I have eventually well and truly entered the Harry Potter world and I love it! Yes I have now seen all of the films and very much looking forward to the release of the Deathly Hallows: Part II. But up until seeing Part I last year I hadn’t even seen all of the films (Yes that did cause some confusion as somethings that were going on I had no clue about). But since seeing that film I bought the full collection of the books and over the past week I have read the 3rd and half way through the 4th and they really are just fantastic. Whilst reading I keep thinking why haven’t and didn’t I read these years ago! I was the ideal age when the first one was released that J.K. Rowling was going for.
This has inspired me to re-enter the film world after reading the books, which in all honesty probably won’t take me much longer as they are so addictive to read. Loving every second of them. So well written and thought out. I know doing it the wrong way round after seeing the films but everyone keeps telling me that the differences are easy to notice while getting further through the books.
In the build up to the final film release my blog is going to be totally taken over by Harry Potter! I plan on top 10 lists, a deep look into the characters and in general a celebration of the most successful British film franchise of all time. How many actors are involved and how important it really has been in the film industry. A lot of my favorite British actors have featured in the Potter films as well.
This has to be good news for all of those involved in the Harry Potter franchise as they have been snubbed with so many awards over the years. This announcement comes a few days after news of some of the cast members being disappointed that the films have not received anything on the awards front. Ideally the BAFTA awards should be the ones to reward Harry Potter. As it really has done wonders for the British film industry!
The cast and crew behind the HARRY POTTER franchise are to be honoured with a special award at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) prizegiving.
Potter author J.K. Rowling and producer David Heyman will accept the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema trophy at the ceremony later this month (Feb11).
The hit films, about a boy wizard played by Daniel Radcliffe, will be recognised for showcasing British talent and providing a vast array of jobs for thousands of workers in the U.K.
Radcliffe says, “I am thrilled that the Harry Potter film series is being honoured with this award. I have loved every minute of making these films and to me the real heroes are the crew and the huge team of craftsmen that have made all eight of them possible – this award is a testament to their incredible work.”
