it almost smells of a scam; Harry Potter films getting so little recognition, in spite of its wonderful actors, good music, beautiful sets and magical props.
It’s always a pleasure to see the actors receive nominations or awards for their achievements elsewhere.
HPDH PT 1 was much better than the last three HP movies and should get more nominations. I really enjoyed this film. I hope that as soon as they finish the series tht in a couple of years they will begin a new HP series of movies based on the books like they do spiderman, superman, etc.
I commented about this after the Oscars post this morning but I think I will say it again. I really love the fact that Harry Potter is getting recognition but I’m worried that it will never win because of the competition. The competition are all movies people think are sophisticated and smart and there is this premonition that Harry Potter is merely an obsession. Which it isn’t at all!!! The books were absolutely genius and everyone who made the movies did their very best so the movies need to get the attention they deserve… all in all I hope they win and aren’t judged just because.
You know they’re nominated they haven’t got them. I think everyone here is being pretty biased. Come on! Be a bit more objective people. Truth is adore these films but they don’t deserve acting recognition. We can only hope DH2 arrives with a bang that no one was expecting, including all these academies and associations. It would be nice for HP to close with a couple of high profile awards on its back. After all the books have achieved them
