So they go for the whole shebang?

Not going to happen buddies. It will get some noms in the technical department, but nothing more.

And wouldn't be better to focus on one actor in the supporting category, instead of slumping people who barely had any screen-time at all. David Thewlis had two scenes, with no impact at all1.

hahahahaha, Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, blahblahblahblah.... The same happen a few years ago with The Dark Knight and only got recognize in the categories of Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Edit and Best Make Up, thatīs all.... Warner, I donīt know where is you head, Harry is NOT EVEN The Godfather or Casablanca.... Donīt expect too much next January!!!!!

Bwah hahaha ha!!!

Not even if they sacrificed all the individual cast and crew members to the gods of vanity, stupidity, and abject ignorance.

I think they should probably lower their expectations a little bit. Not so much Academy Award as MTV Movie Awards winner for their new category "Most Likely to end up giving Martin Scorcese a happy ending for an acting job." category.

And the winner is...Rupert Grint.

Clearly ALL done for marketing alone to stick some Oscar wins on their boxsets when they come out. And to get those like myself that wait 'til these hit my movie channel to pay closer attention to them. Emma's T&A is about the only reason I watch these (oh and the great performances from the classically trained actors within this series like: Rickman and Fiennes).

LMFAO. Harry Potter is no Lord of the Rings. Academy will go "f*ck outta here" after watching this.

from reading that middle paragraph it sounds more like 'warners is hoping to get nominated for the following categories: best picture, best director, best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, best supporting actress, best original score...f*ck it, ALL CATEGORIES!'

Only person who deserves award is Alan Rickman.

@witwicky-potter

Agreed and the oscar should be for "Putting up with those #$%()# kids." He is definitely the only Oscar worthy actor in that movie.

In respect to the whole movie for anything else however however: LOL HELL f*ckING NO.

You know what? Yes I support this movie. It was a beautiful conclusion to this series. Not overdone at all. I agree the main actors aren't worth giving awards to, except for Alan Rickman and maybe Ralph Fiennes, but this movie is the only great film I've seen although I'm sure Drive and a couple others are great contenders as well. But this movie had so much flippin' heart in it I would gladly give it Best Picture. If anyone actually read the stories it is very Lord of the Rings but earlier on before mass chaos strikes the world around it. The whole point was to stop that mass chaos from happening. And it was done in a modern context of the bad guys infiltrating the society around them and taking over slowly from the inside out. I say give 'em a shot. But agreed Oscars for the main actors no way. They gave solid performances but not nearly enough to call them Oscar worthy.

@Freudian_Nightmare
The amount of time means jack. Frikkin' Marlon Brando was in Godfather for like a third of the movie but it was how powerful his performance was in that film and how much his character mattered in the story that made him the main actor. In fact I notice a lot of great actors won the Oscar for being in the movie very little of the time. Just saying it's not impossible. But yeah David Thewlis shouldn't. He was TOO minimal.
Sleuth1989 writes:

And by the way, most big films that won Best Picture have never had many acting wins because all the performances of the actors worked together to create a great ensemble cast where they all contribute well to the story but where none stick out and just make the movie brilliant as a whole. I mean Crash, Lord of the Rings, Godfather, and The Departed are only a few examples of large casts getting nominations but not winning practically anything in the acting categories because they all functioned together as a whole for the movie.

Warner brothers must be smoking some seriously strong sh*t if they think HP7 will win in ANY major category. MAYBE makeup and special effects, but if Rise of the Apes is nominated, that will probably win.

And why not?

"The Lord of the Rings" trilogy won for it and they only desreved an Oscar for the first one.

HP8 was good, but it was nowhere near good enough for a best picture nomination. This is pig-headed and ridiculous.

@dave

Lord of the Rings only won as a nod to Peter Jackson and the amazing work he did bringing those books to life. True, the first one was the best, and the third was least in quality, but they were honoring him as a whole. Harry Potter has had no constancy, has bounced between different writers and directors, sub plots started and then dropped between movies, and to be honest (even though i love the films) they were really slopping. It wasn't a coherent work like Lord of the Rings was.

@marshall

I know what you mean. It was a good acheivemenT, I just don't think the last one should have won all those Oscars..it felt like the time "Titanic" won.

Yes there has been no constant with "Potter" movies but you can't blame them for trying and considering some of the sh*t that has won Best Picture over the last few years it's not that bad.
