And the Oscar Goes To...Part 3

So, like the post before said, today is The 83rd Academy Awards. We've come as close to seeing all of the movies as we're going to get and so, now, its time to just sit back and enjoy the rest of the ride. (AKA - The Awards.) So, today, just as a why not type of venture, I'm going to tell you two things. First, what I would like to see win the awards and what I think the Academy is going to pick. This is to do two things. One, remind you of what's most important on It Takes Two, and that's my opinion. The other is so I can avoid the common mistake those that participate in the Death Race do. Most of us get so emotionally attached to movie, we can't think outside our box, and that's what I'm trying to avoid! So, without further ado, The Oscar Goes to...

I have a feeling that Harry Potter's big year at the Academy Awards is going to be the year of the last film in the series (sort of how Lord of the Rings: Return of the King won 11 and the other two films won 4 of 13 and 2 of 6 for a total of 6, respectively). All 3 movies were shot at the same time, and so I doubt that the 3rd movie was *that* much better on so many categories that it deserved an all time tying most wins (Ben Hur, Titanic) for the third movie but hardly anything for the first two.

Harry Potter, on the other hand has 9 nominations between the 8 films and zero wins. Perhaps not, but I'd imagine that HP is going to win some awards whenever Part II of Deathly Hallows is released. I don't think it will do a LOTR type sweep, but I think it probably will win something. Otherwise how sad will that be, 9 films, zero Oscars, $7 billion gross.

The $7 billion probably helps with the zero oscars.
