Actor David Tennant has been nominated in the annual Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Awards. The actor, who memorably portrayed Barty Crouch Jr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and is currently starring in the popular Doctor Who series, is nominated in the Screen category. These awards are held to celebrate the diversity of talent in Scotland and “recognise the achievements and mark on Scottish culture made by individuals over the course of a year.” Readers will remember that author J.K.

Others nominated this year in the Screen category include actress Tilda Swinton (“Chronicles of Narnia”, “Michael Clayton“), actor James McAvoy (The Last King of Scotland, “Becoming Jane“), and independent director David Mackenzie (Hallam Foe starring Jamie Bell, Young Adam).

He’s surely been nominated for this because of Doctor Who, but he was great in GoF. In the book, Crouch jr has an interesting backstory, but he doesn’t really stand out much as a character. But David Tennant’s performance in his couple of scenes was so good, so brilliantly insane, he made him into a memorable villain in his own right.
