In Praise of Voldemort and Snape: Why Ralph Fiennes and Alan Rickman...
You hear it said, now that the final Harry Potter movie is out, that we will all miss Harry, Ron, and Hermione, along with Daniel, Rupert, and Emma, and it may be that no trio of young actors has ever had such success in a series of pictures.

Although it would have been great, sadly Thomson is mistaken about Rickman's Tony Award win - he was nominated for Private Lives, but that year the Best Actor Tony went to Alan Bates.

Alan Rickman has been great throughout all 8 movies. Ever since the first movie, I knew that he is definitely one of the best actor in the HP series. And ever since the 7th book came out and we knew that Snape is in fact on Harry's side, I had always wondered how Rickman would convey the depth of the emotions and love and hurt that was potrayed in the book. And the result is he definitely exceeded my expectations by far and away. The scene where he said "but it's her son" was just heart-wrenching. When he hugged Lily was just amazing. Rickman delivered all the emotions, the pain, the hurt, the love, all of it; and we can actually feel it. I think it's the best accomplishment an actor can have - when the audience felt the emotions of the character he/she played. And for that, Rickman definitely deserves an Oscar.
