    It’s the seventh installment of HP, just for factual correctnesses sake.

    I doubt that Harry Potter will ever get nominations in the acting category. Part II might have a slim chance of getting nominated for Best Picture just to celebrate the end of a highly successful series that has been around for a decade.

    I do think, however, that both parts of Deathly Hallows have very high chances of getting nominations in a few of the tech categories. I think production designer Stuart Craig absolutely deserves the Art Direction Oscar for Part 1. And the visual effects team will probably get nominated. Maybe Score and Cinematography as well?
