Richard Armitage Finally Recognized For ‘The Hobbit’ At Saturn Awards, Speaks Of ‘Hannibal’

Richard Armitage Saturn Awards

British actor Richard Armitage who gave a compelling performance as Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the dwarves in The Hobbit trilogy, was finally recognized for The Battle of The Five Armies at the Saturn Awards.

On Thursday, fans of the handsome actor were elated that their man finally received the recognition he deserved for his masterful portrayal of the moody J.R.R. Tolkien character. Armitage was in command of all his scenes, especially in the last film of the trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and many felt that the film and his performance were shunned by the Oscars and other major awards, with no acting nominations to speak of.

At the Saturn Awards on Thursday, a very excited Richard Armitage received his much deserved award as Best Supporting Actor and thanked the Academy of Science Fiction Fantasy and Horror for their recognition on Twitter.

Richard was also there as part of the cancelled Hannibal cast and crew. Showrunner Bryan Fuller and co. have been using social media to find a new outlet that will continue to carry the masterfully produced horror TV show, one of the best out there.

Ironically the show scooped up three Saturn Awards after being cancelled by NBC. Richard Armitage was interviewed by Collider and spoke about his much awaited appearance as the serial killer, the Red Dragon in Hannibal.
