Harry Potter Studio Launches Oscars Campaign
Warner Bros pushing to end snubs for record-breaking franchise...
The Harry Potter movies are the most successful film franchise in the history of the big screen, but the one thing that eluded them is recognition in the main categories of the Academy Awards.
But it has been suggested that the best hope for Oscar glory could be a nomination for the ever-popular Alan Rickman as best supporting actor for playing Professor Severus Snape.
Daniel Radcliffe said: "I don’t think there is going to be another performance from an actor in a supporting role that is so powerful."
Up until now the film series has scored nine Oscar nominations in categories such as best art direction and best score - but it have always come home empty handed.
The studio clearly thinks now is the time to get paid, so to speak.
