Harry Potter and the Golden Statuette?

Will the Academy finally be wild about Harry?

The Los Angeles Times recently explored the chances of Oscar honors for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1:

That battle for Oscar recognition may be as epic as Harry’s quest to defeat Voldemort. Over the years, the Warner Bros. series has occasionally received nominations for categories such as art direction, costume design and visual effects, but the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has never rewarded the series with a win.

The article goes on to suggest it’s unlikely Part 1 will garner any honors — but they’re more likely to come after Part 2 wraps up the series last year, in the form of a validating acknowledgment of achievement a la the 2004 Oscar triumph of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. A key difference is that the previous films in that series had won some technical awards and each had been nominated for best picture as well. For the Harry Potter films, any kind of Academy honor has so far proved as elusive as a Golden Snitch.
