Happy Saturn-day Celebrating Richard Armitage’s Best Supporting Actor Win, June 27, 2015 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #775)

Continuing to be thrilled for the exquisitely talented British Actor Richard Armitage’s win as 2015--SaturnAwards--RichardArmitage-won-BestSuppActor_Jun2515RCATweet-sized-clrBest Supporting Actor at Thursday’s 41st Annual Saturn Awards–for fantasy, science fiction, and horror films–below are my musings and several fan wallpaper responses of congratulations and such!


But first!  The man himself, Richard Armitage!  Take a bow, Sir!  Your searing and epic portrayal of Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit Films–and especially in The Battle of the Five Armies–has cemented the legend of Thorin’s quest, honor, and leadership in our hearts for generations to come!  Congratulations for this much deserved honor!

Now to some of the fan expressions of congratulations to and celebration of Richard Armitage:

Love this Happy Saturn-Thorin Day wallpaper by   Glady Roland, which inspired me to post this topic today, Satur-n-day, versus on Sunday:

M Lady Gisborne at her It’s an RA World blog  has collected several of the Saturn Awards party images together in her blog post.

RANet (www.RichardArmitageNet.com) will also have a gallery of pictures soon.  Until then, checkout the RANet Twitter feed for pix and this video of RA accepting his award:


And Obscura at her Ancient Armitage blog also explains the present and historical context for those flower crown pix (below). Thanks!

Congratulations again, Richard!  Hugs!

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    So much is going on with that pix. Ha! But I’ll just stick with the Thorin Sandwich notion that popped into my head. *blushes*


  4. June 27, 2015–I also loved this big screen view of Richard Armitage accepting his award at the Saturn Awards. Thanks to Teresa A for the image (from Facebook)!


  5. June 27, 2015–Fedoralady (Thanks!) of The Armitage Effect blog did the flower crowns image with a twist, after she shared this posed snoozing image of a tired/sotted Richard Armitage (Ha!). Richard Armitage is such a goofball at times–and he certainly doesn’t mind puncturing his own urbane image–as he does here. Ha!
