Congratulations, Harry Potter filmmakers! Looks like you're getting some much deserved recognition.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts will be giving the Harry Potter film franchise an award for "Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema."
After earning over $5.4 billion worldwide, we'd say this is a well deserved honor for Harry and Co.
Maybe the Harry crew will REALLY impress us with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and then we'll honor them here in the U.S. as well.
Just think! If the next Harry Potter film were to be nominated for Best Picture, it'd be the first time that "part 8" of a series would be nominated for the coveted Oscar.
…And no, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan did not get a nom for the top Academy Award. LOLz.
Do U think the Harry Potter films deserve to be further honored?
