WB begins Oscar campaign for Harry Potter

Posted by Christina Cooper on November 4, 2011 at 3:40 AM



As shocking as it is, the Harry Potter saga has yet to win an Oscar.  It seems like this year, Warner Brothers is looking to change that.  The Potter saga, which has grossed over $6 Billion dollars world-wide is 0-9 in Oscar victories.  But can this years Oscar race be Harry's year to win that golden statue?


As much as I would love to see Harry Potter walk away with it's first Oscar (for the final film) on the biggest night in Hollywood, it doesn't seem likely. The Academy has never shown Potter love before.  Although I do think this is the best Potter film to date, if it were to win, I bet it would be for Art Direction or Cinematography, rather than Picture or Supporting Actor or Actress. 


But Warner Bros has faith in the fact that this is the last chance for Potter to walk away with an Oscar... They've put togethr an awesome site which you can check out HERE.  WB has also created a new trailer, showcasing the best parts of the final movie. Check it out below:

Its hard to say, I kind of agree with the fact the the Academy hasnt shown them any love in the past and that their best bet are the less prominent catagories like art direction, cinematography, etc. I can kind of see sometime in the future that the series might win some award for something about how it encompassed a generation or some sort of over arching award much later on, but you never know when it really comes down to it the series is full of incredibly talented people, including actors and this is some of their best work... only time will tell
