'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II' Gets Some Oscar Nods, But Not The Big One

Oscar nominations were just released and guess which movie didn't make the Best Picture category...Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II. There are 10 movies in that category, I mean the Academy is practically giving away the nods to everyone at that rate, but not to the magnificently produced and directed highest grossing film of 2011. I'm sure those other films are lovely movies that deserve the nomination; however, having seen none of the nominations, I can say with honesty that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II is the best movie I saw and thus deserves a nomination in my book. At least they have the People recognizing their talent!

On the bright side, the movie did get some nominations: Best Art Direction, Best Makeup, and Best Visual Effects.

And, because I love a reason a to talk about Tom Felton, let's transition. Planet of the Apes Rise of the Apes is also up for Best Visual Effects so yay to Mr. Tom Felton for being in 2/5 visually pleasing movies.

Today is a VERY big day for Mr. Felton. First Oscar nominations, and now he must anxiously prepare his dog Timber for her first plane ride! Check out Tom's adorable overreaction to the situation via Twitter:
Big day for my dog tomorrow @British_Airways please look after her! She's very timid & friendly and it's her first ever flight!
More than a little anxious about Timber's first flight tomorrow! Bless her all cooped up in a crate. She seems very relaxed about it all x
Thinking about fashioning and installing some sort of walkie talkie system between me and the crate, then I can talk to her on the flight! x
"timber this is your captain speaking. Please keep all paws inside the crate and all times,Refreshments will be served in the bowl"
"no iPods during take off or landing, I know what your like! If you need anything just bark. Enjoy the flight" x

Dog lovers everywhere are swooning right now. Heck, I'm not even a dog lover but I'm considering becoming one for Tom Felton. And, because no post complete without a photo, here is a picture of Tom's dog taken on a nice winter's day.

@TomFelton Lovely morning for a crisp Christmas morning walk. I Have sacrificed my scarf to a higher purpose :) x

  1. Swooning over the puppiness. As a recent first time traveler with a dog, I understand his anxiety. Such a pretty pup!
