Interviews, Quotes & Photos from the Saturn Awards Red Carpet & Press Room

Saturn Awards 2015

A fanatical Tolkien fan, Best Supporting Actor Winner Richard Armitage (The Hobbit Trilogy) relished the chance to bring those magical creatures – and beloved characters to life.

Richard thanked his fans for being so supportive. Their reward? Extended edition Hobbit movies released to Blu-Ray, with an extra six hours of movies to enjoy!

He also talked about his experience guesting on the recently cancelled Hannibal. Calling it a phenomenal experience, the role of Francis Dolarhyde – the Red Dragon – gave Richard the chance to delve into the fascinating character. He wrote diaries for the character – which he then shared with Bryan Fuller – and called it a “dark and strange place to be. But a really enjoyable one.”

Bryan Fuller was on hand to pick up Hannibal’s award for Best Network Television Series. He quipped it’s “wonderful to get the award – after our cancellation!”

Might this help Hannibal find another home? “Every little bit counts,” Bryan told the press (so keep tweeting, emailing and nominating Bryan Fuller for awards to help save the show!).
