None of the Harry Potter cast was recognized by the Academy! It made me so angry! What are your thoughts?June 7, 2012 at 8:34 pm #62809
Alan Rickman as Snape, for Deathly Hallows Part 2. Without him, the film would lose much of its emotional power. Snape was easily the most complex character in the series, and the resolution of his 8 film arc was tricky. This required a skilled actor to portray him, and we got that in Rickman. Of all the actors, he comes closest to being the definitive version of his character as described in the books. There’s a reason nearly every Potter fan loves Rickman, and he should have gotten his due.June 7, 2012 at 8:51 pm #62810
Great topic, I have to say I think Harry Potter has one of the best ensembles I have ever seen. Its complete and other bull crap that nobody has been recognized in this series. They should have at least generated a SAG nomination.
But to answer yeah I definitely have to go with Alan Rickman. He by far is someone who gave one of the astonishing performances of all the series. And was definitely the emotional straint that put the last film together. I actually had more chills from his scenes alone in the flashback than in the book. Rickman is an extrordinary actor, I cannot fanthom how he has never gotten any Oscar dues. He was miles better than that mess of a lineup this year in supporting actor.
Not to mention Imelda Staunton was horribly snubbed in 2007. She definitely should’ve gotten in over that ridiculous Ruby Dee filler nomination.
Would have also loved to see nominations for Watson, Radcliffe, Gambon, and Fiennes.June 7, 2012 at 8:57 pm #62811
Imelda Staunton for Movie 5. Then I would have been with an Alan Rickman mention last year.June 7, 2012 at 9:00 pm #62812
Staunton and Rickman, though I wouldn’t say either were robbed.June 7, 2012 at 9:48 pm #62813
Well, they’re all great. Such full and rich characters.
I’ll go with Sirius Black. Oldman is incredibly good in several of the films.June 7, 2012 at 10:12 pm #62814
Staunton (Order of the Phoenix), Rickman (Deathly Hallows Pt. 2), Gambon (Half-Blood Prince), and Watson (Deathly Hallows Pt. 1). I don’t think any were necessarily robbed, but those 4 are the most Oscar-worthy IMHO.June 7, 2012 at 11:29 pm #62815
Rickman, obviously.June 7, 2012 at 11:56 pm #62816
Imelda Staunton. What a cheerfully noxious performance!June 8, 2012 at 7:01 pm #62817
I found Rickman, Staunton and Fiennes to all be Oscar worthyJune 8, 2012 at 7:57 pm #62818
I liked Kenneth Branagh. When he and Rickman work together in that duel scene in CoS they are both really good. Imelda Staunton and Alan Rickman were also good. Maggie Smith was so close to McGonagall you might think that character was based on her roles as teachers and or authority figures. Robbie Coltrane was able to get a BAFTA nomination once for the first film. He was seen as really getting that character. Too bad the first two films ruined all the subsequent movies chances for awards with the trashing they got.June 10, 2012 at 5:03 am #62819
I knew that Alan Rickman will have the most votes, but I prefer Imelda Staunton, who was the best supporting actress in 2007, hands down.June 10, 2012 at 7:37 am #62820
Imelda Staunton was great. But untill last year, none of them really deserved it. Alan Rickman truly deserved to be nominated for the last one.June 11, 2012 at 10:31 am #62821
I would say Alan Rickman for Deathly Hallows Part II. In my personal awards, he’s the only one who I have ever nominated. Although Staunton and Gambon came close to being nominated for their performaces in Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince respectively. I agree they should have at least being nominated for a SAG ensemble for the final film.
