As you can see from this handy chart on the HP Wiki (and this rather more detailed list on the HP Lexicon) Professor Snape not only failed to award a Gryffindor a single point, he failed to award anyone a single point.

Pottermore has a nice infographic showing the breakdown of point distribution in the novels. As you can see, the flow of votes only runs one way where Prof. Snape is concerned.

    @Randal'Thor - I could never work out why he didn't stand up at the end of Philosopher's Stone and give Malfoy a million points for eating his dinner nicely.

    @Worse_Username - Probably he did, just off-screen. Don't forget that literally thousands of points were awarded that we don't see.

    An interesting corollary is that Dumbledore failed to deduct any points.

    @jpmc - And that the most even-handed professor was Umbridge
