Daniel Radcliffe: ‘Harry Potter Deserved Oscar Recognition’

Daniel Radcliffe is upset the Harry Potter franchise has been largely overlooked by the Academy Awards, blaming Hollywood “snobbery” for the snub.

The final installment of the hit series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, is in the running for art direction, make-up and visual effects prizes at the upcoming 2012 ceremony.

But Radcliffe, who played the boy wizard in eight films, admits it’s “disheartening” to miss out on a chance at Oscars gold in the major categories.

He tells Britain’s Radio Times, “It’s kind of disheartening. I never thought I’d care. But it would’ve been nice to have some recognition, just for the hours put in. I don’t think the Oscars like commercial films, or kids’ films, unless they’re directed by Martin Scorsese.

“I was watching Hugo the other day and was going, ‘Why is this nominated and we’re not?’ I was slightly miffed. There’s a certain amount of snobbery.”

But the actor concedes, “How much of a pat on the back do we really need? We get paid stupid amounts of money.”

Daniel Radcliffe Gets Thumbs Up From Girlfriend’s Father

Daniel Radcliffe has won the approval of his new girlfriend’s father – he’s branded the Harry Potter star “a lovely guy”.

Last month (Jul11), the British actor revealed he had been secretly dating, but refused to name the woman he was “very much in love with”.
However, Radcliffe has since been snapped holding hands with his mystery partner in New York, where he’s currently starring in Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and she’s been identified as production assistant Rosanne Coker.
Radcliffe first met the 22-year-old brunette, a fellow Brit, while shooting Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in 2007, and they continued to work together on the final two boy wizard movies, The Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2.
Coker’s dad, Malcolm, has confirmed his daughter is dating Radcliffe, but insists their relationship only turned romantic last year (10).
And he’s given the actor the thumbs up.
Malcolm Coker tells Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, “I don’t want to say too much really as they would really prefer to keep things quiet. But Rosanne has worked on the last three Harry Potter films, so she and Daniel have known each other quite a long time. They have been going out for just over a year now.
“I have met Daniel and he is a lovely guy. I’m just really happy for Rosanne and as long as she is happy that is all that matters to me. No other parent would ask any more. I know it’s not a normal life they live. But they have a lot of fun together and, at their age, what more could you ask? Who knows where it is going to lead?”

Daniel Radcliffe Admits Alcohol Addiction

In the new issue of GQ magazine, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe reveals he stopped drinking last August after realizing he became reliant on alcohol “to enjoy stuff.”

“There were a few years there when I was just so enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person’s lifestyle that really isn’t suited to me,” Radcliffe, 21, admits.

“As much as I would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks and has a nice time, that doesn’t work for me,” he explains. “I’d just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.”

“There’s no shame in enjoying a quiet life. And that’s been the realization of the past few years for me,” Radcliffe tells GQ.

“I’m actually enjoying the fact that I can have a relationship with my girlfriend [Olive Uniacke] where I’m really pleasant and not f—— up totally all the time,” he adds.

Radcliffe can be seen next alongside Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in the final installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

2011 MTV Movie Awards Nominations:: Vampires Vs. Wizards

We always knew it would come to this: It’s wizards versus vampires at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards (aring June 5 at 8 p.m. ET on — you guessed it — MTV).

The network has announced the nominations for its 20th annual ceremony, and it’s official: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will square off against The Twilight Saga: Eclipse for best movie. Potter’s Emma Watson will duke it out with Twilight’s Kristen Stewart for best female performance. And Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe will have to face down Twilight’s Robert Pattinson for best male performance.

Twilight had the most nods of any movie with eight, also garnering noms for best kiss and best fight. Potter, which tallied six total nominations, scored nods for best kiss (between Harry and Hermione!) and best villain (for Draco Malfoy’s portrayer Tom Felton).

These movies may not have dominated the Oscars, but boy do they get teen girls invested. The show’s host, Jason Sudeikis, had better watch what jokes he makes at the expense of these “supernatural” stars. If the wizards and vamps don’t kill him, their teen fans might!

Which of these blockbuster franchises will carry the day? With its sultry love affair at the center of the action, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse may have the upper hand. But is it possible that neither film will come out on top? Why, of course. Fans could split their votes between the two, leaving one of the remaining three nominated films (Black Swan, Inception or The Social Network) to steal the popcorn trophy. Our money would be on Inception, which earned a not-too-shabby seven total nominations. In particular, star Joseph Gordon-Levitt might want to get ready for his close-up — he’s nominated for both best fight and biggest badass star!

In the meantime, if you’d like to see a full list of nominess and, more importantly, if you’d like to make your voice to be heard in this important matter, you can vote at MovieAwards.mtv.com through June 4.

Robert Pattinson: The Chocolaty Flavor of the Vampire Season

Kristen Stewart would approve of it, Taylor Lautner would solemnly surrender and Daniel Radcliffe shall humbly accept. Twilight boy Robert Pattinson is the current flavour of the season as he is on every girl’s lips from dawn to twilight, from Canada to China.

Such a phenomenal rise has this chocolate vampire seen in the past few months that it instantly evokes some sort of reverence for the vampire. He first made a dent playing the wizard Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Even though, he played a sidekick to Radcliffe in the film, he arrested some attention. So popular is the Potter series that he earned some recognition in every Muggle household.

However, it was Stephenie Meyer whose Twilight novels catapulted him to where he is standing with heads held high. Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse; with these 3 films, Robert has carved an immortal place in the hearts of the fairer sex.

Even though, in terms of acting, Robert is still to make some progress (he is only a mediocrity when it comes to sheer acting mettle), still his lightning bolt looks has ensured that his name is chanted in every house where resides a woman. With more films like ‘Bel Ami’, ‘Water for Elephants’ and ‘Breaking Dawn’ slated for 2011, his popularity can only move northwards……. After all, he is the ultimate sex icon, the messiah of the vampires…one and only one- Robert Pattinson
