Emma Watson will bring new 'Harry Potter' clip to MTV Movie Awards

June 4, 2011 |  8:00 am


Emma Watson may have graduated from the wizarding world, but she'll bring a bit of "Harry Potter" magic to the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night.

Watson, who plays brainy witch Hermione Granger in all eight "Potter" films, will take a break from filming "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" to present a previously unseen clip from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the final installment in the film franchise that has spanned a decade.

"Wizard-loving fans will be treated to a never-before-seen clip from the conclusion of the two-part motion picture event," MTV announced.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" is up for a chunk of the evening's awards, including best movie, best male performance, best female performance (Watson), best villain (Tom Felton's Draco Malfoy), best fight (Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint vs. Death Eaters) and, of course, best kiss (Watson and Radcliffe.)

None of that's to say the "Potter" nominees are shoo-ins; they'll face some stiff competition with "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse." The new "Potter" clip will share the spotlight with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" teaser trailer, which is also making its debut at the awards.

Maybe it's the perfect venue for the wizard-lovers and the vampire-crazed to square off.
