Sir, did you not see your own movie? It was epic. It was heartbreaking. It was the culmination of a generation, an end of an era … a triumph!
Seems Daniel Radcliffe doesn't agree as on his press tour for The Woman In Black, he shared that he wasn't all that put off by the fact that the final Harry Potter film was snubbed for a Best Picture Oscar. He explains:
"I didn't expect it to be nominated for Best Picture, and no, it doesn't faze us. Just because we've been around for a long time, and made a lot of movies, I don't think when you come to the end of that series that anyone's obligated to say you're best picture. Obviously it would have been lovely, but I don't think it's something we're going to be losing sleep over."
Well, WE ARE! And we bet the same can be said of all the Potterheads all over the world!
Okay, we're being dramatic, but we really do think the film deserved at least the honor of being nominated. This wasn't just some fly-by-night flick. This was a decade long epic. It deserved something! But at the end of the day, regardless if the film was worthy or not, DanRad doesn't really put a lot of stock in the Oscars to begin with:
"I have mixed feelings about awards for actors in general. Obviously it's a lovely thing to be recognized by the public or by your peers, and I'm sure that's a very gratifying thing. But I always have a moment when I watch those big ceremonies… we love to pat ourselves on the back in this industry, and we like to tell ourselves how well we've done and how amazing we are. It's all very self-congratulatory."
Um, YEAH! That's part-and-parcel of being an actor.
Don't they teach this stuff to the British thespians? What does on over there???
