Richard Armitage’s name is appearing on a number of Emmy prediction and/or “deserving of” lists.
This is from The Round Table
Guest performer categories are ones where, historically, excellent series get the consolation nod. Last year, Margo Martindale gave The Americans fans a small, small piece of satisfaction by winning in the Guest Actress category. Even though The Americans has had a tough time swaying enough of the voters to make it a major contender throughout the rest of the Drama categories, there’s some solace in any amount of recognition. If Martindale, why not Armitage? Richard Armitage haunts the second half of Hannibal’s third season by giving one of the most imposing, physical performances in years as Francis Dolarhyde, the Tooth Fairy. “The Great Red Dragon,” the first episode of that arc, begins with a dialog-less montage of the Tooth Fairy’s inception and is a terrifying evolution of self-discovery. Dolarhyde has been portrayed by actors as renowned as Tom Noonan and Ralph Fiennes, but Armitage makes the role his own and elevates it to the demanding level of quality at which Hannibal operates. With the popularity of the Hobbit films, Armitage has the added benefit of a bit more name recognition, but even without that boost, “The Great Red Dragon” showcases Armitage’s character as an opposing force to Hugh Dancy’s Will Graham that is as confounding, compelling and complicated as viewers could want out of a final antagonist for the series.
