Watch your back, Oscar nominees: Benedict Cumberbatch is ready to photobomb.

The "Sherlock" star couldn't help but crash U2's group photo on the red carpet Sunday.

Bono and the band were on-hand to perform their Oscar nominated song "Ordinary Love" from the movie "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom." Cumberbatch, on the other hand, was invited thanks to his role in "12 Years A Slave," which is nominated for Best Picture amongst other awards.

And Benedict wasn't done with U2! The actor later crashed Ellen DeGeneres' photo with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

We know Best Photobomber of the Night isn't an official award at Hollywood's most prestigious awards show. But considering his jumping abilities, facial expressions, and quick reactions, Benedict easily deserves a statue for his performance tonight!
