Collider TV Awards

Collider has named Richard Best Guest Actor/Actress in a Drama in their TV Awards.

 

Best Guest Actor/Actress – Drama

Richard Armitage – Hannibal (NBC)

Patti LuPone – Penny Dreadful (Showtime)

Margo Martindale – The Good Wife (CBS)

B.D. Wong – Mr. Robot (USA)

Cicely Tyson – How to Get Away with Murder (ABC)

Sam Elliott – Justified (FX)

Miranda Otto – Homeland (Showtime)

Ian McShane – Ray Donovan (Showtime)

Winner: Richard Armitage

2015 saw a wealth of fantastic guest appearances (Sam Elliott has never been more devilish, Margo Martindale never more conniving, B.D. Wong never more beguiling), but none were more fully arresting than Richard Armitage on Hannibal. Transforming himself — even through his physical movements — into the Red Dragon character was astonishing, terrifying, and without equal. Hannibal was a show that grew and matured with each new season, and for Armitage’s exceptional portrayal of Red Dragon to cap off the show’s run was a fitting, if bittersweet end.

Critics’ Choice Awards

Richard has been nominated for Guest Actor/Actress in a Drama series for Hannibal!
