The final Harry Potter movie marked the end of an era this summer, and Warner Brothers is trying to punctuate the epic saga’s conclusion with an Oscar blitz.
A series of “For Your Consideration” ads have been released with the intention of lobbying voters to nominate Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King won Best Picture, so Warner Bros. certainly has a chance to gain some critical recognition for the franchise.
Here’s the latest ad the Academy should ignore at its peril:

The actor who played Vincent Crabbe the bully in six Harry Potter films before getting canned following a marijuana arrest, has been charged with possession again.
Only this time, he was allegedly caught with a HOMEMADE BOMB.
According to UK reports, he intended to detonate it during the London riots this summer. Police say surveillance video showed the 22-year-old miscreant was packing a Molotov cocktail while looting champagne from a drug store on August 8.
Cops eventually arrested Jamie Waylett on September 20.

Today’s rumor mill suggests that Daniel Radcliffe is very eager to get married to her love interest Roseanne Coker. The little known Roseanne, who is called ‘Rose’ by her friends, may be a new personality to the press, but Daniel has been dating her more than a year and has developed a genuine liking for the young brunette.

Even in foreign land of the United States, there is little chance that the “Harry Potter” series’ British star Daniel Radcliffe will be unrecognizable to the common eyes. And especially not, if he is walking on the NYC streets hand in hand with an unknown but attractive brunette romancer.
In a recent interview with veteran host Larry King, Radcliffe had revealed that he is seeing someone and is very serious about her.
He said, “I’ve got a girlfriend at the moment, who I am very much in love with. So you know, we’ll see where that goes.”

After a horrible start to 2011, Hollywood’s power brokers had a lot riding on this summer’s movie season. By the looks of the failing economy, you wouldn’t think the numbers would’ve picked up. But riding on the backs of big budget sequels, like the billion dollar hits Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean, the movie industry has something to smile about. Save for the booming technology sector in Silicon Valley, Hollywood seems the be the only bright spot in an economy that looks wobbly at best.
Analysts are predicting that box office receipts will be up at least five percent from lastMore >
Rumors of a break-up grew stronger last night when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez arrived separately at the Teen Choice Awards. But they were soon seated together and kissing, proving such rumors to be wholly untrue.
The 19-year old ‘Monte Carlo’ star stunned fans in a strapless ivory dress and posed with her band, The Scene as well as with fellow Disney star Demi Lovato. Justin meanwhile chose a leather waistcoat and sporty bow tie and was spied posing with Tyra Banks before being seated with Gomez.
And the night proved worthy of the effort shown in their wardrobe: Selena won five awards –More >
How do you follow up what may turn out to be the highest-grossing film of all-time? By placing your career in the hands of one of Hollywood’s most respected directors.
Such is the direction Emma Watson will reportedly take, as sources confirm she’s negotiating to join Guillermo Del Toro for his remake of Beauty and the Beast. Not many details are available on the subject, but it’s safe to assume Watson would portray Belle.
First, though, the actress will attend Oxford University in the fall to study English.
In order to focus all her energies on the promotion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2, Emma Watson took a break from her academic career in 2009. She put her studies in the US on hold with a view to resuming them in the future.
Now the Harry Potter franchise has come to its conclusion and the Briton has decided to study for a year at Oxford. But she insists that she will return to America in 2012 for the completion of her four-year liberal arts degree.
Speaking in a recent interview, the Paris-born actress explained, “I haven’t left Brown. I’m still enrolled at Brown. ButMore >
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the new box office champion. It broke pretty much every record over the weekend, knocking The Dark Knight into second place in many categories.
But for how long can Harry, Hermione and company hold off The Caped Crusader?

In what will likely be the first of many records set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, the film has knocked The Twilight Saga out of a number-one perch.
The final adventure for Daniel Radcliffe and company $43.5 million at midnight screenings Friday morning, demolishing the $30 million mark set by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Harry cleared $80 overall yesterday, blowing by the $72 million record by The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Look for it to gross over $180 million before the weekend is over, which would move it past The Dark Knight and prove once and for all:

It’s safe to say that few films are greeted with the simultaneous feelings of elation and dread that surround Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
For 10 years, Harry, Ron, Hermione & Co. have touched millions of lives, maturing and gaining confidence as they transitioned from misfits to heroes.
In a sense, their journey has mirrored that of Harry Potter‘s fan base, for whom this is more than a film. Harry is a best friend, part of the fabric of life.
Sadly, as we celebrate its greatness, we must also let that friend go at last.

Lindsay Lohan. Britney Spears. Demi Lovato. We all could keep the names coming. These days, it’s only a matter of time before another young actor or actress dives off the deep end, shaves their hair, and very publicly drags themselves off to rehab. The problem: we expect teen celebrities to fail, to reveal themselves as drug addicts, to turn up in rehab. If tomorrow morning Daniel Radcliffe overdoses on crack and wakes up in jail, all your friends will say, “I told you so.” No biggie. Another shining star falls and life moves on.
The bigger problem: teen celebrities listen to and learn fromMore >
Two members of the Big Brother 13 cast got into an argument Tuesday, which in itself isn’t news. Jeff Schroeder’s homophobic comments – stemming from a discussion of Harry Potter, of all things – are being widely criticized, however.
Jeff clearly hasn’t seen the films or read the books, but nevertheless starts laying into Dumbledore, who author J.K. Rowling says she always thought of as gay:
Newcomer Kalia Booker defends the books and the character, but Jeff stresses how wrong it is to send kids to a “fantasy camp” run by a gay man.
