Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 ‘For Your Consideration’ trailer

deathly hallows oscars Image The Harry Potter films have picked up 9 Oscar nominations over the past ten years, for categories such as cinematography, art direction, visual effects and score, but none walked away with a statue and no film has been considered for Best Picture.

Following the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 earlier this year to great critical acclaim (96% on Rotten Tomatoes) Warner Bros. declared their intentions make a final push for some awards recognition, and they’ve now released a ‘For Your Consideration’ trailer.

Watch below:

One hurdle Warner Bros. will have to overcome is the recent rule changes regarding nominations for Best Picture. Back in June the Academy announced that instead of nominating 10 movies for Best Picture as they have done since 2009, they will now only nominate the movies they think deserve it (a number between 5 and 10).

This was a welcomed move as if there are only 8 movies that truly deserve recognition in a given year, they shouldn’t feel an obligation to round out the number just because the rules say they should. However, this may create a problem for Deathly Hallows: Part 2 as voters tend to prefer low budget dramas, where as Potter is a $200+ million action fantasy. It should get a bunch of technical nominations, but will the Academy consider it for Best Picture?

    96% on RT, thought it was 97%. I guess some bitter critic gave it a rotten to lower it’s score.

      Just check, yup, I’m right. The last rotten review doesn’t even sound rotten.

    “Where as Potter is a $200+ million action fantasy”
    There’s barely any action in these films. Well, not as much as other blockbusters. It’s more character driven.

    As for if HP will be nominated in this area, I don’t know but it will be so happy if is.
     
    I hope it will nominated in all categories for:
    It’s visual effects and other technical stuff,

    best makeup
     
    beautiful soundtracks made Alexandre desplat
     
    and last but not least the, incredible Alan Rickman for best supporting actor.
     
    I MUST SAY, THAT I’M AM SO PISSED OFF WITH WARNER BROS FOR NOT PROMOTING RICKMAN FOR BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN THEIR WEBSITE FOR THE ACADEMY!!!!!!!

    It’s almost offensive how the Academy treats fantasy and sci-fi movies.  They have no respect and are incredibly closed-minded.  Lord of the Rings was an exception-it was so great they had no choice-but it’s ridiculous HP hasn’t walked away with a single Oscar given the quality of the acting and the films.
