Is Daniel a sore loser? Lisa Lee gives her verdict

Celebrities / Columnists / February 8, 2012

Daniel Radcliffe is P.O.’ed with the Academy Award nominations- and he’s not afraid to say it. With the nominations revealed on January 24, Radcliffe’s film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, was noticeably absent….not surprisingly. The series first seven installments received nine Oscar nominations in the past, though none for Best Picture, and none have ever won. So why is Mr. Potter so upset this time?

Apparently, Hugo’s nomination for Best Picture this year so disgusted Radcliffe as to speak up about this year’s Academy’s picks.

Speaking to the Radio Times, he said, “I don’t think the Oscars like commercial films, or kids’ films, unless they’re directed by Martin Scorsese.”

While Radcliffe may be right in pointing out Scorsese as an Oscar favorite, he may have forgotten last year’s nomination of the very commercial and children’s film Toy Story 3 for best picture.

Still, perhaps Radcliffe believes the final installment of the Harry Potter series deserves the same nod given to the last Lord Of The Rings movie, which received  eleven nominations in 2004, including Best Picture- and won them all.

Well, it’s really hard to feel sorry for the guy, considering all the money he’s made.  Why doesn’t he check out the gift shop at the Kodak Theatre, he can buy one there.  haha.
