Via slodwick on LJ:
Basically, the idea is this: A bunch of fans from around the world all send postcards to Martin Freeman to arrive at roughly the same time, with the same message, as a way of expressing how impressed we are with him and his acting and his face.
Yes, this is absolutely silly and unnecessary (descriptors which are the building blocks of fandom, IMO), but it’s also just for fun. This is in no way meant to dismiss or detract from all the other amazing and talented people who work on Sherlock, both in front of and behind the camera. I am just… really digging on Martin Freeman’s faaaaaace acting skills right now.
This project is… on the internet, you guys. Anyone who enjoys Martin’s work (specifically on Sherlock) is invited to play!
Your postcard(s) can be of anything you like, though please use common sense (i.e. no graphic sexual imagery, etc).
If you’d like to find a postcard that’s representative of your state/region/country, or even make your own homemade postcard, that’d be nifty.
And you know, if you want to send multiple postcards, that’s cool, too!
For the message, you should write or type the following:
Dear Mr. Freeman,
ALL THE BAFTAS, SIR.
ALL OF THEM.
Very sincerely yours,
[insert name here]
The wording in this case is a play on Martin’s EPIC quote during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show: “Fuck you, I won a BAFTA.”
And the “very sincerely yours” bit is a callback to Sherlock Holmes canon. &tears;

I wish I had known about this earlier! I was just out, I could’ve bought a postcard.
Just casually bringin’ this back. This is the week to send off your postcards, so ACT NOW BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
