Mazing television!

Ryan Lochte is an enigma.
He's done one of the most prestigious things that a human being can do — he has won an Olympic gold medal. No joke, there are people that dream of representing our country in such a fab way!
But then literally everything else he's ever done is like the opposite of winning Olympic gold. He has a reality show on the way, collects "grills," and misses the point of iconic album covers. Now, we can add to that list: a hotdog is being named after him!

No, we don't mean that Venus Williams actually poured her own drink instead of a butler doing it for her or something.
Venus got a Grey Goose drink named after her!

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is Australia's national science agency, and one of their taxonomists (bug people) has named a rare type of horse fly after Beyonce.
That's… nice. We think.
The fly has a large, golden rear end and so Beyonce immediately sprung to the researcher's mind.
"It was the unique dense golden hairs on the fly’s abdomen that led me to name this fly in honour of the performer Beyonce as well as giving me the chance to demonstrate the fun side of taxonomy – the naming of species."
Sounds like so much fun! Maybe we should change careers.
Beyonce hasn't respond to the "honor" yet.
We wonder how she'll feel…
Flattered and slightly grossed out would seem an appropriate response.

His wife explains:
