BONUS DAY: Harry Potter Oscar Consideration billboards...

Harry Potter Oscar Consideration billboard 2011
Wouldn't it be great if Harry Potter could go out on a cinematic high, not just enjoying blockbuster box office success, but finally to win a prestigious Academy Award for the film franchise grand finale.

That's what Warner Bros. Studios are hoping for anyway, and to coincide with the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part two on Blu-ray, they are also kicking off their Oscar campaign around the streets of L.A. to capture the attention and imagination of all the Academy voters.

Daily Billboard especially likes this close-up of Harry's spectacles, where if you look through the lens the Harry Potter logo comes into focus and is not so blurry. It's small, but it's a nice design touch.

It's sad to think that after all these years these may be the last Harry Potter movie billboards we see for a while, at least until some anniversary or the studio decides to re-make the franchise from scratch in a few years time.
Harry Potter and Snape billboard
Daily Billboard will certainly miss Harry, Snape and Voldemort gracing the skies of Los Angeles, so be sure to enjoy this Oscar consideration collection.

If you're a fan, be sure to also check out these billboards for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part two and Part one billboards.

Maybe soon they'll have something to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I wonder if anyone else caught that the billboards are grammatically incorrect. It says "Consider one of the best...", shouldn't it be "Considered"

    These are really cool shots though!

  2. In other circumstances you may be correct, but in this instance these billboards are mainly trying to encourage Oscar voters to vote for the final Harry Potter movie, so 'Consider' the film is what it wants them to do.
