@RCArmitage Tweets Out Good Luck

And I say ( because you never would) especially to you, Richard Armitage.

Super Great Praise and Hope for Richard Armitage’s Emmy Chances

here. Thanks to @Chrissyinwm

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.

You have to scroll down quite a bit to get to the category Best Guest Actor.

This means that NBC selected The Great Red Dragon Episode to put Richard Armitage on the ballot. It’s simply the first step in the process – there are well over 100 names on this initial ballot. Names are listed in alphabetical order. Members of Academy ( or some screening committee, first) will choose from among all the names until the field gets whittled down to around between 5 and 10 names. Those actors will be in the field for winners.

My Emmy Dream Come True?

Thanks to Servetus on Me and Richard for posting a link to this article suggesting that Richard Armitage should receive an Emmy nomination for his guest role in HannibalHere

I don’t know who Gold Derby’s Daniel Montgomery is, who how successful a track record he has for predicting nominations,  but it is true, endorphins soared while I read this article and I feel rewarded for my good works today, volunteering for a spay/neutering program and helping  64 dogs and cats get through recovery after surgery today.

I’m probably a little more optimistic than Servetus that an Emmy nom may come, just because it’s so deserving and I still want to believe that talent will win out over other factors.

These were a few of the highlights for me:

[Armitage/Dolarhyde] speaks and moves as if apologizing for the space he occupies. Then he meets a film developer, Reba (“True Blood” alum Rutina Wesley)

More than perhaps any other villain in the show’s entire run, he channels a demonic rage that is downright otherworldly. Standing six-foot-two, Armitage has an imposing physical presence; with Reba he seems to cower in that height, but as the Dragon he towers with menace. To think, this is the same actor who played the diminutive dwarf Thorin for three years in the “Hobbit” films; seeing the two characters side by side, you’d never know it’s the same actor.

Pure joy to read, but there are some of us who will always be able to know it’s the same actor, because we know what he can do. This brings back to mind some interviews by Richard Armitage during Hobbit press tours, which makes one wonder about the irony of his being so good and versatile that casting directors can’t believe it either.
