Oscar Telecast to Include Brief Clip of "Half-Blood Prince"

The New York Times is reporting today that a brief clip from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be shown at the end of the Oscar telecast on February 22nd. This comes as producers of the Academy Awards program asked various studios to provide scenes and clips from upcoming movies for the Oscar show this year. Today, the Times says that Warner Bros will be showing footage from "Sherlock Holmes," directed by Guy Ritchie with Robert Downey Jr.; "Terminator Salvation," directed by McG with a temperamental Christian Bale; and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” directed by David Yates with Daniel Radcliffe."

At this point we do not know if the HBP footage will be from previously released trailers or this will be new footage, and we will update with more when we can. The Oscars will be broadcast on ABC television Feb 22, 2009  beginning at 8pm (ET).

Thanks Thiego!

And this is one of those times I wish I had cable. I don’t watch t.v., only dvds, and this is how they torture me for it. Aye me.

I won’t get my hopes up — it’ll probably just be a couple seconds of footage. But I love watching the Oscars anyway, so I’ll be tuned in, rooting for Kate, Mickey, and Heath!

Suddenly, I will actually be watching the Oscars. Or at least taping them and fast-forwarding to the bit with the footage in it. Or taping it, waiting until Leaky tells me if the footage is new or not, and then either fast-forwarding to the bit with the footage in it or just taping over it and pretending the whole thing never happened. And then I will make myself a sandwich, and do a little dance in the kitchen. The end.

I wasn’t going to watch the oscars this year, but now I am so going to watch. I’ll make sure that I reserve the living room television for that night.

"What's that supposed to be anyway?" asked Fred, squinting at Dobby's painting. "Looks like a gibbon with two black eyes."[br]"It's Harry!" said George, pointing at the back of the picture. "Says so on the back!"[br]"Good likeness," said Fred, grinning. H
