    For me I have to go with his performance in the final Harry Potter movie. His arc was so heartbreaking and he gave it his all making a character we have grown to dislike, warm and lovable. I also thought he was excellent in Sweeney Todd, Sense and Sensibility, and Love Actually and his small part in The Butler

    I haven’t seen some of these movies so I’m not totally partial, but I agree with Kyle. Such a moving performance that encompassed a decade of work, he was able to over two hours completely change like basically the entire world’s opinion about a character who up at that point most saw as one of film’s most famous villains. Unfortunately of the supporting actor nominees that year I’ve only seen Kenneth Branagh, but I would have definitely given Rickman the nomination over him, easy.

    I have to go with the last Harry Potter. Watching him go from one of the more detested characters in the series to tragic savior was heartwrenching. He got absolutely robbed of a nomination.

    Of this list, I agree with the above that his lack of nomination for the last Potter movie was as tragic as his character’s arc. My personal choice is actually a small movie that nobody has seen or really likes besides me, called Bottle Shock. The screenplay is ok, but Rickman himself is terrific. Not outlandish or anything, no big moments of acting, but he is so subtly perfect that I wish he’d been at least nominated.

    Deathly Hallows Part 2 by far… incredible performance. It’s already a shame that they snubbed 3 or 4 of the films in major categories over the years, but when they snubbed him I was proper blazing!

    Just to make these comments sound like a broken record, but I have to go with Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Outstanding performance, and my personal Supporting Actor winner that year by a country mile!
