If the Lord of the Rings experience is anything to go by, I suspect that the time to watch out for awards for the HP films will be the 2012 awards season. The first two LOTR films got some minor awards here and there, but there was a widespread feeling in the business that judgement was reserved until the final film was released. As we know, The Return of the King swept the board at the Oscars. Whether HP can score on that level…I’m honestly not sure (not being a diehard fan).
