    A new series of threads I’m starting: when has a never-nominationed actor/director/etc deserved an Oscar nomination?

    Alan Rickman has never been nominated for an Oscar, but won a BAFTA Award for supporting actor in 1991 for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. He was nominated in the same category again in 1995 and 1996 for Sense and Sensibility and Michael Collins, respectively, and received a BAFTA nomination as a lead actor in 1991 for Truly, Madly, Deeply. He received a slew of critics recognition for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

    His work in Die Hard is true breakthrough work. Forget the bias you’d have against it being in an action movie for a second. He is just sublime as Grueber, crafting a memorable and dynamic character that serves as the perfect foil to Bruce Willis. I would have loved to see him get a Supporting nom that year. Juxtaposing him with Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda would have made that one of the more colorful categories in Academy history.

    The final Harry Potter definitly. Especially since that was such a weak year for Supporting Actors I mean Max Von Sydow for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close?! Jonah Hill for Moneyball?! His and Ralph should have been nominated. I also thought he was great in Sense and Sensibility and Sweeney Todd

    My favourite performance of his was actually in the movie Bottle Shock. Not saying he necessarily deserved an oscar, but he was terrific, and it was a weak year in the category.

    What a fun idea!

    I actually thought his brief but memorable performance in Dogma (1999) was awards worthy.
