When we realized that Benedict Cumberbatch didn't attend the 2014 Golden Globes, we were a bit worried: Was our beloved "Sherlock" star sick? Did he have other commitments?

After all, the Brit appeared in two nominated films ("August: Osage County" and "12 Years A Slave") that practically guaranteed his attendance. So, thank God for after-parties.

The 37-year-old skipped the award show and went straight to the Fox And FX's 2014 Golden Globe Awards Party on Sunday, looking fantastic as usual in a classic black-and-white suit.

After having a drink (or two), TV's most stylish detective got on the dance floor with "12 Years A Slave" co-star Michael Fassbender, and they proceeded to engage in one of the coolest dance-offs of the year so far.

We're going to be itching for more candid pics of the Batch!
