Daniel Radcliffe Is Not Happy With Harry Potter's Oscar Snub!

| Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel RadcliffeHarry PotterAwardzSad Sad


We certainly can understand his frustration, given the amount of time and work he invested in the series - not to mention the better part of his childhood!

While the Harry Potter saga has been nominated for Oscars for its technical and craft achievements, it has never once won an Academy Award, and star Daniel Radcliffe recently revealed that he was frustrated that the last installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, was snubbed in the Best Picture category!

He explains:

"I don't think the Oscars like commercial films, or kids' films, unless they're directed by Martin Scorsese. I was watching Hugo the other day and going, 'Why is this nominated and we're not?' I was slightly miffed. There's a certain amount of snobbery. It's kind of disheartening. I never thought I'd care. But it would've been nice to have some recognition, just for the hours put in."

Understandable! Especially when the series is so universally loved and well-received by critics!

Doesn't seem right, does it?

What do U think?? Do U agree with DanRad??

    Couldn't agree more!

    Oh daniel I love you, but watching the Potter films as fun as they are they aren't really very good, and for someone who has become quite a good little actor, and for a film full of many great the acting was atrocious, maybe it was the directors fault.

    Hey Daniel … welcome to the world of reality. It's a 50/50 shot that an actual good movie (one that people like) gets teh recogition that it desires. Your right if some big name that Hollywood loves comes in and does a picture, it gets nominated.

  4. 4

    Absolutely..so well said. It's 100% true. The Oscars will nominate Incredibly Loud and Extremely Close..because it is a "mature" film yet horribly reviewed. Unbelievable.

  5. 5

    He's totally right! The Oscars just didn't want to give in to to pop culture, no matter how highly acclaimed and successful the movies were. I think if HP doesn't win something this year, it'll be the biggest travesty. Although only getting art/tech award nominations are just a pittance in light of how much these movies have accomplished.
    But they can take refuge in the fact that HP will probably be remembered much long than most of the others nominated. I can't remember most Oscar movies from one year to another, but HP speaks to a generation.

    Lord of the Rings was really the only geeky fantasy movie to get any Oscar love in many years - and they had to wait for the last movie for that. Meh. Oscars suck. It's basically Hollywood bigs patting each other on the back. Let 'em. We all know Alan Rickman should've gotten the best supporting nod. Just remember, Star Wars never got a lot of love either and look at that. (Original three, natch.)

  7. 7

    He's right. Deathly Hallows Part 2 was even reviewed better than Hugo by the critics–it has 96% on rotten tomatoes. For something like Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close to be nominated and not the last HP is so dumb. HP was much better despite the subject matter of the two films.

  8. 8

    I thought every movie after the very first one was quite bad, especially the last five. They were truly a waste of space in the sense that they were extremely forgettable. Truly some of the worst films I've seen. If any of them should've won, it should've been the first one. That said, Daniel is right about the snobbery. There are a lot of brilliant films out there which haven't gotten the recognition they deserved from the Oscars. But, then again, they did get recognition 'everywhere' else.

  9. 9

    Get serious. I know the HP movies are popular, but they aren't even close to being Oscar caliber. They just aren't.

    I don't know what about you, but I will always be #TeamHarry . I think they should've got an OSCAR! i TOTALLY AGREE WITH DANIEL!

    am i the only one who thinks these might not be his words given what he's said in other interviews, he's always seemed a little above caring about this kinda thing
