Poll predicts a 'Harry Potter' best picture Oscar nod but no win
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2" will have the magic touch at the upcoming Oscars, according to a plurality of respondents to our Awards Tracker poll. As of Wednesday morning, 38.7% (832 voters) of our readers believe it will be nominated for best picture. However, they also predict it will lose. Eight hundred and twenty-two voters (38.23%) insist it will win.
Below are some sample perspectives from the comments section of the poll:
John Percival Wulfric Brian-Carlson: I think predicting the oscars in July is just kinda needless and silly. The vast majority of nominated movies come out in October through December, and it's rare for Blockbuster-summer movies to make the cut (or make it past just being nominated). So I think there's literally no way of knowing …. At this point last year, a movie about facebook co-starring Justin Timberlake sounded laughable and look what happened.
Steven Stark: One sure way to get more and younger people to watch the Oscars telecast.
Alessandro Zanchin: Hope not. It's just an entertainment movie, not a Oscar movie. Nominations for some techs is enough.
