Not related to nursing, in any way

Let me just get on my high horse for a minute...How in the name of all that is good did Alan Rickman NOT get nominated for an Academy Award for the role of Snape?

I spent 6.5 books trying to figure out if Snape was the baddest literary character ever, or the most bad-assed. I lost sleep over it, for reals. And then Alan Rickman comes along and is like "BOOM. I'm the biggest BAMF ever so I'm awesome for this role, or whatever."

Let's be honest here: the first couple of Harry Potter movies were average, and then they got more amazing and then Half-Blood Prince came out and I was all whoa this is phenomenal! And then Deathly Hallows part II came along, wherein I sobbed like a small child because of the sheer epicness that is Snape - thanks to Rickman.

So I'm just saying, Academy. Whiskey tango foxtrot?

I adore Alan Rickman. He's one of the best villains to ever appear on screen, whether or not the Academy recognizes it. I'm sad to see the end of the Harry Potter movies, as it means no more Snape. Sigh.

I totally agree. Did you know that JK Rowling took him aside before the start of filming the first movie and had a talk with him about his character? So Alan Rickman knew Snape was a good guy the whole time.

The scene in Hogwarts where McGonagall goes for him and he looks at her like, I just can't... I will not hurt another person I love. Oh, I cried. Blubberingly.

Absolutely agree. I adore Alan Rickman. Snape was the best character in the whole HP series.
