    What does the Academy, BFCA, and film ritics have against Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 being nominated for Best Film?!

    I mean come Neil Minow, didn’t the movie got a 93/100 on BFCA or Critics Choice and did it do better that every film this year?

    • Nell Minow

      Good question, OCO 300. Perhaps because it is the last of a series and does not seem as fresh as some of the other films this year. But it was certainly one of the best of the year.
